Ethereum continues to maintain the most USDT at some $10 billion which can be used in the decentralized finance (defi) space.

Tron is now holding some $4.5 billion, a significant rise in recent months presumably due to its low fees.

While the rest are not holding much, with USDT on bitcoin’s layer Omni remaining at some $1 billion for now more than a year.
