What is Reserve Rights (RSR)?

The Reserve Rights' dual token setup includes a stablecoin known as the Reserve stablecoin (RSV), backed by a basket of assets managed by smart contracts. The second token is the Reserve Rights token (RSR), which is used to keep the RSV stable at its $1.00 price target through a system of arbitrage opportunities.

Unlike RSV, the Reserve Rights (RSR) token is volatile, and its main purpose is to help maintain the stability of RSV. It can also be used to vote on governance proposals - helping holders shape the future of the Reserve Rights ecosystem.

Reserve's goal is to build a stable, decentralized and asset-backed cryptocurrency to serve as a digital currency. All this with project scalability using 100% collateral. The goal is to create a universal value that is resistant to unreliable banks and hyperinflation.

How does Reserve Rights work?

Unlike other stablecoins that are normally backed by U.S. dollars (USD) held in reserve in a bank account controlled by the stablecoin issuer or a trusted custodian, Reserve stablecoins are backed by a basket of cryptocurrencies managed by smart contracts.

This basket initially consists of Ethereum stablecoin assets, including USD Coin (USDC), True USD (TUSD) and Paxos (PAX). Still, there are plans to later transition to a more diverse basket, including fiat currencies, securities, commodities and complex asset types, like synthetics and derivatives.

Arguably Reserve's major defining feature is its Reserve Rights token (RSR), which is minted and sold when the RSV stablecoin loses its peg with the U.S. dollar. The funds generated by selling RSR tokens are used to replenish the RSV collateral pool. In contrast, when RSV is valued at above $1, the additional collateral will be used to purchase and burn RSR from the secondary market, driving down the supply.

Arbitrageurs can benefit from this mechanism when RSV is valued at above $1.00, by buying RSV at $1.00 from the Reserve smart contract using RSR, and then selling it at the current market price to net the difference as profit. This option is only available to RSR holders and is currently one of the main drivers for holding RSR tokens.
