Abstract: The current global trend is digitalization; however, the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry has been reluctant in embracing this change. Current strains in the supply chain caused by the on-going pandemic have heightened the need for all industries including the AEC industry to embrace digitalization, especially in the payment of goods and services. A major gap in the adoption of crypto coins / tokens is the high volatility associated with crypto coins. The proposed framework was developed qualitatively to aid in the adoption of stablecoins (USFT/BUSD) for construction payments.
