Cake Group Commits 20 Million $DFI to Support DeFiChain's DUSD Repeg Mission

The Cake Group Board has unanimously decided to support the DeFiChain community's repeg mission by purchasing $DUSD with 20 million $DFI, to be executed in the coming days. This $DFI, part of the Group's 2023 revenue which was not sold for BTC or USD, will be used to bolster community efforts.

Cake Group has secured 1,664 dBTC (~$70M value) over two years by substituting customer BTC conversions on Bake with profits, showcasing their dedication to the community. Deposited funds are 1:1 backed, verifiable on our Proof of Reserves page, but we're not liable for externally wrapped DeFiChain coins.
