October 24, 2019 Anchorage launches on-chain governance platform for Maker tokens.

The platform is intended to increase voter turnout, and does not make use of proxy smart contracts, hot wallets, or cold storage keys, methods employed by rival platforms that Anchorage sees as exposing clients to risk. Anchorage is an institutional cryptocurrency custody provider. Its clients include investment firms such as a16z, Polychain, and Paradigm, who may now begin voting on DAI governance decisions. Anchorage plans to support further tokens with on-chain governance features.
