I’m not sure if this idea has been proposed before, so please forgive me if it has. Im not a coder or an influencer and my goal is not to become famous in the lunc comunity. The only thing I want is to increase the value of my bag so I came up with this idea and I would appreciate your opinion on it.
What is a stablecoin, and how can we create one that is truly stable?
The value of a coin is determined by the lowest price at which someone is willing to sell it and the highest price someone is willing to buy it. If we create a coin that we guarantee to buy back at the price of $1, it would act as a stablecoin because no one would buy or sell it for a different price on a centralized exchange.
My proposal is to create a new coin on the blockchain (let’s call it Coin B for the time being), worth $1 (or “pegged” to $1). Any new Coin B can only be purchased in the blockchain by exchanging Lunc at its market value. For example, at the current market value of $0.000125 per Lunc, it would take 8,000 Lunc to get one Coin B. The user would receive Coin B in his wallet, and the 8,000 Lunc would be burned. Coin B can be exchanged back into Lunc at the market value at any time, and the necessary amount of Lunc would be minted to give the user the correct amount based on the market value. This system allows users to have access to a stablecoin (Coin B) while reducing the supply of Lunc, potentially increasing its market value.
Transaction speed, super low fees, and no tax should be a high priority for transactions using Coin B, as it would be the blockchain currency.
Lunc would be the store of value. The more there is a need for Coin B, the less Lunc there is in the system. Transactions using Lunc should continue to be taxed (and burned).
Here is a list of possible events that could happen:
1- If the market value of Lunc goes up significantly, more people may want to exchange their Coin B for Lunc. This would not be a problem because even though there would be an increase in Lunc, the higher price of Lunc would allow less Lunc to be minted relative to the amount of Coin B circulating.
2- If the market value of Lunc goes up significantly, more people may want to cash out and exchange their Lunc for Coin B, which would decrease the supply of Lunc and potentially drive up its price even more.
3- If the market value of Lunc drops significantly, more people may want to exchange their Lunc for Coin B, which would decrease the supply of Lunc and potentially drive up its price.
4- If the market value of Lunc drops significantly, people may want to exchange their Coin B for Lunc to buy the dip, which would increase the supply of Lunc and potentially drive down its price.
Point 4 is the problem!
One solution could be to have a cool down period (or waiting period) for each Coin B arriving in a wallet before being able to exchange it for Lunc. If a user doesn’t want to wait, they could be heavily taxed on their transaction. This is an interesting solution as there could be companies with plenty of liquidity willing to make the exchange for the user in exchange for a certain cut.
If anyone has other ideas to prevent point 4, please feel free to propose them.
This idea is simple and easy to understand. From experience, simple works best. It does not rely on the good will of anyone nor does it count on every possible actors to play ball. I understand that it is not perfect and that a discussion is required to refine it.
Note: USDC could also be used in the same way as a store of value like Lunc, meaning it could be exchanged for some Coin B and vice versa.
