State of Stablecoins Market
Despite the increase in the number of stablecoins in 2019, Tether dominance has increased from 72.2% to 82.5%.
Tether is the most liquid stablecoin at the moment despite claims of ‘fractional banking’ and legal issues around its parent company iFinex and the cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex.
Also, Tether has launched Its Gold-Backed Stablecoin $XAUT, its current market cap: $ 6,299,545
The second and quite strong position, continues to hold stablecoin USDC, whose dominance decreased from 11.6% to 7.9%, market cap: $ 443,365,724.
The third-place goes to Paxos. Its market share dropped from 4.9% to 3.7%. Market Cap: $209,589,284
Among the top gainers, the one that stands out is Multi-collateral DAI.🔥🔥. DAI is a token of the Maker Protocol, which includes the Dai Savings Rate (DSR) and additional collateral asset types. This token was launched in the second half of 2019 and has almost replaced Single Collateral DAI.
Binance stablecoin(BUSD) was also launched in the second half of 2019, but so far, it managed to capture just 0.4% of the market share, but the trend is positive.
Other players are also entering the market, but their share is still small, so we have not mentioned them in this report.

– Central bank digital currencies (CBDCs)
– Big tech companies
– Banks and financial institutions
Even the G7 issued a report on stablecoins – G7 Working Group on Stablecoins
A successful launch of new stablecoins will certainly have a positive impact on crypto adoption and on the price of cryptocurrencies.
