Anchor (ANCT), a two-token, algorithmic stablecoin pegged to the sustainable and predictable growth trend of the global economy, is now listed on Liquid and available for trading as of today, August 26, 2019. As a unified, globally-sourced trading platform that bridges the worlds of fiat and crypto, Liquid is a premier exchange for crypto assets, and the ideal launchpad for Anchor’s international token rollout on exchanges. The value of ANCT paired against USD at the time of launch is approximately $0.79 USD, and is also available for trading pairs against BTC, ETH, and XRP.
ANCT offers a solution for traders seeking a dependable hedge against market volatility and inflation. Additional benefits include liquidity, retaining long-term price stability of earnings and savings, an easy on-ramp from fiat to crypto, as well as simple exchange into other fiat or crypto currencies.
In an announcement released earlier this month, Mike Kayamori, CEO and Co-founder of Liquid, said, “We are true believers of the impact cryptocurrencies can have on the future of finance, which drives us to support companies like Anchor. With the technology to provide stability against rising inflation and market volatility, we are excited to be the first exchange to launch a token pegged to the growth of the global economy.”
Anchor Founder and CEO Daniel Popa said, “Anchor’s listing on Liquid, marks the first time an algorithmic stablecoin pegged to the global economy is available for users to purchase, trade, and sell. Anchor and Liquid’s commitment to transparency and regulatory compliance makes Liquid an ideal fit to be the first exchange to list the Anchor Token (ANCT).”
“Given the uncertainty plaguing the world’s fiat-driven economies,” Popa added, “Anchor is providing an alternative to fiat-pegged stablecoins and offering crypto traders, businesses, organizations, and individuals long-term price stability, preservation of purchasing power, and protection against inflation while hedging against market volatility.”
Anchor also recently released its new Anchor Wallet in beta. The Anchor Wallet is a stable and secure store of value providing ease of liquidity at any point in time by using the wallet’s transfer feature to any Ethereum wallet address. Anchor Wallet users can purchase ANCT with any fiat currency or major cryptocurrencies including BTC, ETH, USDT, and USDC.

A two-token, algorithmic stablecoin, Anchor is pegged to global economic growth via the Monetary Measurement Unit (MMU). The MMU is a non-flationary financial index created by an algorithm that tracks a series of macroeconomic indicators to provide the most accurate, available measure of real value that exists in the world today.
Anchor’s two-token model consists of Anchor Tokens (ANCT), that serve as the main currency/payment tokens; and Dock Tokens (DOCT), the utility tokens that stabilize the currency ensuring ANCT remains pegged to the MMU, regardless of external market fluctuations. DOCT cannot be used as a means of payment, transferred between token users, nor traded on an exchange. DOCT can only be purchased during a Contraction Phase and will be automatically converted to ANCT either after their respective waiting periods, or when an Expansion Phase occurs. Anchor’s elastic currency supply is regulated by the Contraction and Expansion stabilizing mechanisms through which Anchor’s system programmatically buys and sells, as well as burns and mints tokens in order to maintain ANCT’s price in equilibrium with the MMU.
