Basecoin

Basecoin, now Basis, is developing a price stable cryptocurrency also known as a stable coin.

Basecoin, now Basis, is a startup cryptocurrency company created by Intangible Labs in Hoboken, New Jersey. The founders of Basis are Josh Chen, Lawrence Diao, and Nader Al-Naji. It is designed to be robust, price-stable and backed by an algorithmic central bank that manages price volatility by pegging the value of Basis to other digital assets.



On December 13, 2018 Basis publicly announced the company will be returning all capital to its investors and will be shutting down operations due to difficulties launching of Basis in line with United States securities regulations.
