To minimize fee expenses, on Minter wrapped tokens are released in packets (they won’t exactly be 1:1 accurate with the supplying coins on Ethereum). But only the 100% supplied amount will be allowed to roam on Minter, the rest will be on the hot wallet and the cold wallet, which are controlled with multisigs.
It doesn’t affect security and reliability, since minting and burning wrapped tokens on Ethereum is also managed by multisigs and they can be minted or burned at any moment upon reaching a required amount of votes. In this case Minter has an advantage over Ethereum as it doesn’t spend any money at all on fees.
The first packet of DAIE on Minter consists of 10 000 000 000 DAIE.
At the moment of writing the cold wallet has 9 999 000 000 DAIE.
Meanwhile the hot wallet has 999 577.89 DAIE
That means the amount of DAIE roaming on Minter is:
10 000 000 000 - 9 999 000 000 - 999 577.89 = 422.11 DAIE (rounded down to 2 characters after the period)
