Liquity, an Ether backed stable coin, created in Switzerland

I talk to Micheal Svoboda, he is the COO of Liquity. Liquity is a collateralized back stable coin. It is backed by Ether. It is therefore completely different from Terra-Luna. Its closest relative is the Dai stable coin. However Liquity has 2 major advantages over Dai. First, it is interest free and second the minimum over collateralization rate is much lower, 110% compared to 150%. Micheal Svoboda describes how it works, their great success in just 2 years, regulatory issues and more.
