Learn More About Anchor


Anchor is a two-token, algorithmic stablecoin pegged to the sustainable and predictable growth trend of the global economy.  Anchor offers token users long-term price stability, preservation of purchasing power, and protection against inflation, while hedging market volatility.

Stablecoins backed by fiat and real world assets are susceptible to the same market fluctuations, depreciation, and loss of purchasing power as their traditional counterparts to which they are pegged. The global economy, on the other hand, has a sustainable and predictable growth trend with global GDP steadily increasing over time. Providing an alternative to fiat-pegged stablecoins, Anchor aims to remain stable regardless of any fiat currency’s strength, market fluctuations, or economic recessions.

Our vision is to create a stable platform for any crypto or traditional currency to peg their value to, and to be a cornerstone for price stability as a global currency and financial standard.
