Neutral The Daily: Huobi Unveils HUSD, New Cryptocurrency Loans Launch

It's been a week for stablecoin stories in the crypto sphere, and while we'd like to have started the weekend on a different tack, Huobi's effort was too intriguing not to share. We'll also detail the latest cryptocurrency lending options in Saturday's edition of The Daily and consider a topical Halloween costume for bitcoiners.

Stablecoins Get Meta With HUSD

Stablecoin mania is spreading, and now it's starting to get meta. Huobi, the world's second-largest exchange by trading volume, has announced the launch of HUSD. This isn't technically a stablecoin though: it's an integrated solution that contains multiple stablecoins. The aim is to save traders from having to choose between multiple pegged coins. Many exchanges, Huobi included, now list numerous stablecoins which are often paired against one another.

Huobi explained: "When you deposit any kind of stablecoins, they will be shown as HUSD in your account. You may withdraw any kind of stablecoin ... For example, when you deposit 1 PAX, it will show as 1 HUSD in your account, and you can withdraw 1 TUSD." Given that stablecoins can generally be relied on to adhere to the U.S. dollar, the solution ought to save hassle for Huobi and its customers alike. Initially, PAX, TUSD, USDC, and GUSD will be incorporated under the HUSD umbrella. The Singapore-based exchange finished:

We look forward to more stablecoins being involved in the HUSD system. Concurrently, we will evaluate the existing stablecoins in the HUSD system on a real time basis, if the stablecoin doesn't meet the corresponding risk control standard, we will remove it.

Salt Expands Cryptocurrency Loans

The number of cryptocurrencies that can be used as collateral is growing. "Very Lending, Much Liquidity," read the email used to introduce its latest altcoin lending option. Cryptocurrency users can now deploy DOGE as collateral, along with BTC, ETH and LTC, and obtain a loan starting from $5,000. Crypto-fiat loans can be obtained for between one and 36 months, with an APR that starts at around six percent.

Crypto Twitter Goes NPC

The non-player character (NPC) meme has been inescapable this week, and it only seems fitting to sign off with crypto Twitter's take. Cryptocurrency factions never need much prompting to dehumanize and goad one another, and it was inevitable that the NPC meme, which depicts opponents as programmatic non-entities, would catch on. One Twitter user has a bitcoin-themed Halloween costume, accompanied by the sort of stock insult that an NPC might utter:

Meanwhile, a visitor to Ripple's headquarters joked that some NPC programming may have been taking place:

😂 Check out the sign in the toilets of Ripple Labs. NCP indoctrination:
