UXD Stablecoin Deep Dive

Deadline: Feb 10th 11:00pm IST

About the Bounty

Stablecoins are a critical piece of the crypto ecosystem. They provide the ability for traders, users, and projects to reduce market exposure without needing to completely withdraw their liquidity to a traditional bank account. Unfortunately, most of the prominent stablecoins - including USDT and USDC - are centralized.

UXD is a new project on Solana that aims to create a decentralized stablecoin. With backing from Multicoin, Alameda, and many others, they’re aiming to become the stablecoin of choice in the Solanaverse.

UXD is sponsoring a bounty to help users - both those new to crypto and those new to Solana - better understand how UXD works and why it’s useful. The winning submission will put UXD in context, show how to use their platform, and adhere to our deep dive essay guidelines.

🎯

Your Mission: Become an expert on UXD and summarize your findings in a written essay. You're welcome to write this review individually or in teams of 2. Bounties will be split among team members.
