According to the organization, among the most important stablecoins are USDT and DAI. In that context, they detailed: „The first one was created by the company Tether in 2015, with a 1:1 parity with respect to the dollar. DAI was launched by MakerDao, a Decentralized Autonomous Organization in 2017. It also has a 1:1 parity with the dollar, but unlike USDT, it can be generated by its users through crypto-collateralized loans. But there are many more, such as USDC, GUSD, PAX or DOC.
They also clarified that there are already stablecoins backed by the euro, such as EURS, issued by the company Stasis, but indicated that it is hardly used, despite the fact that the American and European money supply is very similar.
„Thanks to the support of RSK and Money on Chain, the creators of the crypto stable currency to the dollar with Bitcoin collateral (the DOC), DeFi Lab is conducting research on the interest of the crypto community in a stable currency to the euro, this research is composed of different workshops and events to discuss this issue, publications to open debate in the community and a battery of forms to ask the community,“ they said.
Those interested in participating in this evaluation to see the interest in a crypt coin anchored to the euro with Bitcoin collateral, can enter a form and answer some questions.
