RE: Burnpost update for SBD at 1 USD and accompanying rule improvements

in #steem3 years ago

So basically? while Sbd is at or below peg, it will be used to buy steem to help maintain the peg and possibly move steem price up a bit while keeping the peg of sbd?

Sort:  

More or less. If SBD is at or below peg, it will be converted using the blockchain function, which permanently destroys it and reduces the supply of SBD. We won't ever be buying SBD as this would result in selling STEEM onto the market (arguably contrary to the goal of serving all STEEM holders by supporting the price of STEEM via buying/locking/burning). The conversion function creates STEEM which will then be burned or powered up (never sold or spent) as dictated by the market conditions.
