DAI was created in 2017 by decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO), Maker, and is considered one of the first examples of decentralised finance to achieve mainstream usage. Like many stablecoins, its value is pegged to the US dollar by a system of smart contracts and decentralised governance.

Fun fact? According to founder Rune Christensen, the name DAI comes from the Chinese character for ‘to lend or provide capital for a loan’.
