WHY WE CARE
Passionate about a stablecoin

Imagine you live in a country with rampant high inflation or significant political or financial instability.  Now imagine that you are looking to provide for your family and save for their future - earning enough to send your children to school or university.

 

Without a reliable currency and somewhere safe to store your savings, it is very difficult to achieve this. For billions of people around the world this problem is a reality.  

 

A stable cryptocurrency can enable people to save and plan for their future globally - beating inflation and out of reach of untrusted counterparties.  

 

This is why we care passionately about ARC.

Why do we need a stablecoin?

Existing currencies have limitations when considered as a store of value or unit of measure.

National Currencies

National currencies are undermined by socio-economic factors and centralisation and are poor stores of value over the long run. Governments tend to adopt inflation management approaches to setting base rates, leading to poor returns with relatively high volatility.

Digital Currencies

Digital currencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum are increasingly successful in their adoption. But, as a currency, they are a victim of their own speculation, resulting in a high degree of volatility.

Stablecoin

There have been a few attempts for a stablecoin to address certain limitations of existing currencies. But each has limitations which we feel can be improved upon.

"One of the main problems cited about cryptocurrency is the fact that it's volatile; although many users and merchants may want the security and convenience of dealing with cryptographic assets, they may not wish to face the prospect of losing 23% of the value of their funds in a single day." – Vitalik Buterin. Founder, Ethereum.

THE STABLE CRYPTOCURRENCY
Introducing ARC Reserve Currency

"A private currency would prevail if it is essentially stable in value and prevent both excessive stimulation of investment and the consequent periods of contraction." - Friedrich Hayek. Nobel prize winning economist.

ARC is an intrinsic-value currency

Proceeds from the ICO and subsequent coin issues will be placed into a ring-fenced SPV, which then allocates capital into cash and fixed income investments.  ARC utilises currency diversification, returns from an underlying asset-class and price controls to create a stable currency.

Currency diversification
With a bias towards USD

ARC will allocate capital across the largest currencies as defined by the Bank of International Settlements trade-weighting analysis.

The largest currency exposure is likely to be USD, which facilitates a degree of correlation of ARC to USD.

Support from an underlying asset class
To deliver a base rate return

Diversified lending and fixed income investments provide the best combination of delivering consistent and predictable returns in line with the target return required, with low volatility and relatively good levels of liquidity; relative to other mainstream and alternative asset classes.

ARC will target a return that keeps the currency stable in real terms - tracking the rate of inflation across G10 countries.

There will be an allocation to cash (and equivalents) to assist with liquidity.

Exchange rate controls
To enable pricing to fall within a narrow and predictable range.

ARC benefits from transparent and predictable controls to maintain pricing within a narrow band relative to value of the underlying assets; as well as acting as support against downside pricing pressures - 'natural buoyancy' - and to protect against over-speculation. 

 

The controls enable flexible and non-dilutive issues of further currency, to respond quickly to increasing demand, and in compliance with regulatory frameworks.
