What is TrustToken USD (TUSD)

Core Features of TUSD

As the first USD-backed stablecoin in history to create the US Trust & 3rd party accounting firm stablecoin mode, TUSD specifically distinguishes itself from Tether (another USD-backed stablecoin) on the following characteristics:

  • TrueUSD fees collected by exchanges are redeemable (for USD) for zero fees, as opposed to paying 7-10% fees for Tether. This can generate high amounts of revenue for TUSD exchange partners.
  • Tether is currently unable to provide auditors or investigators with clean books. TrueUSD, on the other hand, decreases exchanges’ risk exposure and potential liability.

Similar to other stablecoins, users who wish to own or trade TUSD are asked to pass a KYC/AML identity verification followed by an Ethereum wallet verification if one wishes to obtain TUSD directly from the TrustToken Defi Platform.

TrueUSD Tokenomics

There is a total supply of 253,000,000 TrueUSD tokens that is pegged 1:1 to USD in the Trust Token Reserve. There is an expectation as well that the supply will continue to grow if the platform/system is sustainably profitable and that increased enthusiasm of investors will be able to generate the issuing of more TUSD tokens.

At the time writing ,TUSD has an estimated market cap of $1,189,877,812 and a fully diluted market cap of $1,227,561,464.
