Crypto-backed stablecoins is that they are over-guaranteed. It means that for every Dollar in circulation of a stablecoin of this type, there is more than 1 Dollar that supports it. For example, DAI currently has $ 3.80 in support for each DAI in circulation. This type of structure is necessary to keep the stablecoin stable given the fluctuations in the market value and provides a form of immediate audit by the user, since they can know the system's support at all times.
Fiat Money Guarantee: These are backed by fiat money and is one of the most common forms of stablecoin. In simple terms, it is in a way a digital form of fiat money, what happens in this form of stablecoin is that these coins have the same value as the currency that supports it.
Stablecoins are stablecoins, they have a perhaps too graphic name, given the history of volatility in the crypto world. They differ from other currencies by the relatively stable price. Most, following the value of the US dollar. There are some differences within the world of stablecoins and that is how they capture the value for which they are stable.
The greatest interest in cryptocurrencies is in countries where central bank money has collapsed or lost legitimacy, which is why citizens have realized that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies represent an alternative to the current system.
From a financial point of view, Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and DeFi (decentralized finance) allow access to financial products that were previously only available to a limited group of people. Today, anyone in the world, without having to register with a financial institution, can transfer value online, make leveraged trading and / or request a loan with collateral, all without leaving their home.
With Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and DeFi, you can structure financial transactions that were previously impossible, even by turning to trusted third parties who are experts in financial transactions.
While a few years ago being able to store and transfer value online without having to trust a third party was unthinkable
MakerDAO is the decentralized financial protocol that the stablecoin Dai (DAI) generates.
DAIs are created when a user deposits Ethereum (ETH), Basic Attention Token (BAT), USD Coin, (USDC), or Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) in a Maker smart contract.
The deposited funds are placed in a secured debt position called a "vault," with a sum of DAI equal to that of the deposited crypto assets minus a maintenance margin that is created. Users can earn interest or lend funds from their Vault.
Collateralized cryptocurrencies are only accessible after the corresponding Dai are redeemed and destroyed, and can be auctioned to recapitalize the Maker system in case their value falls below that of the outstanding loan.
“MakerDAO is a very important project for DeFi: it is not only a critical piece of Lego, but it is also a model of how organizations based on DeFi DAO can operate. We are all going to learn a lot about how all of this will unfold. ”
Regardless of the new restrictions of the Argentine government, Companies that want to access foreign currency and citizens who want to save, but who do not trust the Argentine peso, and still have more and more obstacles. "Since Monday of last week, in Qubit you can buy dollars with pesos, sell dollars for pesos and buy DAI with dollars"
"Given the new government restrictions for operations in dollars, from qubit.com. ar they decided to launch operations in USD so that their users can buy dollars through operations in cryptocurrencies",
"Since Monday of last week, in Qubit you can buy dollars with pesos, sell dollars for pesos and buy DAI with dollars"
It should also be noted that users can also buy DAI, a decentralized stablecoin that has the approximate value of one dollar. "In this way, users can protect their savings in dollars by buying DAI, which being a cryptocurrency is out of banks and nobody can take it away or freeze it. DAI is a very interesting currency for Argentina given that on the one hand it is anti-inflationary, since it is worth a dollar and on the other, it is anti-corralitos and anti-expropriations ”, highlighted the Operations Manager of the firm of Qubit Borkers
For MakerDAO's Latin America Marketing Leader, people will try to find an option and notice the advantages of acquiring DAI in devalued countries, they think DAI is excellent in that case.
“The issue of Argentina and the dollar is a news story every week. And we are seeing that the crypto issue also entered the radar of the Argentine Government, the Central Bank and the regulatory entities, "said Di Pietrantonio. "But still nothing is very clear yet," he added.
I frame the great advantages of stablecoins for users. "The advantages of a stabecoin like DAI, is that they can protect it as paper money, but with the security that they do not have it hanging around the house, or 'under the mattress' as it is commonly said. It is also an advantage for sending money between family members. This is very simple with cryptocurrencies. It is practically instantaneous, anywhere in the world. You don't have to wait and you don't have to trust a third party ”.
"Later, what we are experiencing day by day with the devaluation of the currency, accelerated by the pandemic and the quarantine in which we are submerged, means that there is no real value of the dollar, in terms of Argentine pesos," he emphasized.
I add that the devaluation scenarios are not something exclusive to Argentina: “We are seeing that in other Latin American countries there is also devaluation. Not at the rate of Argentina, but it is happening. We can see it in Brazil, Colombia, Chile or Mexico, which are also important markets worldwide. We are going to see how stablecoins are an excellent form of protection in this scenario ”.
Referring to the total capitalization of stablecoins worldwide
“There is also something fundamental. In my opinion, the land that cryptos gain is a land that will not be given up later. He who already knows how to buy, send and save with stablecoin, already knows how to have his own receipt, and that is marked by fire ”.
this was his answer about the potential of stablecoins and the great possibility that it gives the citizen of being a way to escape harmful monetary policies
"I see a lot of potential, not only for Argentina, but for all those countries where citizens have to endure countless economic swings that take their toll on the possibilities of progress and more basic goals, such as food, education or health. Cryptocurrencies like DAI give citizens the possibility of being an escape route from harmful national monetary policies that only threaten the financial capacity of the people. Imagine if someone, every time he collects his salary in fiat currency, passes it 100 percent to DAI and sells as he needs to spend. In this way people can stand at a stable value and not be afraid of an unexpected devaluation. That is the option that we give people today. ”

And fast And they are rapidly being adopted by central banks in different countries of the world. "
referring to latin america
