The concept of stablecoins is not new (See Vitalik Buterin's blog on 'The Search for a Stable Cryptocurency') and we at Arc Reserve Currency believe that stablecoins have an important role to play in the adoption of cryptocurrency more widely in society and also to help induce stability and confidence in a market that is dominated by 'volatility and speculation'. For a cryptocurrency to act as a meaningful and genuine alternative for national currency in everyday life, it needs to be stable. There are many versions of a stablecoin (programmatic, asset-backed, crypto-backed etc). There are different merits and weaknesses of each approach, as they all strive to be a store of value, unit of measure and a medium of exchange – whilst adhering to the core principals of DLT: trustless-ness, decentralisation, accessible ownership etc. About Arc Reserve Currency (AAA): Arc Reserve Currency (AAA) is a stable coin with the primary purpose of acting as an effective store of value and unit of measure: stable in real terms, appreciating in nominal terms. AAA is backed by a basket of fiat currencies (top 6 traded), allocated into cash and fixed income.
