TrueUSD (TUSD) Officially Launches on Binance with Increased Supply
USDT
TUSD

TrueUSD (TUSD) kept its dollar peg, only rising slightly to $1.02, at the launch of official Binance trading. At one point, the asset spiked to $1.10, but quickly corrected its position. This time, the spike was much lower, while a few days ago the price of TUSD was distorted by bots to as high as $1.30.

TUSD volumes have risen to around $12 million in 24 hours. At the launch of Binance trading, the asset also saw its supply increase to more than 18 million tokens - a significant growth in the past months, given that TUSD launched with around 4 million tokens.

Because of its pairings, TUSD will not inject liquidity into many altcoin markets, the way USDT does now. TUSD will be instead a hedge against volatility. During market downturns, various tokens are sometimes used to store value if Bitcoin prices start sinking. It is possible that TUSD serves that function.

Binance Coin (BNB) is also used as a source of liquidity, but its fluctuating price complicates trading decisions. BNB is at $14.34, near its peak in BTC prices after the leading digital coin slid nearer to $8,000 again.

TUSD trading is yet to take off, and so far, daily volumes are lower than the total supply. As for Tethers, their share of crypto trading is stabilized at 15%, and the total supply is traded more than once every 24 hours.

TUSD tokens are only generated when users buy new ones with cash through the app - although sometimes, purchases are put in batches.

For now, the supply has only increased, and the team has foreseen the token being sent to other exchanges. Now that USDT minting has stopped, the new fixed-price token is a fiat on-ramp for buyers willing to get into crypto coins. An additional $12 million in trading is a drop in the bucket for Bitcoin, but in the future, TUSD may play its part in increasing liquidity and trading.

EOS Price: Solid Double-Digit Percentile Gains Paint Interesting Outlook
It is oddly refreshing to see all cryptocurrency markets in the green after another troubling weekend. With all currencies losing anywhere from 4% to 25% between Friday afternoon and Sunday evening, things were not looking good by any means. If the EOS price is any indication, those losses will be recovered fairly quickly. EOS Price Rises Again As is usually the case when all cryptocurrency markets lose a lot of value, the underlying reason is anything but obvious. This past weekend was no different in that regard, as all markets suffered fro

Secret Service seeks Congress help in anonymous crypto crackdown
It appears that the U.S. Secret Service is not too happy with the operation of anonymous cryptocurrencies such as Monero and Zcash. There has been some indication that the department wants to start cracking down on the privacy-oriented digital coins due to the fact that they might be used for illicit activities. Robert Novy, deputy assistant director in the U.S. Secret Service’s Office of Investigations, asked the Congress last week for assistance in preventing cryptocurrencies such as Monero and Zcash since these have enhanced privacy and an

Bitcoin (BTC) took a trip to hell and apparently made it back last night when a fall below $6,000 took many by surprise. Fortunately, Bitcoin (BTC) formed a doji just above the support line which pumped back some life into the cryptocurrency and pushed it back above $6,200. The price currently trades at $6,223 with an oversold RSI on the daily chart. Bitcoin (BTC) has also succeeded in forming a green candle right after the doji, which has convinced many market analysts that this correction might be over. Continue reading Has Bitcoin (BTC) R

McAfee Resurfaces After Alleged Assassination Attempt

However, the events of the past few days have certainly been out of the ordinary, to say the least, even for a man like McAfee.
