From the Stable Coins given, I've choose the Paxos Standard (PAX) in which I will be discussing some important information of this Stable Coin but before we go further let us briefly discuss first what is Stabel Coin.

Stable Coin are cryptocurrencies who pegged to be like the price of a US Dollar which it means that it's price will not go up or go down too much from the US Dollar price and that make it very unique.

Another stable coin for this week that we might also look at.

Hopefully, all their products and services will work good and be better in the future. As I always said, we must read and study all the platforms we might go with before taking any action.

This would be my homework task article to Prof. @yohan2on this 7th Week of the Academy and hopefully, everything is fine and be accepted. I've appreciate all the efforts and information I've got from the lesson and I'm looking forward to the next lesson next week.
