MakerDAO holders voted overwhelmingly in favor of creating a vault for HVBank with a 87.24% yes vote. 

At the launch, the 151-year-old bank will be able to borrow up to $100 million, with that increasing to $1 billion over the course of the next year. 

MakerDAO anticipates that this deal will bridge the gap between DAI and traditional finance and hopefully strengthen DAI’s use. The official proposal stated that the DAI borrowed by HVBank will help support the bank’s operations. It claimed that it would generate a roughly 3% yield for MakerDAO.
