Cryptocurrencies are unregulated in the UK. Cryptocurrency profits may be subject to Capital Gains Tax. The value of investments is variable and can go down as well as up.
Maker (MKR) is the governance token that powers Maker DAO (decentralised autonomous organisation) – the protocol underpinning the DAI stablecoin.
In addition to granting holders the right to vote on changes to the DAI protocol, MKR is also used to pay transaction fees and as part of the DAI rebalancing process (i.e. the process that keeps the value of each DAI at US$1). New MKR is created when the value of the tokens stabilising the DAI goes up, and is destroyed when the value goes down.

Like all investments, cryptoassets carry risk. Due to the potential volatility of the cryptoasset markets, the value of your investments may fall significantly and lead to total loss. Cryptoassets are complex and are unregulated in the UK, and you are unable to access the Financial Service Compensation Scheme or the Financial Ombudsman Service. We use third party banking, safekeeping and payment providers, and the failure of any of these providers could also lead to a loss of your assets. We recommend you obtain financial advice before making a decision to use your credit card to purchase cryptoassets or to invest in cryptoassets. Capital Gains Tax may be payable on profits.
