What are stablecoins?
Regardless of whether you have entered crypto currency trading or not, you will have heard the word “Bitcoin”, but maybe unfamiliar with what is USDT or a Stablecoin. Though, stablecoins can be regarded as an entry ticket or a shelter to the cryptocurrency world.
In Taiwan, the most common stablecoins are USDT, followed by USDC and BUSD. Because stablecoins are usually linked to fiat currencies, it is the exchange rate pegged to the U.S. dollar maintained at around 1:1, so the price of one stablecoin is usually $1. The reason why stablecoins can be pegged to the US dollar is that stablecoin companies will deposit the corresponding US dollars in their bank accounts to support the cryptocurrency stablecoins they issue. If they issued a million USDC stablecoins, they would deposit a million dollars in their bank accounts, thus backing the actual value of the stablecoins.
When most people first enter the cryptocurrency market, they buy and sell stablecoins (hereinafter referred to as USDT) through exchanges. The exchange is the fastest way to transact USDT in Taiwan. You only need to spend a few minutes downloading the exchange APP, registering an account, passing KYC certification, and then to buy USDT. After purchasing USDT, you can find various currency trading pairs in the interface of the APP. For example, if you want to trade Bitcoin with USDT, you can choose the BTC/USDT trading pair, and successfully use USDT to buy Bitcoin with a simple transaction.
Stablecoin Currency Shelter
As a “wind shelter” in the virtual currency world, USDT’s value is very stable, and the value of each USDT is mainly maintained at 1 US dollar. Compared with Bitcoin, a crypto currency that fluctuates by 5-10% or more every day, the value of USDT is indeed very stable. Therefore, the purpose of stablecoins is to effectively hedge against risks by forming trading pairs with other currencies and USDT when the market environment deteriorates.
