The PolkaCash Difference

Taxonomy Of The Main Stablecoin Types

Why are Stablecoins in demand? What are the use cases?

  1. As a means of exchange - This is the primary purpose of stablecoins and it is central to cryptocurrency adoption, as it solves the issue of volatility.
  2. As a Unit of account - Since stablecoins are pegged to fiat, pricing can be done in stablecoins, and overtime, they could become a recognizable unit of account globally.
  3. Store of Value - Since they are not volatile, stablecoins are fast becoming a popular store of value. They are likely to become even more popular for this reason, considering the negative interest that could be accrued to bank depositors.
  4. Remittances - Cryptocurrencies have been hailed as a fast and cheap means of remitting funds, with the major downside to their use being their volatility. Efficient stablecoins solve this problem.
  5. Lending and derivatives - Stablecoins allow you to hedge against the risk of volatility and nullify the need for centralized players existing on the CME and CBOE
  6. Decentralized applications (dApps) - For businesses that run on smart contracts, stablecoins ensure that operation costs are predictable and infrastructure management is easier.
  7. Performance management - By removing volatility, stablecoins make it possible for analysts to accurately evaluate and compare projects.
