Some of the use cases currently listed on the Stablecorp website are, Instant bridge asset between cryptocurrencies and fiat, Online FX solution through stablecoin-to-stablecoin trading and Inter & Intra Canada Transfer / Payment rail that is uniquely cheap and fast.

Executive Opinion

CEO of Canada Stablecorp, Jean Desgagne, said, "We are excited to be creating an important piece of financial market infrastructure for Canada that will serve the digitization of capital markets and provide a robust payment and settlement solution. QCAD represents a significant opportunity to set a new standard of transparency and auditability in digital currencies and will help drive trust and mass adoption of stablecoins."

QCAD is available for buying through ecosystem partners DVeX, Newton, Bitvo, Netcoins, and Coinsmart. Cryptocurrency custodians Balance and Bitgo will fully support QCAD stablecoin. Payment and settlement integration is available through Bidali and Gilded Finance, notes the announcement.
