How Does Mithril Cash Work

While several different designs of algorithmic stablecoins have launched, we believe that the Basis Cash design is the best out there. It’s proven to be resilient while also having the widest distribution of users. Mithril Cash is a fork of the Basis Cash protocol.

The Mithril Cash protocol controls money supply similarly to how central banks of the world may guide the value of fiat money through monetary policy. By controlling the quantity of money supply in an economy by buying or selling bonds, a target value can be achieved (In this case $1). Instead of a central bank or a currency board, rules are set and executed programmatically via smart contracts so that behavior of the system can be predictable.
