The fate of stablecoins is the fate of the entire crypto complex. This follows not only in size but also in the vital fluid they play.
The crypto market has moved closer to its own dollar to address the technical and legal implications of transactions between crypto and real dollars. These serve as a vehicle currency in the crypto business, providing critical liquidity and deposit services. The major currencies, bitcoin and ether, are likely to be much cheaper in the trading environment. When the big stable coin fights for his life, it is not too late to look back and consider what is at stake.
From joy to anxiety. . .
In early November, when it was valued at $ 3 tn, Crypto Mania was delighted with the moon. Mania, who has been working extensively on legal land, has encouraged market players to create their own money and build their own lending and utility structures.
In the months leading up to the price of cryptocurrency, the cryptocurrency went from joy to anxiety. Anxiety is also known as Will e Coyote Moment, when the cartoon character runs off a cliff and falls down until he looks down at Warner Brothers physics. Anxiety is a disorder that is affecting more and more people.
Non-HODL cryptocurrencies have taken steps to lower crypto prices. However, stable coins continue to grow not only in value but also in value. A.D. In October 2021, it was valued at $ 127 billion, more than half of which was by market leader Tater.
Although there are many stable currencies, the top four – tether (USDT), USDC, BUSD and terra (UST) – account for 90 percent of the market. Their shares are 46, 24, 10 and 10 respectively.
Part of the property reached a total value of $ 180 bn at the end of February. Last week’s anxiety continued to hit that level until May. Looking back, the strange thing is that Willy E. Koyot style is how stable coins continue.
What was the order of the game? A.D. 1992 exchange rate test mechanization from small to medium. The Finnish mark was chosen first, then the Lira and the pound, and finally the French Franc. Similarly, the first stable coin in the view was on the edge.
Terra had three beats on it: size, algorithm construction and high interest rates. On average, UST growth last month saw a run-off before BUSD.
Many readers now know the difference between an algorithm and a supported coin, although the difference is still worth noting. The latter (or who claims to be) is an uncontrolled currency market fund. Its counterfeit dollars are backed by cash. Long-standing unforeseen circumstances raise questions about how stable the price of Tetter is.
Terra, an algorithm for stable coins, says he is better off without such a foothold in traditional finance. After all, a government can take these assets or make it harder for traders to buy and sell. Stable Terra finds stability from a pre-designed transaction with the floating token Luna. If Terra falls below the standard, a trader can buy a one-pound luna regardless of the value of the luna, which he can use at a discount. After selling Luna, the merchant puts the offer in his pocket.
But equal support for Terra is based on the expansion of Luna’s supply chain, so the declining demand has pushed the price gap down and the proven mediation has turned into a bankruptcy.
The demand for UST was the third strike. The terra-luna setup includes an anchor (why not Acme, Wile E Coyote smart device messaging source?) Protocol pays 19% API. So put your hand in your pocket when someone says you get 19 percent of the product and a stable price in dollars.
In addition to being clearly unsustainable, this size has attracted the largest UST to a single location. Anchor had a UST 14bn record (out of $ 18 billion) on Friday, but on Monday 9 billion UST and 2.6 billion per pixel. The general clarity of the deposit can only be understood if coordination between the depositors is required. High exchange rates sent lower UST prices, indicating that Bots would take Luna.
Similarity is part of the good financial engineering of the 1980s. The coupon on these bonds had to be restarted from time to time to bring the guarantees into equity. Once RJR Nabisco’s finances are strained, the interest rate equalizing the bond goes bankrupt. Only KKR kept the company’s finances afloat to bring new equity to the deal.
USC’s Willy Decentralized developers have already purchased Bitcoin to support it and have begun testing their creations. So far, speculation that some $ 3.5bn worth of bitcoin has been used to protect UST has helped reassure bitcoin owners rather than expand UST.
. . . To panic and stumble?
It is worth noting that, as some have done earlier this week, stable coins are different in value. There is no doubt that coins, like algorithms, are not inherently stable. However, the route from UST to USDT was as short as D. Anxiety is when some people show up and act on the difference between cash and real things. Edge calls can trigger this process.
The USDT is not uncontrolled. A.D. In 2008, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) ruled that the Securities and Exchange Commission was not a guarantee of disbursement. And March 2020 shows that races can earn money without breaking the bank. If you are a bank with a stable coin capital, Paul Volker should have given similar advice to the monetary fund in the late 1970s.
Instead, Tater is “a company that seems to be isolated from the Red Flags.” Of Work week The story of last October’s cover read again. Anger welcomes the first round of Theater, which was released last May.
The obligations and nature of commercial paper holdings reported on Tetter vary. Is it a paper issued by troubled Chinese real estate developers? Is IOU supported by cryptocurrencies? (How could those marginal calls be going?) Or worse? Melanj may look to the Leman brothers’ bankruptcy, which he broke into in September 2008 with the Prime Reserve Fund, as strong. If we are witnessing torschlusspanikThe strange thing is how long it took.
Stable coin crypto vehicle
Looks like a stable coin side view. By the end of October 2021, their market capitalization was less than 3% of the crypto market. The starting point has increased, but it is still not large.
However, the liquidity of trading and thus the crypto market depends on stablecoins. Decentralized finance, in particular, works on statscoins. Tet 80 billion-plus market capitalization is now about one-tenth of the combined market capitalization of bitcoin and ether, but the measured daily trading volume is higher than their combined trade.
Bitcoin trading takes place in initial transactions where Tetter serves as a margin and settlement currency. The dollar is traded with the euro, the bitcoin trade is traded with Tater. In Binance Exchange, the price of perpetual spare contracts, including Bitcoin and Tetter, drives Bitcoin prices in US dollars and further affects crypto prices.
It is not clear how the crypto complex works without a tester or at least a stable coin. A.D. Just as the “dollar deficit” at the end of 2008 affected the overall foreign exchange market, the problems with the currency were affecting the overall flow of the crypto complex. Less liquid assets are less expensive. And if a popular stable coin is worthless on anyone’s spreadsheet, it indicates that another crypto might go to zero.
