Russia And Iran Partner To Develop a Gold-Pegged Stablecoin

Russia and Iran have reportedly partnered to create a new Gold-pegged Stablecoin that will benefit both countries, according to recent reports. 

An Escape From Sanctions

These two power countries have been working together to create a new virtual currency that will have its value pegged to the price of gold. 

This stablecoin development comes as an answer to prayers against sanctions imposed on both countries, and a way to facilitate international trade between the two countries.

The stablecoin which will be backed by the blockchain technology will operate on a decentralized digital ledger network. 

This technology will be a stable source of backing for the currency, making it secure, transparent and the perfect choice for the currency. 

The stablecoin will be pegged to the price of gold, which will give it a stable value. 

A Russian news site reported that this stablecoin will be called “the token of the Persian Gulf Region.”

If this currency becomes successful it will replace other fiat currencies that were used as a means of cross border interaction and payment in both countries. In that stead, this token between both countries will be used for that purpose to trade internationally with themselves.
