CVP Proposal: QiDao (

What is QiDao?

QiDao is a decentralized collateralized debt position stablecoin protocol where users can deposit tokens as collateral to issue MAI, the protocol’s decentralized stablecoin. QiDao has grown to become one of the largest stablecoin protocols on Polygon, Fantom, Gnosis Chain, Moonbeam, and Moonriver. Mai Finance is a website that connects users to the QiDao Protocol, which is where the vaults are created and stablecoins are minted.

TL;DR: QiDao is a way for you to keep your crypto and still be able to spend its value. That means you’re able to mint stablecoins without having to sell your crypto assets, and do so at 0% interest.

The process is simple: create a vault, deposit your crypto assets, and mint stablecoins against your collateral’s value.

The QiDao community has recently voted to accept METIS as collateral (Snapshot)

Most collateral types are eligible for Qi vault incentives. Vault incentives are rewarded to vaults that have a MAI debt balance and maintain a healthy collateral to debt ratio (CDR). A healthy CDR is defined as 25% to 270% above liquidation ratio.

Every 2 weeks, Qi holders are able to vote on which collateral types will receive 180k Qi/week of vault incentives.

Mai Finance has a full-time team of 6. In addition to the full-time team we have a diverse group of talented community members that complete tasks and bounties to help improve the protocol.


Protocol governance is done through community votes on QiDao Improvement Proposals. Voting power is based on a user’s QiPowah. Any holder of Qi is eligible to vote on proposals. To increase one’s voting power they can boost their QiPOWAH by locking their Qi for up to 4 years.
