I notice that both USD/x.token.io and USD/www.anchorusd.com have significant usage. I'm not sure what to tell friends looking to:

  • convert XLM into USD tokens
  • have a single USD trustline to accept (negating USD token splintering within wallets)

Which would you recommend to your friends, and why?

  • My naive view: x.token.io metadata looks significantly more official & thought out, however it appears there's been <1% change in its supply. anchorusd historically shows large changes in supply, which to me indicates that it has at least a semi-functional withdrawal/deposit mechanism, but www.anchorusd.com is so less sexy-looking than x.token.io 😅

Stronghold has the most volume on average.

    Are you referring to their USD token which states "This asset has been retired. Please redeem this asset immeadiately" ..?

  • @wTyeRogers I thought they were a solid 3rd place contender until just now.

  • Yeah, for the life of me I can't figure out how to deal with their USDS (stronghold USD); I've successfully deposited 10 USD into their interface, however their site seems to not allow any method of utility with it aside from withdrawing. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
