Spread the love

Today it was announced that TrueUSD (TUSD), a fully-backed stablecoin attested independently live and on-chain, is launching the first USD stablecoin on the Avalanche blockchain platform in Q1 2021.

By launching on Avalanche, TrueUSD users will be able to send and receive the stablecoin with sub-second finality, and transaction fees that are just fractions of a cent. It will also provide traders the fastest way to get fiat-equivalent currencies in and out of exchanges, rendering it suitable for arbitrage, high-frequency trading, and other low-latency use cases.

TrueUSD is one of multiple TrueCurrencies built by TrustToken, which include TGBP, THKD, TCAD, and TAUD. Collectively, TrustToken currencies trade on over 100 exchanges and OTC desks, generating billions of dollars in monthly volume across more than 150 countries.

“U.S. Dollar liquidity is vital to thriving DeFi ecosystems, and we’re excited to bring one of the most trusted and widely-used stablecoins onto Avalanche,” says John Wu, President of Ava Labs. “TrueUSD on Avalanche will be a vital component of a new wave of stablecoin applications and products that are only possible with near-instant finality.”
