Buy MKR in a few steps

What is MKR

Launched in December 2017, Maker is the governance token for the Maker Protocol, which manages the DAI stablecoin on the Ethereum blockchain. Maker and DAI are issued by the MakerDAO, one of the earliest decentralized finance projects.

Unlike traditional stablecoins, DAI is pegged to the dollar but is backed by MKR. The Protocol employs smart contracts to regulate the MKR token supply such that it is automatically issued or burned to keep DAI’s price stable.

By holding MKR, users can participate in the voting on the Maker Protocol, for which they subsequently earn rewards. MKR holders actively influence the management of DAI, interest rates, asset pairs offered on the platform, and so on.

Cryptocurrency is a new class of digital assets popularized by Bitcoin (BTC). While cryptocurrencies or digital/virtual currencies work much like their traditional fiat counterparts, the biggest difference between the two is the lack of centralized infrastructure and banks.

Where fiat currencies are issued by and kept in banks, digital currencies are issued via distributed mechanisms that follow strict consensus protocols. This translates into cryptocurrencies being stored on blockchains which are largely immutable, much more transparent and globally accessible.

Given their utility and growing list of use cases, cryptocurrencies are gaining popularity and one way to buy cryptocurrency is to use a reliable crypto exchange like OKX. On OKX, users can sign up, verify their identities and start buying Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies instantly using credit cards, debit cards, bank transfers and other supported payment methods.

Typically, when you buy cryptocurrency, you have to store it in a dedicated wallet, but the security of your digital assets depends on how safely your private key is kept. Every cryptocurrency wallet has a private key which allows complete access to the stored digital assets. If you lose your private key, you effectively lose your funds.

Using an exchange like OKX also facilitates users because their newly purchased or traded digital assets are kept securely on the platform and are credited into users' accounts, available to be sold or transferred as required.

Ultimately, users should always buy cryptocurrency from a reliable exchange, and if they withdraw their digital assets to a personal wallet, they should keep their private keys safe and backed up to ensure the security of their funds.
