MakerDAO Focuses on Korea

National Relayer Campaign Designed to Drive Awareness and Adoption of Dai

Since the official launch of the MakerDAO Korean community in November 2018, a number of notable projects and companies have signed on to support the Dai ecosystem. Integrations by VANTA, Coinduck, and Metaps are all examples of how leading organizations are fostering the Dai ecosystem in Korea.

VANTA accepted Dai for its presale, and is planning to bring Dai into its ecosystem. Coinduck, which is the most popular Korean fiat-crypto application, integrated Dai -- making it accessible by more than 1000 partner stores and 13,000+ KYC confirmed users in Korea. Metaps accepted Dai for its gift card sale, which sold out within a few minutes.

To build on the strong support for Dai in Korea, the National Relayer campaign in Korea is launching soon.

The campaign is a community-driven effort that involves twelve Relayers that consist of Korean cryptocurrency exchanges, incubators, and VCs. These Relayers will introduce Korean projects that are in the early investment stage to Maker for integration. They will also promote Dai usage in various ways, including encouraging their associated projects to fundraise and integrate Dai in their dapps.

Many Relayers are already taking steps to help the Dai ecosystem, and we’re excited to see them building strong use cases from Korea!
