Popular Exchange’s Plans For Wider Stablecoin Adoption

FTX exchange wants banks to accept stablecoins to enhance the wider adoption of stablecoins. Recently, the exchange polled its Twitter audience to find out whether banks won’t mind a $1m prize money to start accepting stablecoins.

The Stablecoin Adoption Challenge

Even though US financial regulators are also stablecoins as part of other virtual assets, it doesn’t mean banks have been forbidden from accepting it. However, the banks may have issues accepting stablecoins or digital currencies since they already support national digital currencies. But crypto exchanges remain resolute in their desire to further the cause of broader adoption of cryptocurrency.

FTX claims that it is seeking bank collaborations to make it possible for deposits and withdrawals to be instant. According to the exchange, many users find it challenging to make funds transactions between the banks and the exchange, with most transactions taking many days before completion. FTX’s decision might not be unconnected with the substantial increase in its userbase and transaction volume, as disclosed in its last quarterly report.

 As of this writing, the FTX exchange ranks third in the top crypto exchanges globally. Its growth and popularity are linked with a TV ad featuring NFL legend Tom Brady and collaborations with many top basketball teams such as the Golden State Warriors, Miami Heat, and other sports teams.

Highly Leveraged Trade Positions Are Wrong – FTX Boss

The FTX boss also claimed that the digital asset sector needs enhanced scalability before it can be taken with the seriousness it deserves. “Even though it is a good thing that blockchains are scaling (especially with Solana’s 50k TPS), it is nowhere near enough. Industrial-scale scalability requires a minimum of one million TPS. So, no blockchain can claim to be fast right now until they conduct at least a million TPS,” he said.

Scaling The Blockchains

Bankman-fried claimed that the accomplishments of the digital asset sector this year would be a waste without proper consideration for scalability. He further remarked that experience has shown that the leaders in this crypto space are those with a massive userbase. Hence, blockchains must become highly scalable to make remittances and payments realistic.

A side benefit of this scalability is that the blockchains can now be used for additional use cases like NFT-integrated video games and social media capabilities. “Consequently, it is important to have a proper scaling schedule for this sector to enable it to accomplish the million TPS,” the FTX boss concluded.
