MakerDAO's battle to keep up with DAI demand
- The supply of the decentralized stablecoin DAI has grown to 379.1 million, up from 134.7 million on July 1st (a 181.4% increase).
- New demand for DAI has been primarily driven by liquidity mining on Compound and yEarn. Increased demand has led to DAI consistently trading above its targeted $1 peg.
- Currently, the focus is on changing the parameters of, and adding new, collateral types to keep up with growing demand.
