Final Phase of “Endgame” Announced
MakerDAO is reaching the culmination of its ambitious “Endgame” plan, aimed at establishing a series of independent subDAOs within its broader ecosystem.
In a recent announcement by MakerDAO co-founder Rune Christensen, it was revealed that the final stage of “Endgame” will involve a comprehensive reimplementation of the entire Maker Protocol, constructed natively on a newly independent blockchain named NewChain.
Christensen took to X (formerly Twitter) to share the news, stating, “The last phase of Endgame is the launch of a native blockchain for Maker with the codename NewChain. It will make the ecosystem more secure and efficient.”
MakerDAO’s Endgame Strategy
“Endgame” represents MakerDAO’s strategic vision to create an emergent and community-driven ecosystem characterized by robust growth and innovation. One of the primary objectives of this strategy is to expand the supply of dai, an Ethereum-based stablecoin.
MakerDAO has set an ambitious short-term goal for “Endgame,” aiming to increase the dai supply to over $100 billion within three years. Currently, according to data from The Block Research, dai’s supply and market capitalization are significantly below this target, standing at $3.9 billion.
Phases of the Endgame Plan
The initial phase of the five-stage “Endgame” plan is scheduled to commence early next year with a “beta launch.” This launch will concentrate on introducing a new unified brand for the ecosystem.
Earlier this year, MakerDAO adopted a constitution that introduced “Endgame.” This plan offers guidance on various platform-related functions, including overall stability, decentralization, risk management, frontend governance, voter committees, delegates, and more.
Solana Codebase Preferred
In addition to unveiling the final phase of “Endgame,” Christensen expressed a strong preference for the Solana codebase as the foundation for NewChain. He shared more insights about this choice in a detailed post.
Christensen explained, “After researching various options for the foundation of NewChain, I firmly believe that the Solana stack holds the most promise as a codebase to explore further.”
