About

What is Dai

Dai is a stablecoin, that is, a crypto pegged to another asset. Dai value is set at one USD, much like other popular stablecoins such as USDC or USDT. Note that this does not mean the price of Dai will be exactly one USD, but it remains relatively stable.

Dai has one distinctive feature, though: it is decentralized. There isn't a single issuing authority or a bank account holding one USD for every Dai in circulation. Instead, DAI price is backed by collaterals in other cryptos, and anyone can issue Dai as long as they follow the protocol.

What keeps DAI price stable

The exact mechanism of keeping Dai price stable is quite complex. If you're interested in crypto, it is well worth your own research.

In a nutshell: Dai worth is backed by collateral and maintained by a self-regulating mechanism. Anyone who provides a collateral can issue Dai, and users are incentivized to keep the DAI price stable, creating or destroying new tokens.

It's important to note that this system works, as shown by this Dai price chart. Even during some notable shake ups in the crypto market, Dai price in USD has seen limited change.

What can you do with Dai

Dai is used much like other stablecoins: it can be easily exchanged for other assets, such as other cryptos. Dai can also be invested in different decentralized finance (DeFi) projects, allowing you to earn passive income.

As a stablecoin, Dai is not particularly suitable for HODLing, that is, keeping it and waiting for its price to increase.
