Many experts consider Tether-made USDT the biggest and the most reliable stablecoin in the market. It occupies position #8 on the CoinMarketCap ranking with a market cap of $2 845 256 045.
Following the recent collaboration of Tether and Tron, the former is issuing new, Tron-powered USDT, with Justin Sun now offering everyone the opportunity to exchange the old-protocol USDT to USDT-Tron.
Justin Sun promises that the new USDT coins can be used with all Tron dApps. Besides, transactions with these stablecoins will be much faster, promises Sun. They will also be free.
Old USDT tokens can be swapped for new ones on various exchanges among which are Huobi Global, OKEx, etc.
Two Tether versions will go together
It has been reported that a part of the USDT-Omni supply will remain unchanged and will not migrate to Tron. Some trading platforms, such as Poloniex, have publicly said that they would support both USDT and USDT-Tron.
