GUSD vs USDT - new Gemini dollar offers stablecoin linked to US Dollar

2 posts in this topic

The Gemini exchange has just launched a new stablecoin (GUSD) that promises to provide some competition for Tether (USDT). According to the official blog post:


Enter the Gemini dollar — a stable value coin (often called a “stablecoin”) that is (i) issued by Gemini, a New York trust company, (ii) strictly pegged 1:1 to the U.S. dollar, and (iii) built on the Ethereum network according to the ERC20 standard for tokens. The Gemini dollar (ticker symbol: GUSD) combines the creditworthiness and price stability of the U.S. dollar with blockchain technology and the oversight of U.S. regulators...

In addition, the company promises a strong auditing program:


The U.S dollars that correspond to the Gemini dollars issued and in circulation will be held at a bank located in the United States and eligible for FDIC “pass-through” deposit insurance, subject to applicable limitations. In addition, the U.S dollar deposit balance will be examined monthly by an independent registered public accounting firm to verify the 1:1 peg.

This will set them apart from Tether, who have had many controversies recently regarding their auditing practices.

      The Republic of the Marshall Islands is planning a national cryptocurrency named 'The Sovereign', to be released later this year. The Marshall Islands currently uses the US Dollar as their national currency, but the parliament just recently voted to introduce this new cryptocurrency (SOV) as legal tender in the country.
      As described in the SOV media kit:
      This comes at the same time as Venezuela just launched their own currency, the Petro.
      More and more countries are now adopting or considering cryptocurrencies as legal tender, which further legitimizes the role of currencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum in the global economy.

      TechCrunch recently reported on the detailed plans for Telegram's multi-billion dollar ICO that's planned for 2018. Now Cryptovest and The Next Web have obtained a leaked copy of the complete whitepaper for the Telegram ICO, with lots of juicy details.
      Telegram has high-reaching goals for their new cryptocurrency and Telegram Open Network (TON) blockchain:
      Interestingly they have chosen to not only create a single blockchain, but will use "a scalable and flexible blockchain architecture that consists of a master chain and up to 2^92 accompanying blockchains". This allows a number of advantages over single-blockchain approaches, especially regarding scalability.
      TON will also offer a variety of different services, including TON Storage, TON Proxy, TON Services (smart contracts), TON DNS, and TON Payments. All of these services will be integrated into the Telegram messenger application to avoid needing to download a separate wallet client.
      What do you think of the new Telegram ICO? Will you be buying in when the initial offering goes on sale, to fund the development of this broad-reaching blockchain platform?
