    I don't understand the concept of "investing" in stablecoins. If their value is stable, where is the financial gain coming from? Is it the staking or pledging of collateral of something like BTC, to someone that is creating stablecoins against that collateral and receiving interest on that collateral?

      Their value is pegged to something unstable. People do invest in USD right?~ I think for the most part people are using stablecoins as their dry powder for trading. You can also stake or pool them and get a yield.

    Why have we not heard more from the IRS, especially with Paypal getting involved. No one will want to spend crpto and keep paying capital gains on every transaction (think a cup of coffee). Have you guys heard anything?

    I believe there's a so-called 'Sand Dollar' in the Bahamas as an example of a live CBDC.
