UST, einer der größten globalen Stablecoins, ist diese Woche implodiert und hat das Luna-Ökosystem mit in den Abgrund gerissen. Vor diesem Hintergrund stellt sich die Frage, wie sicher Stablecoins eigentlich sind und ob wir unser globales Finanzsystem in Zukunft tatsächlich auf kaum regulierten und von Nicht-Finanzinstitutionen ausgegebenen Tokens aufbauen sollten? In dieser CryptoFriday Episode widmet sich Alexander Bechtel daher dem Thema Stablecoin-Alternativen. Welche Möglichkeiten gibt es, Fiatgeld zu tokenisieren und somit im Blockchain-Ökosystem handelbar und transferierbar zu machen? Alexander stellt v.a. zwei Alternativen zu Stablecoins vor: Digitale Zentralbankwährungen (CBDC) und Giralgeldtokens. Beide Varianten haben ihre Vor- und Nachteile. Wenn es euch interessiert, welche Form des tokenisierten Fiatgeldes sich laut Alexander in Zukunft durchsetzen könnte und warum, dann hört gerne in die aktuelle CryptoFriday Episode von Bitcoin, Fiat & Rock'n'Roll.

Summary: Are markets returning back to normal, or are we in the eye of the storm? I sit down and chat with John Rubino about some of the latest happenings in the economy—some pointing to stability, and some alluding to the chaos to ensue. We discuss stablecoins, gas prices, and the most recent shifts in global currencies that present numerous potential outcomes for the markets. Tune in for more expert knowledge. Highlights: -NFTs don't make a lot of sense from an investing standpoint -Stablecoins are versions of Bitcoin; they are an asset that trade on the blockchain, but they represent something else; they were a vehicle for moving money all over the world -One stablecoin blew up that was set up to maintain the value of the stablecoin at one dollar. A lot of Bitcoin was purchased to back it, but then it tanked -The ‘everything bubble' may be bursting; peripheral assets are behaving badly -Think about what you own and how you can invest it; consider your gold and silver as money -Gas prices hit record highs this week all over the country -Taking out a mortgage to bet against the dollar is risky -There is a big diesel shortage in the US; we don't have enough diesel processing power, and can't build new plants -There is a lot more demand for Roubles in the global market, which is strengthening its exchange rate -We will see energy prices spiking and interest rates being raised in Europe Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Dollar Collapse

Stablecoins are a core part of the financial plumbing when it comes to cryptocurrency and digital assets. They promise that if you put a dollar in, you will always be able to get a dollar out. But last week saw Terra, one of the largest stablecoins, lose its peg to the dollar and collapse. Investors are estimated to have lost over $40 billion in value. Ouch.

Last week, we got a stark reminder of the volatility of cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin plummeted to its lowest value in 16 months. This time, the source of the cascade of selling came from an unexpected quarter. The market crashed after investors fled a type of crypto called stablecoins, whose worth is pegged to a traditional currency, like the U.S. dollar. Last week, that kinda fell apart.

Nic Carter, general partner at Castle Island Venture, Eric Wall, former Chief Investment Officer of Arcane Assets, and Erik Voorhees, founder of ShapeShift, discuss what happened with the TerraUSD (UST) and LUNA fiasco, Do Kwon's responsibility, the impact on the crypto ecosystem, and much more. Show highlights:  how Erik used to feel that algo stablecoins were impossible and why he changed his mind why Eric considers that the demand for UST was tied to a sh*tcoin why Nic didn't think LUNA would work how a stablecoin could theoretically be decentralized whether Nic, Eric, and Erik think this was a deliberate attack why they think whether or not there was a deliberate attack is not even relevant how the de-peg started with a liquidity issue on Curve why Nic thinks that Terra's biggest mistake was the 19.5% APY on Anchor whether pursuing a decentralized stablecoin is a worthy goal what aspects of UST were decentralized, according to Erik whether algo stablecoins are dead or whether in the future, death spirals of algo stablecoins can be avoided why Erik believes that everything in the crypto space is an experiment, even BTC what it says that the VCs behind Terra knew were so reputable why Do Kwon's arrogance and inexperience might have caused this chaos whether Terra can be rebuilt whether this collapse imposes risks on other blockchains and other assets why the Luna Foundation Guard's purchase of Bitcoin might have made the UST collapse even worse what Erik thinks about the global financial system and the US dollar how this event could trigger more regulation in the crypto space and why it might hurt the entire ecosystem how regulators might use the Terra case to impose CBDCs.   Thank you to our sponsors!

The $1.3tn cryptocurrency industry was on Thursday hit by one of its toughest challenges when stablecoin Tether — a critical cog in the market — failed to maintain its link with the US dollar. The company refuses to provide details on the Treasury holdings that back the stablecoin claiming their fear of revealing the ‘secret sauce.'Tether tumbled as low as 95.11 cents yesterday, far below the $1 peg that it seeks to maintain. Its price later recovered, but the slip-up, days after the failure of smaller algorithmic stablecoin rival TerraUSD, (and its paired coin Luna) sent bitcoin — the world's biggest digital asset — sinking to its lowest level since late 2020.Ratings group Fitch said the troubles at Tether and TerraUSD “highlight the fragile nature of private stablecoins, and will accelerate calls for regulation”.In todays video we look at how algorithmic stablecoins like Terra work, we discuss their importance in DeFi and smart contracts.Patrick's Books:Statistics For The Trading Floor:  https://amzn.to/3eerLA0Derivatives For The Trading Floor:  https://amzn.to/3cjsyPFCorporate Finance:  https://amzn.to/3fn3rvC Patreon Page: https://www.patreon.com/PatrickBoyleOnFinanceVisit our website: www.onfinance.orgFollow Patrick on Twitter Here: https://twitter.com/PatrickEBoylePatrick Boyle On Finance YouTube Channel Support the show
