What is stablecoin like IDRT used for?

As an asset that can easily be traded internationally, crypto excel from a technological point of view. However, the high fluctuations in the value of crypto assets make it not yet ideal to be used as a means of payment for daily transactions.

Stablecoins such as IDRT is a solution to the need for assets that can be traded easily anywhere, but with a more stable value. So what are the benefits of a stablecoin like IDRT?

1. Connecting rupiah with crypto technology

As explained earlier, stablecoins like IDRT were created to combine the advantages of crypto assets and fiat currencies. These advantages include fast transaction processing and the security or privacy of crypto assets, and the stable value of fiat currencies.

As an ERC-20 token or a token with a technical standard used in the Ethereum blockchain, IDRT allows you to transfer assets worth rupiah cheaply and quickly anywhere in the world. With traditional financial institutions such as banks, it takes quite a long time to send money abroad, and the cost is relatively high. With stablecoins, you can send funds quickly at a much lower cost.

Not only that, the delivery process no longer requires the role of third parties such as banks. You can directly send IDRT to the destination address via the Ethereum wallet you are using.

The combination of blockchain Ethereum and the stability of rupiah currency results in a digital asset that can be transacted or sent to any part of the world quickly without intermediaries such as banks.

2. Safe and immutable transactions

All transactions made on the blockchain are immutable, and cannot be changed. All transactions are also carried out according to smart contract rules, thereby eliminating the human error factor that can occur in traditional financial transactions.

3. Can be used on various crypto exchanges
