Cardano has more decentralized applications and projects joining its blockchain network. MELD – a DeFi protocol that allows users to lend, borrow and stake capital on Cardano – is preparing to launch a gold-backed stablecoin network on the network.
Arrival of gold-backed stablecoin to further increase demand and utility of native asset ADA
ADA’s rise to the top five cryptocurrencies by market capitalization is likely triggered by the increase in the decentralized applications joining Cardano’s network.
COTI, a decentralized payment platform that acts as a payment gateway of Cardano, revealed the launch of Djed, an algorithmic stablecoin. Now a gold-backed stablecoin is arriving on the network.
A Cardano-based protocol MELD has announced plans to launch the stablecoin as the first step to democratize cryptocurrencies and make them further accessible.
Ken Olling, co-founder and chairman of MELD, states that the “goal here is simplicity and clarity. Gold will be stored in a vault, tokenized and then fractionalized and divided so we can sell it.”
David Taylor, head of marketing at Cardano Foundation, shared the announcement on Twitter
