Binance BUSD Trading Volume Surges By 70%, What Is The Reason?

Long-term investors have found hope with the introduction of stablecoins such as BUSD to cryptocurrency. Stablecoins are a great way to sail for people who have doubts about crypto due to the volatility.

The stablecoins have a name that refers to their ability to hold the value of stablecoins in real time. Some are also pegged to cash and tangible assets that help them stay stable.

However, the crumbling of TerraUSD UST, an algorithmic stablecoin and its native token LUNA created a large hole in the market for stablecoins. Many investors were able to see the new paradigm of what stablecoin means. Many crypto assets suffered massive losses as well as investors.

People have been warming up to stablecoins recently, thankfully. The Binance USD (BUSD), the world’s third largest stablecoin, is significantly impacting the crypto space. The trading volume of the BUSD increased by 70% over Tuesday. The largest 24-hour trading volume ever recorded is BUSD.

Binance announced that it was going to attack USDC in an attempt to expand both its utility and reach. USDC, the market leader in stablecoins, has a market value of approximately $51.8 million. USDC is aiming to surpass USDT and become the most popular stablecoin.

USDC was praised for its best support after the destruction of Terra.
