Making Maker: June 2021
July 1, 2021
To kick off the latest updates with “Making Maker”, we thought we’d share some interesting stats. With the recent market volatility, plus the on-going growth of Maker, here’s a snapshot of the latest:
Status is hosting Merry Merkle, a fantastic giving event, for the second year in a row. This year, you can help build a school in South Africa for over 100 children eager to learn. By donating just a bit of Dai, ETH, or SNT, you can make a big difference. Merry Merkle integrated with our price oracle for ETH/USD exchanges, making donations easier.
We’re focused on fostering an open environment where critical conversations are encouraged, and where our stakeholders can speak directly to the teams involved with building out our products. This new initiative aims to directly foster the growth of the MakerDAO ecosystem by focusing on our community’s most motivated members. This includes a fund, bounties and more.
We’re excited to see so many projects integrate Dai in new ways. For example, BlockMason allows users to split bills or make small loans with friends with Dai! SimpleSwap has integrated Dai, letting users quickly & easily exchange a variety of coins for Dai without a sign up. MedCredits enables you to pay with Dai in their global healthcare market. And many more, stay tuned on social to hear the latest!
We had a whirlwind of a week in Prague, where we saw so much love for Ethereum and the Maker project. A huge thank you to our community for the tremendous support throughout this rewarding journey to bring forward a decentralized future for finance.

We’re passionate about our developer community and love seeing creative new projects integrate elements from the Maker Ecosystem. Join us in hacking fun projects at these hackathons. Recent events include Cryptolifeand Blockchain Summit Latin America Colombia. Winning projects can discuss continued support from the MakerDAO Core Community Development Fund.
Additionally, we love meetups, our gatherings are about building strong community and providing a forum for sharing knowledge. We have meetups around the world, such as this one we attended in Denmark.
Dai is now available on the Ripio exchange! For the first time, users in South America will be able to buy and sell Dai through Ripio, and its app, jointly achieving a new milestone in financial development of the region. Easily exchange Dai with Argentine #Pesos, Brazilian Reales, and Mexican Pesos.
