# Contributing to the Use Dai list

Use Dai is a community driven effort! Contributions to the list are welcomed and encouraged from all.

## Guidelines

**To qualify for inclusion on the Use Dai list, a business or service should**:

* Have a recently updated website explaining the nature of its business/service
* Accept the Dai currency for payment in exchange for goods or services rendered, or otherwise allow Dai to be utilized as money, such as for lending or other financial products
* Comply with all laws and statutes of the jurisdiction(s) in which it operates

**Each contribution should**:

* Conform to the following format: `Link - Short description of business or project`, for example:
* [Maker](https://cdp.makerdao.com/) - Provides loans in Dai against collateralized ETH`
* Be **succinct** and **straightforward**. Avoid flowery language or marketing jargon.
* Follow strict alphabetical ordering for sections, sub-sections, and entries
* Include the project under the appropriate section & sub-section, adding them as needed
* Update the table of contents if new a section or subsection was added

### Updating your Pull Request
