Cryptocurrency volatility is now a thing of the past. BitShares’ Smartcoins are tokens that are market-pegged to individual fiat currencies like the Dollar, Euro, Yuan and assets like Businesses, Gold and Oil. Thousands of investors, savers, traders and employers now use Smartcoins to buy and sell goods and services globally.
No bank account? No problem. The unbanked and underbanked can now buy, sell and use Smartcoins locally with anyone, or utilize one of the many Exchanges who will convert your fiat into Smartcoins and back again if needed. CCEDK.com, Poloniex, Bittrex, BTC38 and Yunbi just to name a few.
