The TRON (TRX) blockchain has launched its algorithmic stablecoin called USDD, promising it to be the most decentralized stablecoin ever.
What is a stablecoin?
It is a cryptocurrency created to keep its value stable in the face of market volatility, reducing the financial risk to its holders.
USDD was created to develop a modern decentralized financial system on the blockchain. The stablecoin has also been issued on the Ethereum network, Binance Smart Chain, and BitTorrent Chain. The launch of USDD saw TRX enter the Top 17 on CoinMarketCap, after it gained just over 31% during the current week.
