Justin Sun swears to deploy $2 billion to save Tron’s USDD stablecoin peg.

Brief introduction: Tron is a popular blockchain-based operating system on which one can create decentralised applications and share media content. It uses a delegated proof-of-stake mechanism (DPoS), consisting of 27 Super Representatives that rotate every 6 hours to validate blocks and transactions. On the other hand, Decentralised USD (USDD) is an algorithmic stablecoin on Tron, a multipurpose smart contract blockchain, which is supposed to keep a one-to-one exchange rate to the U.S. dollar.

Why it matters:

  • Tron’s stablecoin, Decentralised USD (USDD), lost its parity to as low as $0.91 on crypto exchanges early Monday

  • Tron founder, Justin Sun, tweeted that TronDAO's reserve will deploy $2 billion to fight against “shorting” pressure

  • Soon after the tweet, he revealed that TronDAO’s reserve saw injections of 700 million USDC to defend the USDD peg
