That was a surprisingly profitable investment for someone in only one year. The first months of 2018 were even better for Maker owners because its price mounted up to $1,369.99, which was again a record for this token. But it didn’t last long, and the MKR price dropped and ended the year at $449. 2019 and 2020 passed with almost stable prices between $500-$700. MKR again surprised the market in 2021 and reached its highest price of $4,341 in April.
