1⃣ USD Coin 1⃣

USDC is one of the largest stablecoins in regards to market capitalization. You’ll usually find it hovering around the top 30 of all coins on CMC.

The coin has seen significant growth since launching in 2018. It was launched by the Centre Consortium, a collaboration of Circle Internet Financial and Coinbase.

USD Coin is backed by a 1:1 fiat currency reserve, which is regularly audited to confirm that proper reserves are available in the appropriate escrow accounts.

USD Coin is an ERC-20 token on Ethereum’s blockchain. As a result, the tokens are easily integrated with Smart Contracts, which lends itself well to lending, investing, payments, and trading.

It’s centrally controlled. You have to place your trust with Circle and Coinbase, which some people are hesitant to do.

2⃣ Paxos PAX 2⃣

Paxos started out as an exchange in 2012, but moved toward offering crypto services and products in 2015. A few years later, in September of 2018, PAX coin launched.

PAX has a regular audit to ensure that the company has a reserve balance that lines up with the number of PAX coins in circulation.

PAX typically resides comfortably within the top 50 of all cryptocurrencies based on market capitalization, and is usually one of the top five stablecoins on the market.

PAX was also issued on the Ethereum blockchain which means that it is an ERC20 token.

3⃣ MakerDAO DAI 3⃣

DAI is not issued by any centralized authority, and the project does not have control over the coin. DAI does not use fiat currency to back it. The stablecoin uses smart contracts, which are backed by collateralized crypto debt.

DAI is created when a Collateralized Debt Position is created, which locks Ethereum into a smart contract. The contract holds the staked coins, creates DAI, which can then be unlocked at a later time using DAI.

DAI was built by the MakerDAO development team on the Ethereum blockchain. As a result, the stablecoin is secure, verifiable, and most of all, decentralized.

4⃣ TrueUSD 4⃣

TrueUSD maintains a 1:1 ratio of its digital coins to the fiat currency it holds in reserve.

TrueUSD also offers complete disclosure regarding how much USD it holds in its reserves.

TrustToken partners with many banks and accounting companies. These partnerships often require third-party auditors to confirm balances, which the company releases to its users.

You’ll typically find TrueUSD in the top fifty of all cryptocurrencies in regards to market capitalizaiton

TrustToken also offers TrueGBP, TrueCAD,TrueHKD and TrueAUD.

It’s also an ERC20 token so you will find it just as easy to send or store as the others we have mentioned.

5⃣ Tether USDT 5⃣

Tether was one of the first stablecoins and remains one of the most popular. It’s usually in the top 5 in terms of market cap and has extensive market liquidity.

Tether is also quite a controversial coin as there have been many who have questioned whether it is fully fiat backed. There are also concerns that Bitfinex may be tied to it.

Despite some trying times in 2017 and 2018, it has always managed to bounce back to the dollar peg.
