IOST Blockchain Will Support Stablecoin HUSD to Boom DeFi Ecosystem
China, Beijing, Jan. 13, 2021, IOST is thrilled to announce our plan to support HUSD- a U.S. dollar-pegged stablecoin by Stable Universal Limited. Notably, IOST is the first batch of public blockchains to support HUSD & the second blockchain outside Ethereum to complete the technical deployment of HUSD.
This significant milestone powers IOST towards building influence through our robust and thriving DeFi portfolio.
To celebrate the launch of HUSD, IOST & HUSD team will distribute 35,000 HUSD to our IOST holders, with details to be released soon. Please turn on your notification and watch out for our next announcement!
About HUSD Stablecoin
Issued by the technology firm Stable Universal, HUSD is a safe and secure stablecoin pegged 1:1 to the U.S. dollar. Combining the U.S. dollar's stability with the efficiency of blockchain technology, HUSD offers IOST users access to a safe, secure, and convenient asset for remittance, commerce, payments, trading, and DeFi, and more.
The integration of HUSD on the IOST blockchain is at its last stage of completion. Once deployed, users can register accounts in Stable Universal, deposit US dollars, and obtain HUSD on the IOST chain at a ratio of 1:1 through cross-chain tools. Users will soon be able to withdraw and deposit IRC-21 based HUSD on centralized exchanges.
Terry Wang, CTO & Co-founder of IOST, highlights:
“Stablecoin is a key to unlock a plethora of opportunities in DeFi- IOST’s area of focus & growth in 2020 & this 2021. IOST’s innovative & developer-friendly technology which enables high scalability, fast transaction speed and zero transaction fees make it a perfect choice for both DeFi developers and users. We are thrilled to explore the unlimited opportunities that arisen from this collaboration with stable universal and more partners to continue making IOST a home for DeFi.”
Frank Zhang, CEO of Stable Universal, said:
“It is a great start to the new year to announce that HUSD will be soon be supported in the IOST ecosystem, as greater cross-chain interoperability means better accessibility for users across a wide array of platforms and protocol, designed to meet their trading needs. We look forward to seeing more developers and communities as they continue to explore the use cases for stablecoin and blockchain technology at large.”
HUSD stablecoin will play significant roles in IOST’s DeFi use cases as a payment token, a store of value, and a bridge between fiat currencies and cryptocurrencies. HUSD can help minimize the price volatility often associated with cryptocurrency trading, allow individual users and institutional investors to easily build and transact on IOST blockchain, as well as take part in new liquidity pools for future decentralized exchanges on IOST
