The newly launched stablecoin, USDD—which runs on a similar algorithm as Terra's UST—has also risen to rank among the top 100 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization in just around half a month since it launched.
As previously covered, the TRON blockchain has risen into the tally of the top three chains, per defiLlama. Its Total Value Locked (TVL) has increased by a staggering 22.37% over the last 24 hours. TRON's TVL stands at $5.34 billion at the time of publication.
TRON faced a huge spike in its TVL following the launch of Just Lend and Sun.io. In addition, the TRON ecosystem consists of USDT, USDJ, TUSD, USDC and USDD stablecoins, forming a strong base for its ecosystem.
TRON trades at $0.076, marginally up in the last 24 hours and up 10.23% since the past week.
Ankr announces RPC partnership with TRON
Ankr, a decentralized Web3 infrastructure, has announced its partnership with TRON to enable TRON developers to create scalable and secure dApps.
Ankr's TRON RPCs (Remote Procedure Calls) will enable users to connect their wallet or dApp to the TRON blockchain. This intends to act as a messenger or blockchain router that relays on-chain information between nodes, dApps and ultimately end users.
