Most Cited Publications for Stablecoins, Blockchain, and Cryptocurrency

Stable CoinsStablecoins are an interesting use of blockchain technology as they allow easier trading of pegged assets, such as for US Dollars. Tether (USDt) and BitUSD were some of the first notable stablecoins, with TrueUSD, Gemini Dollar, and Dai also becoming more popular. There are several additional stablecoin projects that have different approaches, from collateralized fiat to collateralization with other cryptocurrencies or even metals. They also sometimes use algorithms to determine supply in order to stabilize prices and reduce volatility.

Ultimately, stablecoins provide a fast and secure method for global transactions. There are perhaps a dozen solid projects and at least a hundred total. Over time, this sector will grow rapidly; it may even become the dominant portion of the blockchain market, only time will tell. Some projects, such as Tether, have come under scrutiny because of the huge amounts in circulation with little evidence there is the backing of the project that is claimed.

Expect many more publications on this topic over the next year as it becomes more widely studied as an alternative to monetary policy approaches to circulating currencies.
