MakerDAO Surges: $100 Million Investment In RWAs Signals The Shift To Traditional Markets


MakerDAO, a leading project in the blockchain space, has made significant strides in the Real World Assets (RWAs) market. Recent data from makerburn reveals that MakerDAO has added $100 million in RWA assets within the past two days through BlockTower Andromeda. These investments primarily focus on short-term U.S. Treasury bonds, boasting an annual interest rate of 4.5%. This move brings MakerDAO‘s total RWA assets to approximately $2.713 billion. Notably, on September 7, MakerDAO added $50 million worth of assets to the DAI escrow fund, reinforcing its commitment to RWAs. Impressively, nearly 80% of the platform’s fee revenue over the past year stems from real-world assets, cementing its position as the third-largest DeFi protocol by total value locked. However, RWAs have sparked debate within the community. Last August, founder Rune Christensen proposed a 25% hard limit on the protocol’s real-world asset collateral, which includes centralized stablecoins. This proposal came in response to the U.S. Treasury Department’s sanctions against Tornado Cash, raising concerns about broader government campaigns against digital assets. RWAs are on-chain representations of physical or traditional financial assets, encompassing real estate, bonds, and invoices. fullstory
