About MakerDAO – GemJoin9 for PAXG Smart Contract

MakerDAO implements a novel join adapter (GemJoin9) to be used with the PAXG token, an ERC20 token with fees on transfers.

“The Maker Protocol, also known as the Multi-Collateral Dai (MCD) system, allows users to generate Dai by leveraging collateral assets approved by “Maker Governance.” Maker Governance is the community organized and operated process of managing the various aspects of the Maker Protocol. Dai is a decentralized, unbiased, collateral-backed cryptocurrency soft-pegged to the US Dollar. Resistant to hyperinflation due to its low volatility, Dai offers economic freedom and opportunity to anyone, anywhere.”
