How does the Boost feature work?

Written by Nikola Jankovic

The Boost feature allows you to increase the amount of ETH collateral in your CDP at the cost of lowering your CDP’s ratio, by generating additional DAI that are then converted into ETH and added to the CDP, all within a single transaction. The only cost of performing Boost for the user is the transaction fees.


Boosting can be very useful when Ether is moving up in value and your increased CDP ratio allows you to increase your ETH exposure.
