Asian owner to fully control stablecoin TrueUSD. Techteryx Finally Assumes Control Of TrueUSD

In December 2020, Techteryx acquired ownership of TUSD and hired Archblock to continue managing the stablecoin's operations. During the two-year period in which Archblock served as TUSD's operator, Techteryx focused on expanding the token's use cases in global markets.

Recently, Archblock has begun transferring control to Techteryx, marking the final stage of TUSD's international transition. Techteryx will assume full management of all aspects of the stablecoin's operation, including mining and redemptions, customer onboarding and compliance, fiat reserve conservation, and banking and fiduciary relationships.

Archblock will continue to support US-based TUSD users during the transition period, with Techteryx providing guidance and updates as needed.

TUSD has gained attention, particularly after Binance's recent promotion of the stablecoin. Binance minted $1 billion worth of TUSD on the Tron network a week before announcing a TUSD zero-maker fee promotion for spot and margin trading pairs on June 21.

As of now, Binance accounts for more than 68% of TUSD's circulating supply, estimated at $1.92 billion. With a market cap value of $2.8 billion, TrueUSD currently ranks as the fifth-largest stablecoin and the 27th largest cryptocurrency, according to data by Coingecko.
