Haven Launches xBTC and Four New Private Currencies

New private assets

As part of our ongoing mission to increase usage and utility of Haven’s ecosystem today we are announcing the launch of 4 new private currencies:

  • xAUD — Australian Dollar
  • xCHF — Swiss Franc
  • xGBP — British Pound
  • xJPY — Japanese Yen

These new private currencies offer several key benefits. They appeal to users looking for stablecoins pegged to their native currency, which is incredibly useful when transacting via eCommerce gateways or direct transfers. They will also open up a broader range of options for those looking to store value.

xBTC is now live!

Following years of discussion and debate, we are also delighted to announce that xBTC is now live!

Haven has taken the concept of Bitcoin one step further: By adding privacy and the ability to convert on-chain between a choice of algorithmically pegged assets, users can experience true financial freedom.

Using new xAssets

These new assets are available right now in the CLI vault. An update is required to enable new assets on the web vault and desktop. This change will be rolled out in the next few days.

Many thanks to the community, team, and all the developers involved for helping us get to this major milestone on our journey to financial freedom.
