The new MakerDAO update may reduce risk for its users; here’s how.

MakerDAO’s latest update may help its users reduce their risk exposure by increasing liquidity.

In a tweet made by MakerDAO’s official twitter account on 10 November, it was stated that if the current executive vote passes, there will be certain changes made to the MANA A vault that will reduce its exposure to risk to more manageable levels. If the risk continues to decline, reductions in stability fees will be considered in MakerDAO’s future.

Important notice to MANA-A users.

If the current Executive Vote passes, the following changes will be deployed to the MANA-A vault type:

• Increase Stability Fee from 4.5% to 7.5%

• Decrease Debt Ceiling from 17 million DAI to 10 million DAI

Furthermore, over the past few weeks, the development activity for MakerDAO showed significant growth. This would indicate that the team at MakerDAO was making massive contributions to its GitHub. This spike in development activity suggests that the new upgrades and updates for MakerDAO may be on their way.

The number of daily active addresses on MakerDAO witnessed a drawdown over the past month. However, in the last few days, the number of daily active addresses improved.

In fact, MakerDAO’s network growth metric also witnessed an uptick during the same time period. Thus, indicating that the number of new addresses that transferred MKR for the first time had increased.
