Stablecoin issuing protocol e-Money will connect to Algorand, making its European currency-based stablecoins available on that blockchain.

  • Algorand users will have access to European stablecoins, including those pegged to the euro (eEUR), Swiss franc (eCHF) and Swedish krona (eSEK), according to an announcement Monday.
  • E-Money said Algorand’s support will enable applications offering native-currency options throughout Europe to be built faster and scaled more quickly.
  • The stablecoins issued by e-Money are backed by deposits and government bonds held at commercial banks, utilizing a dynamic peg to track the underlying interest rate to allow users to accrue interest.
  • The integration also expands the suite of stablecoin support available in the Alogrand ecosystem. Besides U.S. dollar stablecoins USDC and USDT, fiat-backed assets pegged to the Canadian dollar and Brazilian real are also in circulation on the network.
