WAVES answered questions after new stablecoin announcements

Ivanov took to Twitter on December 20 to announce a new stablecoin project, as well as the USDN contingency resolution plan. However, this situation drew reaction from the community. Recently, the Waves team answered various questions on the subject.
First of all, it was noted that the USDN reserve fund decreased by 10 million WAVES. Traders were worried that if large amounts of money were withdrawn in this way, the Neutrino reserve would be depleted. “Although reserves are declining, trend forecasts do not guarantee future results,” the developers said in response.

There are some concerns for Optimism (OP)
Crypto Pragmatism analyst Jack Niewold made some statements regarding Optimism (OP). According to the analyst, there is a danger of inflation in the Ethereum layer-2 solution Optimism. According to Niewold, the OP’s daily inflation rate hovers around 1.1 percent. Bitcoin’s annual inflation rate is 1.54 percent. It is worth emphasizing that one is daily and the other is annual rates. According to Niewold, this situation does not look good for the token, “especially considering the depth of liquidity in exchanges is low”. There is a high risk of a sharp drop in price after several million sales are made.
