The jEUR is what is called a synthetic fiat currency, meaning that it is not anchored to an off-chain fiat reserve. Instead, it tracks the price of the Euro against the price of the US dollar via a peg mechanism with USDC, one of the biggest and most trusted USD stablecoin on the market.
By being linked to the USDC and redeemable with it, the jEUR directly benefits from its vast liquidity and deep integration within the ecosystem. The jEUR can therefore be used for any type of volatility-free payment or trading operations on the Ethereum blockchain.
The jEUR is issued and can be exchanged on Synthereum, the on-chain Forex protocol developed by Jarvis Network.
It can be issued by a borrowing mechanism, where anyone can deposit USDC in the protocol and receive 75% of the deposit's value in jEUR. The liquidity provider receives in reward 50% of trading fees generated on Jarvis, as well as UMA tokens.
It can be freely exchanged on app.jarvis.exchange for other jFiats or for USDC without any slippage, using Chainlink's price feeds. It can also be exchanged on other decentalized exchanges like Uniswap or Sushiswap, but with slippage.
The following currency pairs are available to sell jEUR with our off-ramp service.
