On Thursday, Maker Foundation announced that it has been successful in gaining a significant amount of capital from two venture capital firms. According to Maker Foundation, it has recently raised an amount of $27.5 million from a direct sale through 5.5% of MKR total supply to Paradigm and Dragonfly Capital Partners. As a result, Maker Foundation has reached a net worth of $500 million through this capital. This capital will be expanding into Asian markets in the future. Also, both Paradigm and Dragonfly Partners will engage themselves in the on-chain governance of the decentralized organization.

A partner at Paradigm, Charlie Noyes, stated that MakerDAO is a platform that signifies assurance of decentralized finance. The mechanism will enable global and permissionless access to credit. The news came just after the Maker Foundation released its much-awaited, multi-collateral Dai (DAI) stablecoin, in coordination with Basic Attention Token (BAT) and Ethereum (ETH).
