“We at STASIS feel that there’s still a huge gap in the learning curve when it comes to cryptocurrencies. When a euro stablecoin is issued by a U.S.- based entity using the U.S. legal and financial infrastructure, the risks of U.S. legislation are multiplied by European ones. When risks multiply, the resulting risk becomes the risk squared,” says Mr Klumov.

“Most users will be unaware of the level of risk involved with this emerging digital asset class. There are more than a dozen euro stablecoins on the market nowadays,” he adds. 

However, users can protect themselves by choosing EURS as it’ll offer stability in this volatile crypto environment.
