Seven days ago, Bitcoin.com News reported on the Tron DAO Reserve purchasing $38 million in tron to safeguard the network’s stablecoin USDD. Since then and since the terrausd (UST) de-pegging event, the Tron DAO Reserve has continued to purchase large quantities of digital assets to bolster the project’s reserves. In addition to the tron purchases, the organization has been adding stablecoins and bitcoin into the mix as well.
We also manage the permissions of USDD as its early custodian and ensure its price stability with reserves.
To safeguard the overall blockchain industry and crypto market, [TDR] have bought 100,000,000 USDT with an average price of $0.982 with $98,200,000.
Currently, on Saturday, May 14, 2022, the USDD stablecoin has a market valuation of around $272.36 million and there are 271,438,207 USDD in circulation at the time of writing. During the past day, USDD has seen $85.5 million in global trade volume and the crypto asset is 156th largest market cap.
Similar to the Terra blockchain’s mechanism of burning LUNA to produce UST, to mint a single USDD it costs $1 worth of tron to issue the crypto asset. This means it can grow as large as the market allows it as it allows anyone to mint the stablecoin in a permissionless manner. However, with the market turmoil that took place because of the UST de-pegging event, it is safe to say the crypto community is leery of algorithmic stablecoin assets.
