Stablecoins Explained

A stablecoin is a type of cryptocurrency designed to maintain a stable value, usually pegged to real-world assets such as the US Dollar, gold, or other commodities.
There are generally four types of stablecoins:
  • Fiat-backed Stablecoins: Pegged and backed by fiat currency held in a bank.
  • Commodity-backed Stablecoins: Tied to the value of physical commodities like gold or silver.
  • Crypto-backed Stablecoins: Pegged to the value of other cryptocurrencies, often maintained through smart contracts.
  • Algorithmic Stablecoins: These stablecoins use algorithms and smart contracts to automatically adjust their supply based on demand.

Bitcoin-Backed Stablecoins

Typically, a Bitcoin-backed stablecoin is a stablecoin designed to uphold a consistent value pegged to a fiat currency, such as the US Dollar, through a reserve of BTC held as collateral. Prominent examples of such stablecoins include the Sovryn Dollar (DLLR) and Dollar on Chain (DoC).
Some advantages of Bitcoin-backed Stablecoins include:
  • Decentralization: The rules of Bitcoin-backed stablecoins are enforced by smart contracts on a blockchain, eliminating the need for a central authority and making the system resilient and less susceptible to corruption.
  • Permissionless Access: Bitcoin-backed stablecoins are available to anyone with an internet connection, providing financial tools to a global audience, including the unbanked or underbanked.
  • Fast and Efficient Transactions: Bitcoin-backed stablecoins make it easy to send digital dollars across the world in seconds, often with low transaction fees, enabling cost-effective cross-border transactions.
