What is a stablecoin?

It is a cryptoasset whose price is subject to the price of another asset, which in the case of USDT and USDC is the US dollar. Hence its name, which in English means “stablecoin”. The stablecoins have almost zero volatility, so they are widely used by crypto investors to locate their resources when they do not have open investment positions or simply to have their resources safe with the benefits that cryptoassets have.

The launch of USDC obeys the requirements of many users who ask us for options to safeguard the value of their assets, given the strong devaluation of their local currency, so from now on they already have the 2 main stablecoins in the market to do so”
