Cardano's Stablecoin Djed launching soon, Will ADA prices pump?
Cardano momentum is building as the launch of the Djed stablecoin. ADA prices have yet to make a big move.
Dijed is an over-collateralized algorithmic stablecoin, Cardano DeFi TVL is increased by 50% this year, and ADA is used to back the minting of the dollar-pegged asset.
Djed has been developed by Cardano backers IOG and powered by Coti a layer 1 scalable enterprise network.
Djed stablecoin is planning to release this month, Djed is entering a crowded stablecoin market that already accounts for 13% of the entire crypto market cap and almost a third of the top ten assets.
And yes, $Djed is still on track for launching THIS month— Djed Stablecoin (@DjedStablecoin) January 14, 2023
On the border, Djed uses a similar formula to existing stablecoins like Frax. it uses collateral from ADA and a reserve coin called SHEN minted and burnt to preserve the dollar peg of Djed.
ADA is sent to the Djed smart contract in return for Djed, then acts as the balance when ADA prices fluctuate, Frax which is fractionally collateralized with USDC and FXS will be over collateralized with ADA.
According to Coti's Twitter post:
"Djed is over collateralized by 400% to 800% this means that it has 4 to 8 times more underlying value backing it than the total sum of Djed minted."

The launch will likely boost the total value locked on the Cardano ecosystem and potentially ADA prices.
