Earlier this week, Loom Network (LOOM), a blockchain ecosystem for games and social apps, announced the addition of Binance Coin (BNB) as a payment option for PlasmaChain dapps. As it turns out, BNB was just the start of an ERC-20 token deluge, as Loom Network revealed Thursday that it has added support for the top-100 ERC-20 tokens by market cap on PlasmaChain.
We’ve officially added #PlasmaChain support for the top 100 ERC20 tokens.

Included in the list of ERC-20 tokens are six of the top stablecoins: USD Coin (USDC), TrueUSD (TUSD), Maker Dai (DAI), Paxos Standard Token (PAX), Gemini Dollar (GUSD) and STASIS EURS (EURS). With the integration, these stablecoins can now leverage a second-layer solution that enables fast payments with near-instant settlement, further expanding the utility the tokens.
“Stablecoins by themselves are great,” said the Loom Network team. “But integrating them into a Layer 2 like PlasmaChain is like putting stablecoins on steroids — bringing them even closer to a potentially disruptive form of online payments.”
LOOM is currently up 8.3% in the last week and 63% in the past month to $0.065555, giving the token a $49.7 million market cap.
