Returns on stablecoins are close to zero, but the peg to the U.S. dollar allowed stablecoins to hold their positions amid the general decline of the crypto market. 

Stablecoins Showed the Best Financial Performance in January

The best financial performance among cryptocurrencies with a capitalization of more than $10 billion in January was shown by: 

  • Tether (USDT); 
  • Binance USD (BUSD); 
  • USD Coin (USDC); 
  • TerraUSD (UST). 

Their price remained almost unchanged, but even zero returns on the background of the general fall of quotations in the crypto market was the best financial result. For comparison, Bitcoin (BTC) lost about 20% of its value in January, Ethereum (ETH) tumbled 25%. Experts whose opinions are cited by CoinDesk agree that the main attraction of stablecoins is low volatility, which makes stablecoins a safe and productive asset. It lets investors wait out the “turbulent months” and provides attractive returns.
