It’s no news that the Naira continues to suffer currency devaluation at an alarming rate. In 2013, A dollar was 150 to the Naira, Today it is nearing 500 to the Naira, this increase is more than 300% in the last 7 years, what this means for your money held in Naira is that your money has lost 3x the value it used to have and on a wider scale, inflation an increase in the price of goods and services means that you’re generally losing value for your money and would need to work 3 times as hard and make 3 times as you were making in 2013 to beat this abnormal increase.


What then is the solution? 

Holding and saving your money in a more stable currency is the only way to beat this.

Stablecoins: Stablecoins are a cryptocurrency class that are backed by a stable reserve hence have a stable market value. Stablecoins have gained traction as they attempt to offer the best of both worlds—the instant processing and security or privacy of payments of cryptocurrencies, and the volatility-free stable valuations of fiat currencies. Stable coins enjoy a one to one ratio, this implies that one USDT is equal to one dollar(USD)
