FAQ

Need a little help?

  • A stablecoin is a cryptocurrency whose value is pegged to a certain currency, such as the U.S. Dollar or the Euro, or a commodity such as gold. While the price of most cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum fluctuates, a stablecoin gives its users the possibility to trade and hold value on the blockchain without being subjected to market volatility.

  • The stability of a stablecoin is ensured by the reserve backing it. When a new stablecoin is issued on the blockchain, assets are added in its reserves. Stablecoins are backed in various ways. Most are backed by fiat, meaning there's 1 dollar in reserve for each stablecoin. With Angle Protocol, USDA and EURA are over-collateralized: there's more value in assets in the reserves than the stablecoins in circulation. This equity buffer further enhances security.

  • There are various stablecoins pegged to different underlying assets, including the Dollar, Euro, Yuan, gold, silver, and more. Other differentiation criteria include the type of assets in the stablecoin reserves, like fiat currencies, cryptocurrencies, or real-world assets. Furthermore, variations in functioning, whether centralized, decentralized, or algorithmic, also distinguish stablecoins. Additionally, certain stablecoins like USDA, Angle's Dollar stablecoin, generate yield for their users.

  • Angle’s Dollar stablecoin USDA stands out as the most complete and reliable USD stablecoin, supported by a robust and innovative Price Stability Module. USDA is over-collateralized, decentralized and transparent, enabling anyone to verify its reserves in real-time. Furthermore, USDA generates yield for its users and facilitates competitive pricing when exchanging USD for Euro onchain.

  • Users can get USDA, Angle's Dollar stablecoin, by swapping their assets on the Angle app or decentralized exchanges (DEXs) like 1inch. It is also possible to acquire USDA by borrowing it against a variety of collaterals.

  • When users own crypto like USDA, they have two keys: a public key for receiving funds and a private key for signing transactions. If the private key is shared or compromised, they risk losing access to their funds.

    Users can manage their USDA with online or offline wallets. Online wallets, or hot wallets, store the private key on internet-connected devices like smartphones, vulnerable to attacks. In contrast, offline wallets, also known as hardware wallets, keep the private key offline in a secure environment.

    Angle Protocol recommends using the Ledger crypto wallet, the industry-leading hardware wallet, to secure USDA. Ledger ensures robust security with private keys stored on a military-grade security chip and requires a PIN code for access. With complete isolation between private keys — kept on the hardware wallet — and users' computer or mobile device when interacting with crypto service & DApp, the Ledger Ethereum wallet keeps keys safe, granting full control over USDA.
