COTI (COTI) – DJED stablecoin launch
At the end of November at the Cordano Summit, COTI CEO Shahaf Bar-Geffenb announced the launch of an algorithmic, over-collateralized stablecoin, DJED. According to the developers’ plan, the stablecoin will be launched in January after a thorough audit and will be pegged to the US dollar. DJED will be backed by the Cardano base coin (ADA) and use the SHEN coin as a back-up coin.
The DJED algorithm is based on a collateral ratio in the range of 400%-800% for DJED and SHEN to ensure that there is enough ADA in the pool. Agreements have already been signed with 40 partners and decentralized exchanges for fast and correct implementation. These projects will offer increased rewards to those who provide liquidity with DJED.
The developers also announced the development of Djed Pay, a payment app and crypto gateway that allows merchants, e-commerce platforms and non-profit organizations to accept DJED as payment.
