Stablecoins Account for 86% of Transfer Volume: NFTs, Gaming Chip In 0.18%

“Projects will need ubiquitous Web3 platforms to shield them from fiat & support them to fully participate in the blockchain economy.”

PayPal recently emerged as the front runner among U.S. financial firms, after it launched PYUSD – its own US dollar-backed stablecoin. Other firms have also made declarative developments in this respect, such as Japan’s largest bank, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group [MUFG], which is collaborating with partner companies associated with prominent global stablecoins in a bid to roll out tokens via its exclusive blockchain platform, Progmat.

The crypto payment ecosystem is infinite in its growth potential, with a bouquet of grand-scale additions to the merchant cohort such as Visa, Stripe, Mastercard, and Checkout.com. According to Jamie Coutts, Bloomberg’s Intelligence Crypto Market Analyst – the launch of PayPal’s stablecoin has allowed for an unprecedented influx of fresh users in the Web3 arena.

In the developing economies, cryptocurrencies assume the image of a key player in diverse use-cases projecting from NFTs to gaming. The gate to mainstream adoption needs to be opened by venture building. Coutts also suggests that stablecoins bring in valuation postulations that provide shelter to customers in countries where inspection of national currency may be seismic.

Recent analysis shows an international increase in BTC values amongst the national currency of countries like Argentina, Türkey and Egypt. Coutts defines that 86.6% of on-chain value transfer is via stablecoins, 13% through DEXs and a miniscule fraction of 0.03% through NFTs.

The need of the hour that the expert outlines is – projects require all-faring Web3 platforms that can blossum in the shield of paper currency and lean into full engagement with the blockchain economy.
