The Tron (TRX) network has been measuring some impressive results in the past few months. One of them is the amount of stablecoin Tether (USDT) issued on it, in which it has recently overtaken Ethereum (ETH).
Specifically, the volume of TRC20-USDT issued on the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain at press time had reached a staggering 40.7 billion, as published by Tron DAO in a tweet on March 24.
This is a major achievement for Tron, as it has “once again” dethroned Ethereum as the dominant chain for USDT.
At press time, Ethereum had a total supply of 39.82 billion ERC20-USDT, which is around 800 million less than Tron, according to the data acquired by Finbold from Etherscan.
TRON deflation and increased smart contract activity
Overtaking Ethereum in the number of USDT issued is not the only recent success for Tron, according to the Twitter account of TRONSCAN, the Tron network’s block explorer, stating the “TRX has been in a state of deflation.”
The 24-hour price of the TRX cryptocurrency has seen an increase of 1.14%. Tron’s market capitalization is currently $6.6 billion.
