As Terra’s Stablecoin Explodes, Tron’s Algorithmic Dollar-Pinched Crypto Project Acquires Millions of Values ​​of Tron, Bitcoin, and Tether to Defend USDD

Over the past week, all eyes have been focused on the Terra blockchain and native crypto assets LUNA and UST. Both cryptocurrencies were significantly bombarded in USD value, with more than $46 billion in value disappearing from the crypto economy in about three days. Amid all this carnage, Tron DAO Reserve continued to buy crypto assets for digital currency-backed forex reserves. On May 7, Bitcoin.com News reported that Tron founder Justin Sun and Tron DAO Reserve have purchased tron ​​(TRX) for $38 million.

Since then, the project has continued to buy crypto amid the market carnage caused by the UST fallout. Tron’s stablecoin USDD is also an algorithmic dollar-pegged crypto asset with similarities to Terra’s UST. After purchasing 504.6 million tron ​​(TRX), Tron DAO Reserve tweeted out He said the team aims to “protect the overall blockchain industry and market, prevent panic trading caused by financial crises, and mitigate serious and long-term economic downturns.” Tron DAO Reserve (TDR) also added:

Tron’s Justin Sun ‘Still Believes in Algorithmic Stable Coins’

Currently, as of Saturday, May 14, 2022, the USDD stablecoin has a market cap of approximately $272.36 million, with 271.438,207 USDD in circulation at the time of this writing. The past day, USDD saw $85.5 million in global trading volume, making it the 156th largest market cap of the crypto asset.

Similar to the Terra blockchain’s mechanism to burn LUNA to generate UST, issuing a single USDD costs $1 worth of trona to issue the crypto asset. This means that it can grow as much as the market allows, as it allows anyone to mint the stablecoin without permission. However, with the market turmoil caused by the UST de-pegging event, it’s safe to say that the crypto community is wary of algorithmic stablecoin assets.

Despite the problems last week, Tron founder Justin Sun spoke to Tracy Wang of Coindesk and said he is still optimistic about the algorithmic stablecoin model. “I still believe in algorithmic stablecoins,” Sun told Wang during a Zoom interview.
