About Bit Trade and Emparta
Founded in 2013, by the current CEO and Managing Director, Jonathon Miller, Bit Trade is Australia’s own cryptocurrency exchange. Furthermore, it is Australia’s longest-running cryptocurrency exchange. Also, the team also happens to be amongst the founders of Australian Digital Commerce Association (ADCA). ADCA represents Australia’s businesses in the digital economy world of the blockchain.
Emparta, on the other hand, is a technology company, which wants to change the way we hire, using blockchain. It offers the employees immediate hiring and onboarding. Furthermore, it gives the employers law-compliant identity solutions and better payment solutions.
A stablecoin is a pegged, specifically, an asset-pegged cryptocurrency. Furthermore, another medium of exchange, generally Gold or USD, is attached with stablecoin. The exchange rate for the virtual currency comes to around 1:1. After that, its value fluctuates only when the value of the medium attached to it fluctuates.
Stablecoin solves the problem of volatility that investors confront with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). The cryptocurrency promises a steady return, a stable value and potential to be used as the backbone of a decentralized economy.
Thus, stablecoin provides the essence of blockchain: security, spontaneity, and transparency, along with stability.
Bit Trade has called itself “the first movers“, on this situation. Building the first stablecoin for an economy like Australia is indeed a huge move, and Bit Trade wants to ace the move.
