  1. What is USC?

The USC stablecoin is soft-pegged to USD, following the battle-tested MakerDAO's Collateral Debt Position (CDP) model that mints the DAI stablecoin.

USC tokens are generated when a lender deposits a set amount of collateral, into a collateralized debt position (CDP), and is available for minting on the Carbon protocol, via its native Nitron Money Market platform.

  1. How does USC work?

USC is a decentralized stablecoin, where new tokens are issued through the use of autonomous smart contracts on the Carbon blockchain. USC is backed by other digital assets that are put up for collateral to mint the USC tokens, on demand.

Carbon users will lock in collateral on the Nitron platform to mint our USC stablecoin, which can be subsequently redeemed by burning the stablecoin. The value of the collateral locked in the CDP needs to maintain a certain percentage of the stablecoin minted, usually around a 150% collateralized ratio (i.e. over-collateralized). This over-collateralization is important to prevent the CDP from being under-backed during periods of volatility, which may cause the stablecoin to be depegged.

If the collateralization ratio of the loan falls below the minimum ratio, the CDP becomes under-collateralized. Anyone (i.e. liquidators) may then call a function on the contract to liquidate the loan and receive a percentage of the collateral as a reward (i.e. liquidation bonus), in exchange for backing the value of the stablecoin minted. This ensures that all stablecoins are sufficiently backed and will maintain their peg.

Consequently, by repaying the loan and its accrued interest, the returned USC is automatically burnt (i.e. destroyed) and the collateral will be made available for withdrawal.

  1. What sets USC apart from other stablecoins?

One of the key features that sets $USC apart from other stablecoins is its use of a unique over-collateralization mechanism. Unlike other stablecoins, which are typically backed by a reserve of assets such as fiat currencies or other cryptocurrencies, $USC is backed by a basket of crypto assets. This includes a combination of IBC and other assets (such as Ethereum, BNB Smart Chain via Poly Network), which helps to provide greater stability and security for the stablecoin. The list of accepted collateral can be found on Carbonscan, the blockchain explorer; More can be added via governance voting.

Since USC is IBC-enabled, this makes the stablecoin a secure, Cosmos-native stablecoin that can be used on other IBC-enabled chains securely (without having to rely on bridged stablecoins, which are often the target of exploits).

Together, the above features make CarbonUSD a decentralized, censorship-resistant and cosmos-native stablecoin that is highly secure.

  1. What is Carbon, USC's native blockchain?

Users can mint $USC on its native blockchain, Carbon. Carbon is a decentralized Layer 2 cross-chain trading solution built atop Cosmos-SDK, a modular, extensible framework that allows developers to create custom blockchain applications that are interoperable with other Cosmos-based networks. This means that developers can easily build and deploy applications on the Carbon Protocol that can interact with other blockchain networks in the Cosmos ecosystem.

Carbon is designed specifically to support scalable and secure trading of derivatives and sophisticated financial instruments such as options, futures and bonds. The platform uses a unique proof-of-stake consensus mechanism that allows it to process transactions quickly and efficiently, even at high volumes. This makes it well-suited for applications that require fast and reliable transaction processing, such as decentralized finance (DeFi) applications.

Acting as a building block for DeFi, Carbon bridges the Cosmos and Ethereum ecosystems. The network is not only IBC-enabled, but supports bridging and permissionless listing of tokens from non-IBC chains as well.

A promising use case for Carbon is seen in Demex, a reference trading UI for Carbon and the world’s first fully decentralized derivatives platform. Similar to the blockchain it is built on, Demex is fully permissionless, allowing anyone to list new markets, tokens, and participate in DeFi. This gives control back to users for a truly decentralized experience.

Overall, Carbon Protocol is a powerful and versatile blockchain platform that offers developers a flexible and secure environment for building and deploying their own blockchain applications.
