Stablecoins are a type of cryptocurrency that aim to maintain a stable price relative to a specified asset (usually a fiat currency). Much has been written about how to use stablecoins and about the economic implications of doing so (specifically price variability), but little has been written on the technical mechanisms and architectures used and related security considerations. NIST IR 8408 addresses this by providing an evaluation of the technical design of different stablecoin architectures along with related security analyses.
