One of the unique things about this project is that the ambition is said to go beyond a simple trading tool and it is stated:

“The Lugh project is currently managed by @Groupe_Casino but the shareholding should open up as other major B2C players join the adventure”.

The stablecoin marks a first in that it is:

“…also the 1st time that the reserve of a stablecoin (all fiat currencies combined) has been audited by a “Big Four” firm (Deloitte, EY, KPMG, PwC)”

On the EUR-L website it also mentions that the reserve for the stablecoin is ‘stored by Société Générale and audited every month’.
