In a recent official statement on May 30th, Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, revealed that TrueUSD (TUSD) would be integrated with three new trading pairs. The announcement outlined the addition of Litecoin (LTC), Cardano (ADA), and Binance USD (BUSD) as pairs linked with the stablecoin.
While the inclusion of ADA and LTC as TUSD pairs may seem expected due to their growing popularity, the addition of BUSD comes as a surprise. BUSD was undergoing a phase-out season, making its inclusion an interesting development.
The decision to add ADA and LTC as TUSD trading pairs likely stems from the increasing volume and interest in these cryptocurrencies. At the time of writing, ADA’s trading volume had reached 177.9 million, while Litecoin’s volume rose as high as 429 million.
TUSD’s volume has also experienced a significant surge, reaching $1.9 billion, one of its highest levels since gaining attention earlier this year. Volume is an important indicator of market sentiment and can help predict bullish or bearish outcomes.
The rise in volume for ADA and LTC, along with TUSD, suggests that many market participants hold a bullish view on these assets. This positive sentiment could contribute to TUSD’s adoption, provided these trends continue.
However, despite Binance’s reputation as the world’s largest exchange, the introduction of these new trading pairs does not guarantee a significant change in TUSD’s market cap position. TUSD still faces competition from other stablecoins such as Tether (USDT) and Circle (USDC).
Currently, TUSD ranks as the 31st largest asset in terms of market capitalization, with its market cap surpassing $2 billion. The stablecoin’s growth has attracted the attention of the crypto community, which has been exploring alternatives to traditional options.
Analyzing social dominance, TUSD accounted for 0.042% of discussions around assets in the top 100, indicating a decline in hype compared to earlier in May.
Furthermore, the supply of TUSD on exchanges has seen a substantial decrease since May 2nd, currently standing at 448.58 million. This metric represents the number of TUSD coins stored in centralized exchange wallets. A decrease in supply suggests coins are being withdrawn from these platforms, while a high metric indicates potential increased trading activity.
While the new trading pairs on Binance provide exciting opportunities for TUSD and its associated assets, it remains to be seen how these developments will impact TUSD’s market position. As the stablecoin continues to attract attention and compete with other prominent stablecoins, the crypto community eagerly awaits the outcome.
