What is TerraUSD?

TerraUSD is a Korean stablecoin built on the Terra network. It is pegged 1:1 with the US dollar. Stablecoins are pegged to a steady asset and are useful for crypto holders during periods of market volatility. US dollar stablecoins allow cryptocurrencies to be traded without needing to convert to and from USD fiat currency. Stablecoins can also capture the benefits of decentralised finance (staking and other rewards) without experiencing the volatility that can come with other cryptocurrency tokens. According to the TerraUSD blog, the project aims to solve the issues typically related to stablecoins. These include scalability and interoperability. UST is a prominent interchain coin, meaning that it operates across a number of blockchain protocols (e.g. Solana, Terra and Ethereum). This is accomplished by a bridging protocol known as ‘Dropship’, inspired by the video game StarCraft. The bridging protocol allows UST to be distributed across a broad spectrum of decentralised finance applications. Through its interchain capabilities, Terra wants the token to be a building block for the future success of the entire cryptocurrency ecosystem. The coin can be staked, swapped and liquidity farmed on decentralised exchanges (DEXs) and can also be used to buy and sell goods/services on supported websites that utilise the PaywithTerra initiative.
