It would be an alternative way to pay transaction fees on the blockchain. With the Cardano Decentralized Finance (DeFi) protocol set to debut on the network soon, the use of a stablecoin to execute transactions will ensure that fee structures are transparent and more predictable for users. “I believe that adding the JD stablecoin to the Cardano blockchain will significantly improve how transactions are settled on the platform,” said Shahav Bar-Geffen, CEO of COTI Group.
The release date of the JD stablecoin has not been announced yet. But the COTI Group will work alongside the Cardano Foundation to bring this project to life on the blockchain.
