USDT tokens only behind Tether on Ethereum ecosystem
There is no denying that the amount of USDT that is about to be transferred into the ecosystem of the second-largest crypto asset by market cap seems to be the largest in recent time. While this transfer might seem to be a one-off, they, however, are quite common as Ethereum is quite a popular base for Justin Sun’s blockchain native token.
Tether’s transparency page says over $15 billion worth of the asset is currently in circulation on ETH. Tron is next in line with over $10 billion worth of USDT circulating on it.
USDT is also available on Omni chain and it also can be found on EOS, Liquid, Algorand and SLP blockchains.
