Ride or Dai: How Stablecoins Affect Volatility
Stablecoins were the initial focus of the event, kicking off a busy schedule. Industry specialists debated the definition and ramifications of Stablecoins, touching on several key points. According to Ido Sadeh Man, Founder of Saga Foundation offered the bluntest assessment.
“Stablecoins are not currencies nor does it have a monetary essence and this is by design – they are just renouncing all other functions in favor of stability,” he noted.
This paved the way for a pivot into Libra as well. According to Mr. Man, “Libra is not a Stablecoin, Facebook would benefit a lot from us thinking it was a Stablecoin however. From a monetary perspective, Libra makes sense, however, I am afraid we may see that the current governance mechanism of Libra may lead to unification, not fragmentation.”
