On May 7, TDR purchased more than 504 million TRX tokens with a total value of $39 million. Since then, the project has continued to buy other cryptocurrencies such as USDT and BTC.

This is TRON’s underlying algorithmic stablecoin, which is pegged to the dollar and shares many similarities with Terra’s UST.

Over the past week, May 10 TDR continues to buy another 500 BTC ($15.5 million) and nearly 600 million TRX tokens ($45.6 million) despite the “bloody week” event. ” by UST. The next day, the fund again announced to buy another 1,000 BTC worth $30 million and 1.4 billion TRX tokens worth $97 million. This can also be explained as an action to protect USDD to keep its value stable before the storm that is ravaging the stablecoin sector.
