Algorithmic Peg

Algorithmic peg in the realm of cryptocurrencies refers to the mechanism used by algorithmic stablecoins to maintain a stable value, typically pegged to a fiat currency like the US dollar.

These stablecoins leverage smart contracts and algorithms to regulate the supply and demand of the cryptocurrency, ensuring that its value remains close to the pegged price, often $1. Algorithmic pegs can be achieved through various methods, such as rebasing algorithms that adjust the token supply based on market conditions, seigniorage models that involve stablecoins and seigniorage shares, or fractional models that use a combination of tokens to stabilize the value. By employing algorithmic pegs, these stablecoins aim to provide a reliable and less volatile digital medium of exchange within the cryptocurrency market.
