Stablecoins are digital assets designed to maintain a stable value, typically linked to a fiat currency or a commodity for transacting and accounting. In real-world instances, stablecoins are used for cross-border payments and function as banking infrastructure for those without access, increasingly growing in popularity worldwide.

Through this, users can commit their Algo to DApps, allowing them to participate in governance through their offerings. With the many types of services offered, the primary purpose is to enable users to obtain governance yields on top of any potential DeFi yields.
