    Cardano is developing a new stablecoin.

    Djed, a new algorithmic stablecoin protocol proposed by Cardano developers, is a concept for a new algorithmic stablecoin protocol.

    Djed will be able to avoid major issues that other stablecoins have encountered. Cardano developers are developing an algorithmic stablecoin. It will easily integrate into any type of DeFi protocol.

    Djed will also have an autonomous bank, and the process of minting new coins and backing them with the base coin will be stable and controlled thanks to its smart contract design.

    Djed will initially be backed by USD, but it can be pegged to any fiat currency.
