More on the USDD situation. On June 1, TRON founder Justin Sun announced plans to implement an “over-collateralized” model for USDD. It is designed to protect the asset from the rate crash that happened earlier with the TerraUSD (UST) stablecoin. TDR will set the reserve amount for the stablecoin at 130% of the total amount of coins issued.

On June 7, TDR transferred 100 million USDT from its reserves to Binance to buy bitcoins. The organization added another 1000 BTC to secure USDD. As of June 7, TDR had 14 040,6 bitcoins, 140 million USDT, and 1,9 billion TRX on its balance sheet.
