The emergence of Stablecoins
The volatility of the crypto market is no secret and it is, in fact, one of the main holdups for investors while considering entering the ecosystem. With this volatility not ceasing or flying anytime soon, a Fiat-backed stablecoins offers a relatively risk-free environment, wherein the investor can jump in and out of the market at will.
Hedging against the drawbacks of traditional cryptocurrencies Stablecoins, essentially enhances the transaction cycle by expediting the conversion of unstable currencies to stable ones or otherwise instantaneously. Which is why Stablecoins have started to gain ground, albeit slowly and steadily.
There are two operational models for stablecoins – the first one being algorithmic. Here, stablecoins were both generated and marketed based on an algorithm that attempted to artificially keep the coin at a given value – in much the same way that central banks often do to keep fiat currency values at certain prices.
However, the algorithmically based stablecoins does not have any backup whatsoever and could subsequently lose its intended ‘stability’ tumbling into worthlessness overnight, either by a market shift or an algorithm error.
The second type of cryptocurrency is actually with backups. The said backups are kept by the companies issuing them and can be either in other fiat currencies or in properties with assured values. Given the inherent backing of the coin with a tangible asset, an intense tumbling could not be a fear as there is actual money behind it, and stablecoins are issued and operational based on the interplay of demand and supply.
