Continuing with our video series, we sat down with Doo Wan Nam from MakerDAO to discuss how Origin uses the Dai stablecoin to allow buyers and sellers to transact on the Origin marketplace without worrying about price volatility. Doo is in charge of Asia Partnerships and is the Korea Lead for MakerDAO.

We launched our support for the Dai stablecoin in April of this year. Since then, hundreds of sellers have taken advantage of the ability to sell their goods and services without having to speculate how Ethereum’s price might change in the comings days or months. The ability to accept Dai has proven to be particularly valuable for listings that are delivered long after the initial booking (ex. home shares) as well as goods that have a clear fiat denominated value (ex. gift cards).

We’re happy to be working with the MakerDAO team. Thanks Doo for your support!
