I have already starting accumulating HBD as I want certain portion of my portfolio to be stable. 10% APR is really decent APR if you consider the affect of compounding the APR becomes 10.41% as one would receive at least 12 payments in a year. & Who knows Koreans can still pump HBD to heights, that would be an added advantage.
If HBD becomes stable, it can really open ecommerce era on HIVE. Would you prefer to hold HBD over other stable coins? Answer this in comments.
