Introducing cgUSD

The cgUSD token, an ERC20 rebasing token, is backed by US Treasury bills. Every New York banking day, the total issuance of cgUSD aligns with the net value of its asset portfolio, encompassing on-chain stablecoins, the market value of U.S. Treasury Bills, and accrued interest. This mechanism ensures that Cygnus Finance consistently maintains a 1:1 redemption ratio between cgUSD and USDC. In the secondary market, similar to other fiat-backed stablecoins, we anticipate a 1:~1 correlation in price, driven by arbitrage opportunities.
