Stability you can trust

Known as a deposit-backed stablecoin, every digital dollar of VCAD on the internet is represented as a dollar deposit within an issuing chartered Canadian bank, so that it’s always redeemable 1:1 for CAD dollars.

VCAD is a bank-minted alternative to non-bank-issued stablecoins. VCAD will be minted exclusively by Versabank and will be redeemable on a 1:1 basis for cash from a Consortium member bank. VCAD addresses the consumer protection and regulatory concerns of non-bank issued stablecoins and offers a more secure option for transacting on blockchain.

Stablecorp is regulated as a licensed Money Services Business under FINTRAC guidance just like PayPal, Stripe, and Apple Pay.
