What is Maker?
Maker (MKR) is an Ethereum based decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO) that backs, governs and ultimately stabilises the value of the networks stablecoin Dai. Holders of the Maker token can govern the system by voting on various risk parameters relating to the network and the stablecoin Dai, which is pegged to USD.
New Zealand's trusted crypto exchange
As someone who has integrated to over 20 crypto exchanges via their APIs, I can say Independent Reserve has the best API documentation by far.
Their customer support is also excellent which is something most exchanges sadly lack these days.
I organise and host blockchain meetups and conferences and am always hearing very positive things when it comes to Independent Reserve which is why I always recommend them.
They are by far the most trusted exchange in Australia for consumer trading as well as institutional investment, and offer a great 'open order book' unlike most other Australia exchanges.
I find Independent Reserve to be one of the easiest, smoothest cryptocurrency exchanges that I use.
The client onboarding process was simple, it is easy to deposit funds and I particularly like the transparency of market depth and speed of execution.
