TUSD regains $1 parity after three-day depeg
TUSD's market cap experienced a net decline of nearly $30 million since it lost its peg on June 10.
TrueUSD (TUSD) has regained parity with the U.S. dollar.
The stablecoin lost true parity with the US Dollar on June 10 amid mounting community concerns over its minting and redemption activities.
On June 10, TUSD depegged from the $1 mark after its team paused minting activities via Prime Trust, a Nevada-based crypto custodial firm. Following the news, the stablecoin dropped to as low as $0.9957 on June 11. At press time it had just reclaimed $1.
There were speculations at the time that Prime Trust might have been insolvent as its parent company, Prime Core Technologies, had entered into a non-binding term sheet with BitGo to acquire 100% of its equity on June 8.
While TUSD maintained that its minting and redemption services remain unaffected, as its partnerships with other banking institutions remain intact, several users on its official Telegram handle have raised issues about their redemptions request as of June 13.
In response, a representative of TUSD said:
“Prime Trust will continue to process lower-volume redemptions. if you are looking for a reliable and cost-effective to redeem and wire these currencies, Flowbank may be a good choice.”
Earlier today, the TUSD team tweeted that it was “diligently working towards resuming TUSD minting on Prime Trust.”
As of press time, TUSD has yet to respond to CryptoSlate’s request for additional commentary on its minting and redemption issues.
TUSD’s market cap declines by $30M
Amid these issues, TUSD’s market cap declined by nearly $40 million since June 10 but reclaimed $10 million upon meeting parity again today. Its market cap currently stands at $2.03 billion.
As of June 9, TUSD had a market cap of $2.07 billion but dropped as low as $2.02 billion early June 13.
The TUSD dashboard shows that the embattled stablecoin account for nearly 72% of the pool’s $13.28 million reserve, while USDT made up roughly 9%. The other stablecoins in the pool make up the 20% balance.
Despite these issues, Kaiko data stated that the BTC-TUSD pair on Binance has overtaken BTC-USDT as the most traded BTC market in crypto and currently accounts for 61% of all BTC volume on the exchange.
