As it was announced, on the 3rd of July, 2019 Dukascopy Bank has started the Public Test phase of its Dukascash project (announcement). The positive reaction of the market to that announcement almost doubled the price of the Dukascoin.
During the Public Test, Dukascopy Bank declares its intention to check the industry's general interest towards stable coins backed by the Bank and invites the leading crypto industry actors to a dialogue regarding the project.
At the same time, the Bank will verify the effectiveness of the developed procedures related to Dukascash, its regular monitoring system and the potential ability to expand the project within the short time frame upon the request of potential partners. To do so, in the framework of the Public Test, the Bank is going to add to the list of tokens another five stable coins.
These new stable coins are CNY , GBP , JPY , MXN and RUB pegged to Chinese Renminbi, Pound of Sterling, Japanese Yen, Mexican Peso and Russian Ruble, respectively. Such expansion of Dukascash tokens should prove the scalability of the project.
Creating the family of stable coin tokens supported by the Bank, freely convertible with the same cross rates as their base currencies is considered by the Bank as a general target of the project. In fact, the Bank may rapidly extend the list of Dukascash tokens family members up to 23 currencies, all of which are currently available as a base currency for clients' accounts. Further extension of the list will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
The Bank reminds that during the period of the Public Test, which will continue until the official termination, the Bank does not take any obligation and does not guaranty the continuation of the project. In any case and independently on the results of Public Testing, possible future amendments to the White Paper and continuation or discontinuation of the project, the Bank takes an obligation to buy back all Dukascash tokens purchased by clients during the Public Test phase.
