Cardano Welcomes Its First Fiat-Backed Stablecoin


Cardano, a leading Layer-1 smart contract network, has recently unveiled the introduction of the USDM stablecoin by Mehen Finance, marking a milestone in its journey towards wider acceptance. 

The USDM stablecoin, which is fully supported by United States dollars, guarantees a 1:1 conversion rate for its users. It stands out as the first fiat-backed stablecoin on the Cardano blockchain, devoid of algorithmic complexities. The advent of USDM is poised to fortify the ecosystem’s security, scalability, and sustainability for decentralized applications.

Recently, the Cardano Foundation teamed up with the Dubai Police and will work towards enhancing its security measures for criminal investigations.

Cardano Sees the Debut of USDM

Mehen Finance wasted no time in revealing plans to onboard institutional customers for USDM promptly, with the process expected to take a mere one to two days. 

Consequently, users can anticipate the gradual integration of the USDM stablecoin onto the Cardano blockchain during the week of March 18. This strategic maneuver is set to invigorate Cardano’s ecosystem, attracting a broader spectrum of users and developers keen on harnessing the potential of the new stablecoin.

Remarkable Growth in the Ecosystem

The Cardano network has been experiencing remarkable growth in its ecosystem over recent quarters, with the launch of Mehen’s USDM stablecoin expected to fuel this expansion even further. 

Unlike its counterparts like iUSD and DJED, which rely on algorithms or synthetics, USDM assures full backing by US dollars. This direct backing is designed to inspire greater confidence among users, facilitating seamless minting of the cryptocurrency against deposited USD. 

The previous quarter alone witnessed a notable 37% quarter-over-quarter and 673% year-over-year increase in Cardano’s stablecoin value, indicating robust demand within the ecosystem.

USDM Eliminates the Need for Additional Smart Contracts

The integration of USDM into Cardano’s blockchain streamlines transactions by eliminating the need for additional smart contracts. This streamlining is expected to significantly boost transaction efficiency and the user experience. 

As the platform continues its expansion, the addition of USDM is anticipated to be pivotal in attracting more developers and users interested in exploring the advantages of a secure and scalable blockchain environment.

Cardano Price to Skyrocket?

Crypto analyst Ali has drawn comparisons between Cardano’s current price action and historical patterns observed from 2018 to 2021. 

If these trends persist, ADA’s price could consolidate within the $0.55 to $0.80 range in the coming weeks, potentially surging to $1.70 thereafter. Subsequently, a consolidation phase might pave the way for a breakthrough to $5, reflecting growing investor interest and confidence in Cardano’s future prospects.
