Get acquainted with TerraUSD (UST)

The decentralised stablecoin of the Terra blockchain is known as TerraUSD (UST). The coin was launched in September 2020 and is scalable as well as yield-bearing.

The coin was created with an intention to deliver value to the Terra community, offering higher levels of scalability, interest rate accuracy, as well as interchain usage to its users.

Being a stablecoin, it is pegged to the US dollar, and if there is a dip in UST's value in comparison to the US dollar, its investors can sell the coin for dollars and make money.

Bottom Line

Terra is continuously making efforts for enabling its UST to be a dominant stablecoin in the crypto market, and this proposal is likely to help the stablecoin achieve such a position.
