Also joining Coinbase is Gemini USD, a stablecoin created by the Gemini cryptocurrency exchange which aims to peg its value to the US dollar.

According to the project website, not only can users trade their dollars 1-to-1 for GUSD, but the altcoin can also be used to swap for other crypto assets on decentralized exchanges (DEXs).
