The launch of eCAD will create the first transparent, affordable, and secure way of transferring value in Canada and beyond, without the risk of instability in the traditional cryptocurrency market."

Coinsquare’s eCAD aimed to provide the stability of the Canadian dollar along with the benefits of digital currency. Similar to other popular stablecoin, for every eCAD token or stablecoin there will be one Canadian dollar (CAD) held in reserve.
