On Saturday, the Blockonix dex took to its official Twitter account to let the crypto community know that it is going to launch trading pairs with the TrueUSD stablecoin.

The dollar-pegged TrueUSD coin will be traded against ETH and Tether (USDT), another stablecoin, which is currently on the top-ten list of coins and has been recently called by a research ‘the best stablecoin’.

TUSD market stance

Currently, TrueUSD is a member of the list of top-30 crypto assets, where it sits in position #27. With the market cap totalling $208 525 593, the stablecoin is presently trading at $1.01, having lost 0.33 percent over the last 24 hours.

At the time of writing, TrueUSD, as well as USD Coin and Paxos Standard Token (all three are stablecoins), are trading in the red, whereas Maker, Dai and Gemini Dollar are rising.

This summer, the famous leader of opinions in the crypto sphere, John McAfee, expressed his deeply negative position against centralized exchanges on Twitter, saying that they will disappear in the future. A discussion with the Binance CEO then followed.

There are cases when users lost their entire balances on such exchanges, claiming to have been robbed. A while ago, U.Today reported about one such case regarding Binance.
