Rai Reflex Index
B+
  • RAI is an experimental decentralized stablecoin with a floating price. Unlike most stablecoins, RAI is not pegged to a fiat currency.

  • The protocol is forked from MakerDAO's DAI and is substantially similar, except for 2 innovations: (a) a free-floating price and (b) the use of positive and negative interest rates to influence the market price of RAI.

  • RAI is solely backed by ETH collateral. Its current Collateralization Ratio is over 350%.

  • Despite its experimental nature, RAI has proven to be a reliable low-volatility alternative to conventional stablecoins. RAI is ideal for sophisticated users who want a decentralized, censorship resistant stablecoin and can understand its intricacies.

RAI's rating can be upgraded from B+ to A- by:

  • allowing direct redemption (primary liquidity) of RAI for ETH collateral.
