How are Kollider synthetic stablecoins different from Taro?#

Kollider's synthetic stablecoins offer users fiat-denominated price stability through the use of hedging on our derivatives exchange. Taro, which is still in developement, is a protocol for asset issuance. This means that Taro will allow for the tokenization of a number of different stablecoin types on the Lightning Network. We're keeping an active eye on Taro and will explore integrating it as new developments occur.
