MakerDAO passes proposal for $750M increase in US Treasury investments By Cointelegraph

SHIB Adoption Increases After Reaching the Philippines and Mexico

Lending protocol and stablecoin issuer MakerDAO passed a proposal on March 16 to increase its portfolio holdings of United States Treasury bonds by 150%, from $500 million to $1.25 billion.

The proposal aims to increase the protocol’s exposure to real-world assets and “high-quality bonds,” following its Dai (DAI) stablecoin losing its $1 peg during market volatility on March 11. The $750 million debt ceiling hike was approved by 77% of Maker’s delegates. A representative of MakerDAO told Cointelegraph:
