MakerDAO Launches “Endgame” with Goal to Reach 100 Billion DAI and Compete Against Tether

The highly anticipated “Endgame” transformation of decentralized finance protocol MakerDAO is set to launch, with co-founder Rune Christensen stating that it will focus on scalability and sustainable user growth.

In a series of posts on social media and the MakerDAO forum, Christensen announced the start of “launch season” for the five-phase plan, with Phase 1 in mid-2024 involving hiring a marketing firm to rebrand the platform into a more user-friendly and simplified version.

The ultimate goal of Endgame is to increase the market capitalization of the Dai stablecoin from $4.5 billion to over $100 billion, in order to compete with Tether.

Unizen, an AI-powered DeFi protocol, has announced plans to provide immediate reimbursement to users who lost $750,000 or less in a recent hack that resulted in a total loss of $2.1 million. This incident has raised questions about the security and decentralization of web 3.0 platforms, with concerns about the use of Microsoft Web Deploy 3.0 and the role of blockchain in this emerging technology.

On March 9, PeckShield, a blockchain analytics firm, reported an “approve issue” on Unizen’s platform, leading to the draining of over $2 million. To prevent further losses, users were advised to revoke approvals from the trade aggregator. SlowMist, a security company, estimated the losses to be around $2.1 million and noted that the attacker had exchanged USDT for DAI.

This incident highlights the need for secure and decentralized solutions in web 3.0, as well as the importance of marketing and education in building and promoting these platforms. With the rise of DeFi, NFTs, and DAOs, it is crucial to consider the implications of web 3.0 and its potential impact on the future of marketing and finance.
