The Maker Foundation Interim Governance Facilitator has placed an Executive Vote into the voting system, which will enable the community to approve the addition of USDC as a new collateral type.
If passed, USDC can be used to open Vaults in order to generate Dai.
As detailed in this forum post, the main goals that the community should aim to achieve with the introduction of USDC as a collateral type are as follows:
- Increase Dai liquidity specifically for keepers taking part in both FLIP and FLOP auctions.
- Increase Dai liquidity such that the Dai peg moves closer towards $1.
The rationale for holding this vote outside of the traditional weekly cycle is discussed in detail in the forum post above. Please join the ongoing discussion at forum.makerdao.com and review the discussion to inform your position before voting.
Voting for this proposal will place your MKR in support of adding the collateral type outlined above.
