“Stablecoins are the backbone of the crypto economy and their usage will continue to grow as more people realize that non-custodial and smart contract-based systems bring unprecedented certainty and transparency into global finance, resulting in greater adoption,” said CEO Stani Kulechov.

What is the goal behind GHO?

GHO will be a decentralized stablecoin available on the Ethereum mainnet. Users must deposit collateral at a particular ratio to mint GHO in order to borrow it. The user’s GHO will be burned by the protocol once they have paid back a borrowed position.

In conclusion, GHO will be over-collateralized by a variety of assets and decentralized. It will be supported by various types of collateral that are reachable through the AAVE protocol. The team predicts that GHO will have low transaction costs on L2s.
