In the aftermath, holders of the MKR token which permits holders to participate in governance decisions opted to originate a pair of issues, alongside with alongside with the centralized stablecoin USDC to the list of acceptable collateral, which drew each condemnations largely around centralized chance being added to the machine and praise for making the machine more sturdy in opposition to unexpected ETH collateral brand crashes.

And now most currently, the Maker Basis which had held some centralized alter over the protocol finished their lengthy-planned exit with all authorities now transferred to the holders of MKR tokens, eradicating each some extent of alter which had been susceptible as a security test and some extent of chance in that centralized alter may perhaps well even be co-opted and susceptible to disrupt a machine as we have viewed in other examples.
