Stablecoins have been getting widespread attention and adoption globally. Cryptocurrencies are known for their volatile nature, and amidst them, stablecoins come as a savior for many. Stablecoins are usually more stationary and are pegged to the native currency of a particular country.

Launched in July, GBPT is a stablecoin that is pegged to the British Pound Sterling (GBP). It was launched by Tether with the ticker GBPT and is pegged 1:1 to the British Pound Sterling. A new collaboration between BitcoinPoint and Poundtoken has made GBPT widely accessible to Brits.
