How to buy Maker in Canada

Newton makes it fast and easy to buy, sell, and hold Maker (MKR) in Canada.

Maker (MKR) was created by MakerDAO, an Ethereum-backed network that is part of a larger project called the Maker Protocol. The token is one-of-two tokens utilized by the Maker Protocol, and acts as the governance token that powers smart contracts on the network. Staking MKR allows users to vote on proposals and changes to the project.
