DAI Token or ETH: what's the difference?
DAI is a stablecoin developed by MakerDAO. DAOs are organizations managed by the user community. The DAI token is based on the Ethereum network, so it is an asset that follows the standard of that network's protocol. ETH, in turn, is the native cryptocurrency of the Ethereum network and can be used as a means of payment within that blockchain. Unlike the DAI token which is priced around 1 USD, the price of ETH varies freely in the market.
What's the price of the DAI today?
Since DAI is a stablecoin, its price is linked to the price of another asset. In this case, US dollars. Thus, 1 DAI is equivalent to approximately 1 USD. If you want to know the approximate value of 1 DAI in a different currency, just check the US dollar exchange rate against the currency you want to compare.
Is DAI considered a stablecoin?
Yes, it is a stablecoin and a cryptoasset that has lower volatility compared to other types of cryptocurrencies. DAI uses other cryptocurrencies as collateral to guarantee its transactions, besides using its own mechanism to assure that its price is approximately 1 USD.
