While stablecoins are actually a security token, they additionally are pegged/balanced out to the US Dollar, implying that dealers can settle the exchanges made in cryptos on the backend in these stablecoins and do without the implicit expenses of getting to fiat, and time their moves with more exactness. A trader holding a lot of USDC on the BitPay stage today, for example, may simply ahead and purchase the now-less expensive Bitcoin.
