Binance supports major stablecoins

Binance currently supports the most widely accepted stablecoins and is also one of the biggest holders of Tether (USDT), the most widely used dollar-pegged coin. The exchange has already issued a British pound-backed stablecoin to work on its decentralized exchange, Binance DEX.

Due to the high trading volumes on Binance, stablecoins have increased their turnover in total. Moreover, high demand led to each PAX coin turning over 1.3 times in a 24-hour period. TrueUSD (TUSD) moves 1.69 times each day, meaning the coins’ entire supply might grow to meet demand.

Smaller stablecoins backed by US dollars are often used as a fiat off-ramp for USDT, which is still not directly redeemable. Currently, redemptions have lowered the supply of Gemini USD (GUSD) down to around 9 million coins. Other stablecoins have grown their supply more significantly, with USDC carrying more than 450 million coins.

What is BUSD?

If you are wondering what is BUSD, it is a stable coin pegged to USD that has received approval from the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS).

What is the difference between BUSD and USDt?

While BUSD and USDt are very similar to each other from the purpose perspective there are many distinct differences for these two stable coins.

BUSD is only the latest stablecoin whose reserves are being held by Paxos, a New York and Singapore based regulated financial institution building infrastructure to enable movement between physical and digital assets. The BUSD meanwhile is the first stable coin to be approved by the NYDFS.

Meanwhile, USDt also known as Tether is 100% backed by tether reserves.

How to buy BUSD?

Is BUSD an ERC20 token or Binance Chain token?
