Seven days ago, Bitcoin.com News reported that the Tron DAO Reserve purchased $38 million in tron ​​to secure the network’s stablecoin USDD. Since then, and since the terrausd (UST) decoupling event, the Tron DAO Reserve has continued to purchase large amounts of digital assets to back the project’s reserves. In addition to buying tron, the group has also been adding stablecoins and bitcoin to the mix.

When Terra’s Stablecoin Crashes, Tron’s Algorithmically U.S. Dollar-Pegged Crypto Project Buys Millions of Tron, Bitcoin, and Tether to Defend USDD

Over the past week, all eyes have been on the Terra blockchain and its native crypto assets, LUNA and UST. Both coins saw their dollar value plummet, with more than $46 billion worth of value vanishing from the cryptoeconomy in about three days. Amid all the carnage, Tron DAO Reserve continued to buy crypto assets for its digital currency-based foreign exchange reserves. On May 7, Bitcoin.com News reported that Tron founder Justin Sun and the Tron DAO Reserve purchased $38 million in tron ​​(TRX).

Since then, the project has continued to buy cryptocurrencies amid the market carnage due to the UST influence. Tron’s stablecoin USDD is also an algorithmically pegged cryptoasset to the U.S. dollar, with similarities to Terra’s UST. Tron DAO Reserve after buying 504.6 million tron ​​(TRX) tweet The team’s goal is to “protect the entire blockchain industry and market from panic trading caused by the financial crisis and mitigate a severe and prolonged recession.” The Tron DAO Reserve (TDR) further added:

We also manage the authority of USDD as its early custodian and ensure its price stability through reserves.

After purchasing 504.6 million trons, TDR continued to add funds to reserves over the past week. “To protect the entire blockchain industry and the crypto market, Tron DAO Reserve purchased 500 BTC at an average price of $15,515,675 at an average price of $31,031.35,” TDR detailed May 10th. On the same day, TDR said It purchased 595,729,832 trons for $45.6 million.While the cryptocurrency market was chaotic that day, the TDR team famous “The dollar held steady amid today’s market volatility.”

The next day, May 11, the TDR team tweet: “In order to protect the entire blockchain industry and the crypto market, [TDR] 1,000 BTC were purchased at an average price of $30,096,000 at an average price of $30,096. ” After the purchase, the TDR organization purchase 1,467,612,695 TRX with a reserve of $97 million. After buying $97 million worth of tron, TDR started buying stablecoins. TDR team explain May 12:

In order to protect the entire blockchain industry and the crypto market, [TDR] Buy 100,000,000 USDT at an average price of $98,200,000 at $0.982.

The TDR team didn’t stop there, but continued to buy more tokens to protect the Tron network’s stablecoin USDD. TDR said on May 12, Buy $200 million, or $0.985 per unit, which adds up to about $197 million.Tron-based stablecoin reserve team purchase 1,249.57 BTC, with an average price of around $29,394.

Tron’s Justin Sun “still in algorithmic stablecoins”

Currently, the USD stablecoin has a market valuation of approximately $272.36 million on Saturday, May 14, 2022, with a circulating supply of $271,438,207 at the time of writing. In the past day, USDD’s global trading volume was $85.5 million, and the crypto asset was ranked 156th by market cap.

Similar to how the Terra blockchain burns LUNA to produce UST, to mint one USDD, it takes $1 worth of tron ​​to the cryptoasset. This means it can grow as much as the market allows, as it allows anyone to mint stablecoins in a permissionless manner. However, with the market volatility caused by the UST decoupling event, it is safe to say that the crypto community is wary of algorithmic stablecoin assets.

Despite these issues last week, Tron founder Justin Sun spoke with Coindesk’s Tracy Wang, who said he remains optimistic about the algorithmic stablecoin model. “I still believe in algorithmic stablecoins,” Sun explained to Wang in a Zoom interview.
