Next Steps

Once your wallet is ready with DAI or collateral, head on over to our homepage to get started.

After connecting the wallet, you’ll have the option to create, match and monitor new agreements.

Agreement Initiation

Once your wallet has collateral loaded, head on over to our homepage to get started.
After connecting with your noncustodial wallet, you’ll have the option to create, match and monitor new agreements.

  1. Input the amount of capital and type of asset (ETH, BAT, etc.) you wish to post as collateral. 

  2. State your desired FRA rate and the amount you wish to withdraw from the Maker Vault relative to the amount of collateral being posted.

  3. Akiva Capital Holdings reviews this request and, upon approval, leverages smart contracts to open a unique Maker Vault tied to your address.

  4. Check your new agreements can now be seen as “Open”, allowing lenders to signal their interest to supply Dai by “Matching” that agreement. 

  5. Upon matching, the lender transfers Dai from their contract into the DSR contract.

 

Life of the Agreement

  1. Post matching, Dai accrues interest thanks to the Dai Savings Rate

  2. Debt is monitored daily, effectively reviewing the DSR relative to the predefined FRA; more frequently at times of high volatility. 

  3. Akiva monitors delta to be paid upon expiry.

  4. Users keep track of their Vault through an intuitive interface, effectively serving as a reminder to to further collateralize the loan and prevent liquidation in times of need.

 

Settlement

  1. Capital aggregated through the agreement is distributed relative to the debt and interest accrued by either party.

  2. Dai is withdrawn by lenders from the agreement contract account. 

  3. In the event that additional capital is owed by the borrower at expiry, Akiva will seek to draw Dai from the borrower’s wallet. 

  4. In a situation where no additional Dai can be drawn from the borrower’s wallet, the collateral in the Vault is liquidated in exchange for Dai and used to settle the debt to the lender. 

  5. Any excess collateral is then returned to the borrower.
