Stable Coin Stability
TheBitcoinMan at Broctagon FinTech Group Herbert Rafael Sim offered a session called “Are Stablecoins Key to Crypto Adoption?”
Today's Conventional Challenge
Sim identified the problem that "legacy asset trading tools create a user experience that is rife with inefficiencies - single-asset wallets, significant capital lock-up, and generally cumbersome asset management processes. And when it comes to cryptocurrency, these problems are magnified in the current state of trading platforms.”
