Cardano founder believes that Djed stablecoin cannot lose its USD peg, unlike Terra’s UST; here’s why

Charles Hoskinson, founder of IOHK and Cardano chain, has suggested an explanation to today’s collapse of Terra’s stablecoin, UST, and its native coin, LUNA.

He has also claimed that Cardano-based stablecoin Djed is well protected from losing its dollar peg.

Meanwhile, LUNA has managed to put up a fight. After falling below $1, the coin surged to the $5 zone but then again went down. At press time, it is trading at $2.14, down 92.4%.

“Massive attack surface for UST”

Hoskinson believes that LUNA’s crash was the result of an attack that any DeFi protocol or cryptocurrency may face at any time.


He stated that an attack like that could be pulled off by anyone from hackers to traders. A little exploit is enough to break it and succeed, Hosk tweeted.

Here’s “how Djed is protected from something like this”

When asked by a Twitter user how the Djed stablecoin based on Cardano can avoid losing its USD peg, Hoskinson gave a short reply: “Overcollateralization.”

Djed is also an algorithmic stablecoin, like UST; however, its algorithm is based on a 400%-800% collateral ratio for Djed and Shen (Djed’s reserve coin).

Through this, Djed’s collateralization mechanism is decentralized and supported by users who mint Shen and put ADA into the liquidity pool. Thus, the rate of collateralization remains more or less stable.

ADA will be next LUNA: Max Keiser

At the time that the tweet was published, ADA dropped 11.5%.
