The world’s largest stablecoin, Tether (USDT), is expanding beyond the Bitcoin-based Omni protocol and Ethereum (ETH) blockchain to join the TRON (TRX) network.

According to the announcement, the new TRC-20-based USDT will enable interoperability between TRON-based protocols and decentralized applications while enabling users to transact with fiat pegged currencies across the TRON network.

In the announcement, Tether CEO Jean-Louis van der Velde said, “We are pleased to announce this collaboration with the Tron Foundation. This integration underlines our commitment to furthering innovation within the cryptocurrency space as we continue to anticipate the needs and demands of the digital asset community.”

Tron CEO Justin Sun added, “collaboration with Tether to bring a USDT TRC-20 token to TRON will bring incredible stability and confidence to users.”
