What is a Himalaya coin?
The Himalaya Dollar (HDO) is an Ethereum-based ERC-1404 token that has backward compatibility with the ERC-20. Our stable coin is fixed to the United States Dollar (USD) with the backing of a Reserve consisting of USD and cash-equivalent assets. While the market price of the Himalaya Coin may fluctuate, Himalaya Dollar’s USD fixed value offers a haven for both traders and investors. HCN and HDO will be exchangeable via Himalaya Pay and also through the relevant trading markets at the Himalaya Exchange.
Why does Bannon favor Himalaya coin?
Bannon has waged a public campaign against the Chinese government for years. Comments last week from Bannon indicate this is the latest front in that battle. Himalaya Coin’s debut this month also stands out because China widened its crackdown on the use of cryptocurrencies in September.
During an interview, Bannon called Himalaya Coin’s debut “monumental” and put it in the context of his fight against China. “If you look at the institutionalization of the counteroffensive to the Chinese Communist Party, it’s pretty impressive,” Bannon said.
