Pegged currency

This is a currency where the value is designed to remain the same as a designated asset. In the cryptocurrency world, the term “pegged” usually stands for a digital currency with its price connected directly to the price of a stable conventional currency, such as USD or EUR. A pegged cryptocurrency is also referred to as a stablecoin.
