Frequently Asked Questions

Bitvavo makes Maker as easy as possible. Here are answers to common questions to help you make your first steps in the world of digital assets.

What is Maker?

Maker is the governance token of MakerDAO and the Maker Protocol. MakerDAO is an open-source project on the Ethereum blockchain and a Decentralized Autonomous Organization created in 2014. Through a system of governance involving Executive Voting and Governance Polling, MKR holders manage the Maker Protocol and the financial risks of Dai to ensure its stability, transparency, and efficiency. MKR voting weight is proportional to the amount of MKR a voter stakes in the voting contract, DSChief. In other words, the more MKR tokens locked in the contract, the greater the voter’s decision-making power.

How to store Maker?

Storing Maker and other digital assets requires a wallet, but don’t worry: Bitvavo’s hosted wallet allows you to store Maker without any technical knowledge. Here is a brief overview of the existing wallet options to store your Maker:

Hosted Wallet

Hosted wallets are wallets where the private keys to your Maker are managed by a third party such as Bitvavo. Access to your account is protected by a password and other advanced security features. Once you are logged in, you can easily and conveniently manage your Maker online. Bitvavo offers standard hosted wallets for all digital assets that are offered on the platform.

Software wallet

A software wallet is a program installed on your computer or other device in order to use and manage your Maker. Using a software wallet gives you full control over your private keys, so you are not dependent on third parties. The risk is that you alone are in charge of the security of your Maker, and if malicious parties have access to your device, your private keys (and therefore your Maker) can be stolen.

Hardware wallet

A hardware wallet is a physical device on which you can store your Maker offline. It is one of the safest ways to store your Maker, because the private keys are stored on a separate and offline device. Access to this device is often protected by a password. In many ways, a hardware wallet can be compared to a safe in which your Maker is stored.

You can use Bitvavo's hosted wallet to easily store, send and receive Maker. Once you have purchased Maker on Bitvavo, you can choose to send your Maker from your Bitvavo wallet to your own software or hardware wallet.
