Tron-USDT Goes Live on Mainnet, Receives Support from Top Exchanges
— Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) April 11, 2019
Tron-USDT is already supported by top cryptocurrency exchanges viz. Bitfinex, Huobi Global, and OKEx.
A number of other platforms like Gate.io, BitForex, Bitpie, ZB.com, DragonEx, TRX Market, BigOne, Coinsuper, CoinTiger, Bit-Z, ExShell, BTex, Bitasset, Biki.com, VenaPi, and Ddex also support Tron-USDT along with Tron Link wallet, Huobi Wallet, and Math wallet.
Recently, Tron also partnered with Swarm, a blockchain-based development firm that provides fee-free tokenization of assets. Through this collaboration, financial service providers with ‘proper licensing’ will be allowed to launch security tokens on Tron blockchain. Moreover, according to Philipp Pieper, the co-founder and CEO of Swarm, investors will use Tron-USDT and TRX to purchase security tokens.
Celebrating The Cooperation
Recently, Tron Foundation announced that it will be giving back to its community to celebrate the cooperation between Tron and the largest stablecoin Tether (USDT). Sun had said that they plan to give 20 million dollars in USDT-Tron to the early adopters.
“This just like the TRX – BTT airdrop we have been doing before… We just airdrop assets to those addresses without touching any of the assets at all.”
Previously, Tether has been built on Omni that is based on the Bitcoin network. Sun has repeatedly sad Tron is a better choice than Omni or Ethereum because of its speed, cost-effectiveness, and reliability. This according to Sun makes Tron the best choice for stablecoins development from which the whole blockchain community would be benefitted.
Tron and Tether partnership began in March 2019 that is expected to bring more developers into the fold by mitigating the risk of volatility through a fiat-backed cryptocurrency. Moreover, Tron is eyeing institutional investment as Sun has stated that they are already receiving tremendous demand from institutions.
