Article 1

Stablecoin was designed to be an alternative currency, a store of value that would empower people to make peer-to-peer payments while bypassing the costly intermediaries of the financial industry. Stablecoins take care of the volatility problem, which can reach 10% in a few hours.

Article 2

Stablecoins are intended to have a considerably more stable value than traditional cryptocurrencies. They are linked to other assets, such as the US dollar or gold. The idea is that stablecoins may enjoy the benefits of bitcoin without the associated high volatility.
