Universal Protocol Alliance’s Universal Dollar (UPUSD) Launches as First-Ever Interest-Paying Stablecoin


A conglomerate of blockchain-dabbling companies such as Brave, Bittrex International, Cred also not forgetting Bitgo have recently come together to launch a new revolutionary stablecoin. This stablecoin, which goes by the tag Universal Protocol Alliance Universal Dollar (UPUSD) is essentially a dollar-reliant token whose benefactors, holders and investors will earn some substantial interest just like what happens with a regular savings account.

Souring Demand For Crypto Assets That Pay Interest

The balooning stablecoin economy has seen the rise of options such as GUSD, TUSD, USDC and now the latest UPUSD. In particular, the latest entrant UPUSD is built of the premise of an ERC20 token that allows its holders/investors to earn substantial interest just for staking.

The token which will be launched on uphold starting March has received a lot of praise from backers and co-founders for its familiarity and usability

This development and inception are one of the latest examples of how mainstream assets are slowly but surely being replaced by crypto assets that are taking on the features and form of the conventional financial system that they were initially developed to beat.
