In the past two months, tether transactions have increased significantly. More recently, however USDT Transactions on the Tron network have exceeded the number of tether transmissions on the Ethereum blockchain. Despite many more ERC20-based tethers in the wild, the minted stablecoin according to the TRC20 standard has seen a much larger number of transactions year round.
Tether (USDT) is a dominant stable coin and is used on a large number of exchanges as the token is paired with almost any digital asset that has a market value. USDT today has the third largest market cap with a valuation of $ 24.9 billion.

Although TRC20-Tethers have a larger number of shipments, the total volume of ERC20-USDTs is still twice as valuable in terms of handling.
