If you are into finance and changing online currencies, then you have probably heard of Bitcoin [BTC]. One of the best features of Bitcoin is its transactions speed. It also provides security of the currency, your potential personal details are not shared and avoids fraudulent behavior from taking place.

The Digital Currencies are growing

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies continue to grow in significance and popularity. In the beginning, for a long time, the only supporters of Bitcoin were the people that adopted it, people who support the idea of market freedom and people passionate about the technology.

Bitcoin did not reach the critical mass with the general public but apparently, it is becoming quite a widespread mainstream of adopting the digital currency. A lot of people believe including the vanguards of Wall Street Journals, that the adoption of digital currency is inevitable. Personally, I believe the current currencies will not fall so easily and the digital currency will serve other purposes.

In late January, the Wall Street Journal’s opinion was that Bitcoin matters more than most people think. They also noted that the digital currencies will imbalance the financial industry. These kind of news are not really breaking news for the early adopters of Bitcoin. However, the news represents a seismic change in the thinking of traditional financial media. The adopters are concerned for the current Bitcoin exchange, which is considered unimportant in the big picture of technology implications.

The Gambling Industry being Transformed

Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency technology can transform various industries. In fact, it has the biggest impact on the online gambling business. Bitcoin and online gambling have already formed a mutually beneficial relationship, which grows stronger together. As an example, Gametwist Online Casino can offer payment in Bitcoins and it’s one of the few online casinos that have this kind of beneficial exchange. In addition, the players are slow to embrace the Bitcoin that did not stop growing in the payment conduit. Now, there is a rising number of online gaming businesses which are built to be Bitcoin-centric. This new wave of online gaming operators is light years ahead of their more rooted competitors with their Bitcoin and cryptocurrency influence.

Despite that, few established gaming brands, like Gametwist mentioned above have adopted Bitcoin and it is becoming a popular option for players. The exact percentage is hard to quantify, Bitcoin experts already suggest that casino, poker, and other gambling activities represent a significant portion of daily cryptocurrency volume.

Bitcoin exchange has surpassed the Western Union over a year ago and now is going towards PayPal. Regardless of the percentage and exchange, Bitcoin is considered the best coin gambling operators are looking for. Overall, Bitcoin has the potential to become more popular in the online gambling industry. Some casino websites have already incorporated Bitcoin as a different option for players. This is just the beginning and it is more likely that the Bitcoin will be used more often and in other industries as well.

What is USDQ and Q DAO?
Source: Platinum Engineering

In this article, Slava Zheltov shares about USDQ, a unique decentralized stable coin that makes it easy to collateralize Bitcoin. As a Blockchain Architect at PLATINUM ENGINEERING, Slava acts as a full-stack front-end developer.

Within his team, Slava is known for impeccable track record regarding security and reliability in projects, which he’s contributed to. Read this article and start learning about a decentralization wave, currently disrupting stable coin.

The thought of your bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies fluctuating in value almost on a daily basis is a hard thing to accept. But fluctuation also affects regular money as we know it.

If we want cryptocurrencies to become the future of money it should solve the issue of volatility first. The USDQ Token is a proposal to stabilize crypto and transition it from being a speculative asset to a functional store-of-value.

Introducing USDQ

First and foremost, USDQ is a cryptocurrency stable token. Like Tether [USDT]. This essentially means that its price is stabilized or “pegged” to the US Dollar. The Q DAO platform, on the other hand, is a smart contract platform built on Ethereum. The smart contract mechanism used is referred to as Collateralized Debt Contract.

This cryptocurrency is supported by any Ethereum account and is also compatible by any smart contract developed to use the USDQ exchange function. It is more steady than most non-fiat currencies available on account of this mechanism of valuation.

Where does the USDQ value originate from?

The value of the USDQ stable coin is linked to the Q DAO smart contract platform using the Collateralized Debt Contract [CDC]. This means that anyone can choose to use their own assets, in this case, bitcoin [other top 10  crypto assets will be added in future], as collateral which works as a guarantee.

This is made possible by the smart contract platform. The collateral assets are locked after being deposited into the Q DAO smart contract platform and allows the owner to generate USDQ stable tokens in return while at the same time creating debt for the same owner.

This debt is necessary because it helps to maintain the collateral inside the smart contract until it is fully repaid by the amount of USDQ tokens it originally generated. When the repayment occurs then owners of the collateral can withdraw and receive their collateral back.

The ecosystem and economy of the Q DAO platform and USDQ Token directly links both of these to the amounts being used as guarantee or collaterals.

When more users request USDQ stable coins the total amount of Collateralized Debt Contacts [CDC] will increase along with it because it is the main way to obtain USDQ stable coins. This, in turn, increases the value of Q DAO tokens. These tokens are the last component of the USDQ ecosystem and they are Ethereum based tokens whose main use is to carefully manage the operations of the fund via means of a Decentralized Autonomous Organization [DAO] system.

This includes voting rights and the capability of enforcing decisions based on majority rules. This last part is essential to the supply and demand of the Q DAO tokens.

Inside the workings of a Q DAO transaction.

Step 1: Origin of the CDC smart contract and depositing collateral guarantees

To use Q DAO tokens a user must first send a request to the USDQ platform which initiates the CDС and its respective smart contract.

Whenever a user wishes to mint USDQ, they will be asked to collateralize an amount in Bitcoin that is higher than the loan’s value. As of now, this rate is 166%.

Step 2: Generation of USDQ Stable coins from the CDС smart contract.

The user then executes another request or transaction to the platform to retrieve the USDQ that was generated on the first step. The platform also jots down the debt that is generated by this user which is the amount in need of repayment to unlock the collateral guarantee. The guarantee is always higher than the USDQ stable coins made available for the user as a safety measure.

Step 3: User makes repayment of the generated debt.

When the user finally makes the repayment of the generated debt they gain full access to the locked collateral. There is also an accrued interest fee that is meant to be paid which is accumulated daily. This means that the Q DAO tokens generated initially are taken back and removed from circulation.

Q DAO Regulations

Since the entire operation has plenty of safety measures it is very self-regulated. Because all operations begin with any user having to provide collateral which will be lower to the amount of USDQ stable coins received it creates a dissuasive control to prevent fraudulent transactions.

Q DAO Projections

The Q DAO tokens are actually indicative of another type of cryptocurrency that is completely governed by smart contracts and economic mechanisms to influence its valuation more effectively. You should keep an eye on what the future holds for this cryptocurrency as it aims to become a pioneer in the industry of stable coins and cryptocurrencies alike.

USDQ is a decentralized stable coin, which uses algorithms to offer higher stability and reliability. Fully on-chain and monitored by high-speed AI robots, ecosystem offers reliable defenses against malicious acts and attacks.

First, run in the line of fiat-pegs, USDQ is brought by PLATINUM ENGINEERING Team, looking to edge together innovative solutions in collateralization, using stabilizing mechanisms and oracles for the high-endurance stable coin. Fully anonymous, USDQ breaks limits out of this legacy world.
