What do u mean by local currency stablecoins…? How are they different from $USDT & $,USDD

Also why do u think the stable coins on Trons like $USDD won’t work in onboarding new lads to Tron ecosystem…?

Yes, we are looking at a model where the value of TRX locked into the SC is at least at a ratio 1(Stablecoin):1.2(TRX), additional liquidity needed will be provided by the community locking in value and being rewarded from the trading fees collected on token swaps.

USDD/USDT/USDC are all international tokens and like fiat currencies they do not always serve localized needs. A local currecy pegged stablecoin would make it easier for users that are not familiar with Crypto/Blockchain to be onboarded, by bring the technology/currency to their doorstep by digitally localizing the currency which they use on a daily basis. This also provides an opportunity for intercontinental trade in stablecoins of local denomination.

Nice but how about countries like Nigeria that do not support crypto

Thank you for your support @Brain

Hmm okay…but is this really realistic? :thinking:

Thanks for the question @Ruku, at the moment these stablecoins are merely digital representation of the underlying currency and not sovereign issued currency however, ultimately we would like to position ourselves as a go to provider to assist with the establishment of any CBDC within the African region. There are many challenges that would need to be addressed before this is market ready however we are taking the first step, to increase adoption of crypto and blockchain as a whole.

Thank you for your engagement @Deefort and I understand your scepticism on the topic, what we are trying to do is to create localized solutions to increase awareness and adoption of crypto so that the technology can be accessible and used in the local context. What better way than to bring crypto to our users doorstep with a digital form of the currencies that they already use on a daily basis. By establishing localized stablecoins adopters need not worry of further exchanging of currencies, users can use the stablecoin to by a loaf of bread at the local store because the token is just a dgital representation of the currency with which they already use.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
