Chain Swap: 40,000,000 USDT Minted At Tether Treasury
But the story of TRON does not end there. There are some news published today. Just a couple of hours after reporting the 450 million USDT, the Whale Alert service recorded a new movement of funds. Therefore, 40,000,000 USDT or $ 40,167,429 was minted at Tether Treasury.
The community became interested in this transaction immediately and asked Paolo Ardoino, Bitfinex CTO, to explain the movement of funds. In response, Ardoino tweeted that it was Chain Swap (ERC20 to Tron).

Recall, the co-founder of the Tron project Justin Sun officially announced the launch of the TRC20-USDT in April this year.
Therefore, the solution has several noticeable advantages, including instant and cheap transactions compared to Omni, including unlimited usage, where the token can interact with dApps and the BitTorrent ecosystem.
The partnership between the TRON blockchain platform (originally developed on the basis of Ethereum, and then declaring itself a competitor) and Tether allows the launch of the TRC20-based version of USDT. USDT is a stablecoin tied to the US dollar issued by Tether on the TRON network, which will accelerate free transactions.
TRC20 tokens are standard coins issued on the Tron network, which offers two ways to issue tokens and some advantages in specific use cases. Both tokens can be considered as native Tron analogues for ERC20.
This integration allows TRX to significantly expand the existing dApps space, improving the liquidity of DEX and the overall storage value. At the same time, the business partners of the TRON network can use the tools of the project feasible.
To date there are 3 variants of USDT token:
- based on BTC blockchain (Omni Layer protocol).
- based on ERC20: based on the ETH blockchain (ERC-20).
- based on the TRON blockchain (TRC-20).
There is a belief that the TRC20 is almost identical to the ERC20.
