What is the Reserve Project?
Reserve project aims to create a censorship resistant USD stablecoin, RSV and decentralized fiat on/off ramps. Ultimately, Reserve’s goal is to create a universal store of value, particularly in regions with unreliable banking infrastructure and regions where hyperinflation is an issue.
Reserve Project believes that the most responsible path to launch a decentralized digital currency is to start with a centralized fiat stablecoin, gather the necessary usage data, and use that data to evolve to a fully decentralized model. Below are the three phases in their roadmap:
The centralized phase - Reserve is backed by a small number of collateral tokens, each of which is a tokenized US dollar.
The decentralized phase - Reserve is backed by a changing basket of assets in a decentralized way, but still stabilized in price with respect to the US dollar.
The independent phase - Reserve is no longer pegged to the US dollar. It intends to stabilize its real purchasing power regardless of fluctuations in the value of the US dollar.
Currently, users are mainly from Venezuela and Argentina, two countries that have experienced hyperinflation on their respective national currencies. Reserve Project provides US dollars access to the citizens of Venezuela and Argentina, helping them to save with US dollars and transact with low friction.
RSR token is still currently exploring for a suitable revenue model. Ideas include the following:
Obtain fees from issuers of USDC, TUSD and PAX for having a larger slice of RSV collateral portfolio.
Enact a transaction fees for using RSV
Enable collateralised lending for the underlying USDC, TUSD, and PAX.
How does RSV maintain its peg to $1?
If the price of Reserve on the open market is lower than $1, arbitrageurs will be incentivized to buy it up and redeem it with the Reserve smart contract for $1.00 worth of collateral tokens. Arbitrageurs will continue buying on the open markets until the market price matches the redemption price of $1.00.
The same mechanism works in reverse when demand goes up. If the price of Reserve on the open market is higher than $1, arbitrageurs will be incentivized to mint new Reserve tokens for $1.00 worth of collateral and immediately sell them on the open market. They will continue selling on the open markets until the market price matches the purchase price of $1.00.
