DUSD is the native stablecoin for the DeFiChain ecosystem. It was introduced by DeFiChain as part of its dTokens feature. Users can mint DUSD by first depositing collateral.
DUSD was originally designed to be an overcollateralized stablecoin backed by its underlying assets. The collateralization ratio was set at 150%. The initial high demand for DUSD saw its price rise and stay consistently above 1 USD. This led to the introduction of an algorithmic mechanism to bring the price of DUSD back to peg. The mechanism was to burn the native blockchain token, DFI, to mint DUSD; this provided users an alternative way to create DUSD rather than buy it overpriced on an exchange.
DUSD can be used as a medium of exchange or store of value on DeFiChain. It is also commonly used as the base pair for several liquidity pools on the DeFiChain DEX. If you wanted exposure to other dTokens, then you would need DUSD to swap for those assets.
