basecoin vs bitUSD as a price stable cryptocurrency
« on: October 14, 2017, 12:07:18 am »
Looks like basecoin is getting a lot of backing from crypto investors.  It's trying to create a decentralized stable cryptocurrency pegged to an instrument such as the USD, CPI,  or a basket of currencies.  Here's the whitepaper:

It tries to peg its currency using economic supply/demand theory touted by central banks.  It uses 3 tokens to help expand or contract the supply:  basecoin, base bonds, and base shares.

Sounds nice but how these tokens interact in the real world is another question.  It even gives drawbacks of bitshares' bitUSD;  don't agree w/ the first point.

Even if basecoin doesn't work perfectly it may get more traction than bitUSD just because of the people backing it.
