Research Report: CBDCs and Stablecoins

Since the Global Financial Crisis, rates have been held historically at ultra low rates. We’ve seen Zero Interest Rate Policies (ZIRP) and Negative Interest Rate Policies (NIRP) implemented by many countries globally, basically making money “free.” 

Today, depreciation and inflation have become far worse than ever before, given the current state of lockdowns, covid-relief, and helicopter money. 

At the same time, stablecoin transaction volume took off in 2020 versus 2019, clearing $1 trillion – a 400% increase on the $140 billion transaction volume of 2019. To top that off, daily on-chain transactions increased four-fold from the beginning to the end of 2020.

We believe stablecoins are here to stay, as they offer people a way to anchor their money to a fixed point in the cryptocurrency realm without having to do a hedge.

Inside our latest report, we discuss the evolving landscape for stablecoins and CBDCs inside our newest report. It’s 11 pages of well-sourced research that is exclusive to GDA readers.
