Meanwhile, TUSD’s total stablecoin supply recently crossed the $2 billion mark. Stablecoin is one of the biggest winners from the recent troubles plaguing rivals such as Binance USD (BUSD) and USD Coin (USDC).

The Tron-based algorithmic stablecoin USDD is the third prominent stablecoin on the network. USDD has a market cap of $534.01 million after rising 5% in the past month.

On the other hand, USDC’s recent untying significantly affected its supply on the Tron network. The Circle-issued stablecoin fell about 60% in the last 30 days to $440.5 million. Other stablecoins on the network include USDJ and HUSD.

Justin Sun Eyes $60 billion

Tron founder Justin Sun said the blockchain network wants to grow its stablecoin market cap to $60 billion by the end of the year.

In a March 17 Twitter thread, Sun said the blockchain was working to improve its infrastructure to achieve this growth. According to him, the network is “innovative” so that users can have a “secure, reliable and efficient platform to carry out their transactions.”

Speaking about the current issues confounding the industry, Sun noted that the crypto market has had its fair share of challenges in the current year. But his team is committed to cultivating the five stablecoins on their network.

“Despite the challenges ahead, we are excited to play our part in nurturing the global stablecoin market, contributing to the development of DeFi and shaping the future of finance,” he added.
