Coinsquare Launches Canadian Dollar-Backed Stablecoin

Canadian Dollar-Backed Stablecoin

Coinsquare will be launching a stablecoin backed by the Canadian dollar named eCAD.

The new coin will purportedly be backed at a 1:1 ratio with Canadian dollars. Coinsquare which is one of Canada’s top crypto exchanges states that the new coin will be a reliable and stable store of value that provides investors with an alternative to similar coins backed by the United States dollar. CEO of Coinsquare, Cole Diamond said:

“The launch of eCAD will create the first transparent, affordable, and secure way of transferring value in Canada and beyond, without the risk of instability in the traditional cryptocurrency market.”

The announcement did not provide a period when the coin will officially be released.

Stablecoins are seen by some as a bridge between the crypto sphere and traditional investors, as the backing of a currency, commodity or algorithm can provide more stability than “un-pegged” cryptocurrencies.

The crypto community has stressed the importance of audits for stablecoin projects, as some do not possess the appropriate backing reserves.

Last year, the stablecoin Tether (USDT) was subpoenaed by the U.S. government following suspicions that the project did not have the necessary dollars to back the currency at its claimed 1:1 ratio.

  1. Does anyone know what happened to Dimepiece LA celebrity streetwear brand? I am unable to check out on Dimepiecela site. I’ve read in Vogue that they were bought out by a UK hedge fund in excess of $50m. I’ve just bought the Dimepiece Fire & Desire Case Mate Tough Phone Cases from Ebay and totally love it xox

  2. I run a vape shop web directory and we have had a posting from a vape store in the USA that also sells CBD goods. A Calendar month later on, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been restricted and have requested us to remove PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store web directory. We do not retail CBD goods like CBD oil. We simply offer web marketing solutions to CBD companies. I have checked out Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Top Wellness Retailer and if you take a close peek, you will witness that they sell a surprisingly wide-ranging stable of CBD items, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement solution. It seems that PayPal is employing double standards to many different companies. Because of this restriction, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related online site. This has constricted my payment choices and right now, I am heavily contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have checked with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is doing is absolutely unlawful and inequitable as it should be applying a systematic criterion to all firms. I am still to consult yet another lawyer from a US law firm in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. Meanwhile, I would be extremely appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with different payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD firms.
