RWAs in MakerDAO

From looking at the MakerDAO community forum it appears as though MakerDAO will soon be onboarding Real World Assets (RWA). There have been a couple MIP6 proposals to onboard traditional real world assets into the MakerDAO system to help bring the DAI peg back to $1. Right now there are over $850,000,000 worth of DAI in existence, all over collateralized with digital assets such as ETH and USDC. A few of these real world assets potentially to be added as collateral options are as follows:

  • ConsolFreight, Financing freight invoices, Capital needs in DAI: up to 5M, Current Cost of Capital: they have a bank line of credit at 1.5% for $50k, MIP6 1

  • New Silver: Financing real estate backed loans, Capital needs in DAI: 15M, Current cost of Capital: NS holds a private fund credit line of $20M with a 3MO LIBOR +4.75%, MIP6 2

  • Paperchain, Financing music streaming invoices, Capital needs in DAI: 1M, Current cost of capital: sourcing from independent investors and funds at 6-10% range, MIP6 3

  • KickFurther, Financing consignment inventory for eCommerce & retail brands, MIP6 application to follow

  • Harbor Trade Credit, Financing short term trade finance transactions MIP6 4

Market Turmoil

This past week was everything but boring it both the traditional markets and crypto markets. Not only was Donald Trump diagnosed with Covid but it was also serious enough for him to be transported to Walter Reed Hospital. Fortunately, he seems to be doing “very well” and will soon come back to the White House. This combined with a possible approval of a new Stimulus Package this weeks should add some fuel to stock market gains. On the crypto side of things, at the beginning of the week Kucoin confirmed it had been hacked to the tune $204 million in various forms of cryptocurrency including Bitcoin, Litecoin, Bitcoin SV, XLM, XRP, SNX, and numerous others. Some of the ERC20 tokens were “dumped” on Decentralized Exchange Uniswap due to its permissionless trading capabilities. If that wasn’t disastrous enough, the DoJ and SEC charged Bitmex (Foreign Derivatives Exchange) for money laundering and unlawful operation of an exchange. Even with all this, Bitcoin’s price declined a few percent but has recently recovered most of its losses.

*Tools: Metamask (Wallet), Remix IDE (Development Environment), Solidity (Smart Contract Language) Ethereum (Blockchain)

# set pragma

pragma solidity >=0.5.0 <0.7.0;

# contract (Source)

contract Coin {
    address public minter;
    mapping (address => uint) public balances;

    event Sent(address from, address to, uint amount);

    constructor() public {
        minter = msg.sender;

    function mint(address receiver, uint amount) public {
        require(msg.sender == minter);
        require(amount < 1e60);
        balances[receiver] += amount;

    function send(address receiver, uint amount) public {
        require(amount <= balances[msg.sender], "Insufficient balance.");
        balances[msg.sender] -= amount;
        balances[receiver] += amount;
