  • Supply is controlled on the blockchain chain using smart contracts,
  • Price stability is achieved not only by collateral, but also by the introduction of supplementary measures and incentives.

The technical implementation of this type of stable coin is more complex and diverse than the fiat-backed implementation.In particular, the risk of software vulnerabilities due to defects in the implementation code of smart contracts increases.A potential problem with this type of stable coin is the changing value of collateral and its reliance on supplementary measures.Its complexity can hinder its widespread use, as it can be difficult to understand how prices are actually guaranteed.Due to the nature of the highly volatile cryptocurrency market, it is also necessary to maintain very high collateral to ensure stability.

Havven is an example of a current project for this type of stable coin.[7], DAI[8]and so on. There is also one that wraps Bitcoin by BitGo (WBTC).
