The Rise of Stablecoins in Emerging Markets and Authoritarian Regimes

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

One of the biggest new financial innovations in the past five years is the stablecoin: a virtual asset that is pegged to the dollar, but can be used by anyone. With a market capitalization north of $150 billion, stablecoins are used heavily by individuals who cannot otherwise access dollars in Argentina, Cuba, Lebanon, and beyond. Join the creator of the world’s biggest stablecoin, Tether, and a Nigerian entrepreneur who can attest to the remarkable rise of stablecoins in her own country.
