新加坡正式推出首个以新加坡元为支持的稳定币项目

本周,一个名为SGDR的稳定币项目亮相新加坡。

据了解,该项目是由Rate团队创建的,并宣称自己是新加坡首个以新加坡元为支持的稳定币项目。2018年,该团队通过ICO筹资1500万美元,投资方包括Matrix Partners(中国)、Node Capital和FBG Capital以及Fenbushi Capital创始人Bo Shen。

该项目团队表示,SGDR目前的服务对象主要是需要对其数字资产组合进行交易和对冲的投资者。未来,Rate还希望将这一项目拓展到更多实际应用场景,比如小额支付、事件驱动支付、甚至是物联网设备之间的支付等。

正如前文所介绍的,SGDR以新加坡元为支持,而新加坡则是全球11个获得标准普尔AAA主权信用评级的国家之一。

所有新加坡元均由新加坡持牌信托公司独立金融管理局控制的托管账户管理。Rate表示,未来这一机制有望演变为完全合法信托,受托人承担信托义务,确保代币持有人拥有SGDR代币所代表的新加坡元的合法实益所有权。

SGDR目前还没有根据新加坡证券及期货法获发牌照或注册,目前仅向经认可的专家或机构投资者提供封闭测试。

SGDR利用Rate的Rate3网络标记化和跨链身份协议。 Rate3 Tokenization Protocol是用于在以太坊和Stellar上进行标记化的端到端协议,而Rate3身份协议则是用于创建和管理统一的交叉链身份的协议。

2018年,稳定币这一概念可谓风靡一时,市场中也出现了不少相关的项目。简而言之,稳定币就是一种加密货币,其价格与黄金或美元等现实世界资产挂钩,试图利用加密货币低成本、交易快、24/7结算、部分所有权和可编程性等技术有点,将其与主流货币的稳定性和信任相结合。

总部位于新加坡的加密货币创业公司Mars Blockchain上周在交换平台Kryptono Exchange和Top.one Exchange上宣布推出其稳定币1SG。与SGDR一样,1SG与新加坡元挂钩,目标是优化现有稳定币(如USDT、TUSD和USDC)的短缺。

A new stablecoin project called Singapore Dollar Rate (SGDR) has launched in Singapore.

Created by the team behind blockchain startup Rate, SGDR is said to be the first Singapore dollar-backed stablecoin, “guaranteeing users full redeemability for Singapore dollars on demand,” according to a company’s FAQ. Rate raised US$15 million in an initial coin offering (ICO) in 2018 that saw participation from Matrix Partners China, Node Capital, and FBG Capital, as well as Fenbushi Capital founder Bo Shen.

The newly launched SGDR is targeted at investors for trading and hedging purposes for their digital asset portfolio. Further down the road, the company says it sees more complex use cases including micropayments, event-driven payments and even machine-to-machine payments between Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices.

SGDR is backed by Singapore dollars, one of the eleven countries worldwide with a AAA sovereign credit rating by Standard & Poor’s, as of 2018, Rate claims.

All Singapore dollars are managed under an escrow account controlled by an independent Monetary Authority of Singapore-licensed trust company. Rate says the arrangement will later evolve into a full legal trust with the trustee undertaking fiduciary duties in ensuring token holders have legal beneficial ownership of the Singapore dollars as represented by SGDR tokens.

SGDR is not a licensed or registered under the Singapore Securities and Futures Act and is currently only available in closed-beta to accredited, expert or institutional investors.

SGDR leverages Rate’s Rate3 Network tokenization and cross-chain identity protocol. The Rate3 Tokenization Protocol is an end-to-end protocol for tokenization on both Ethereum and Stellar, while the Rate3 Identity Protocol is a protocol to create and manage a unified cross-chain identity.

Stablecoins have been all the rage in 2018 with many projects launching throughout the year. A stablecoin is a cryptocurrency that’s price is pegged to a real-world asset like gold or the dollar, providing the technological benefits of cryptocurrencies minus the price volatility.

Cryptocurrencies are notorious for their extreme price swings, leading critics to say that these are speculative investments rather than currencies or assets. The 2018 cryptocurrency crash, for instance, saw bitcoin fall by over 80% between January 2018 and November 26, 2018.

Stablecoins are an attempt to harness the benefits of cryptocurrencies, including low costs, fast transaction speeds, 24/7 settlement of funds, fractional ownership and programmability, and combine them with the stability and trust in mainstream currencies.

The launch of SGDR comes at a time when a number of stablecoin projects are being launched in Singapore.

Singapore-based cryptocurrency startup Mars Blockchain announced last week the launch of its stablecoin 1SG on exchange platforms Kryptono Exchange and Top.one Exchange. Like SGDR, 1SG is linked to the Singapore dollar with the goal to optimize the shortage of existing stablecoins such as USDT, TUSD and USDC.
