TUSD’s supply has surged, showing a 12.9% increase over the month, bringing its market cap to $3.1 billion. Binance usd (BUSD) has experienced a significant supply decrease of 23.8% over the same period, falling below the $3 billion mark.
With a market cap of $2.49 billion, BUSD now ranks as the fifth-largest stable token by valuation. BUSD is followed by Tron’s USDD, which has increased by 0.7% to reach $724 million. FRAX, Frax’s stablecoin, has seen its supply decrease by 16.5% in the past 30 days, resulting in a current market cap of $669 million. Pax Dollar (USDP) has decreased by 2.4% in the past month, with a market cap hovering around $492 million.
FDUSD has experienced the most significant growth, rising by 52.7% over the 30-day period. FDUSD’s market cap today is $393 million, with approximately $136.72 million in 24-hour trade volume.

In recent months, stablecoins have seen significant redemptions and lower trade volumes, similar to previous months. Presently, however, redemptions (except for BUSD) have slowed, and the market valuation of fiat-pegged tokens has stabilized. Today’s stablecoin trade volume of approximately $11.55 billion accounts for 54.07% of the day’s total trading volume across the entire crypto economy, reflecting this stability.
