“The massive selloff of TUSD reveals panic for its holders over the uncertainties of its reserves and instability related to Poloniex. After a recent hacking incident that targeted Poloniex, TUSD holders find themselves in an increasingly difficult situation to find stability with the USD-pegged stablecoin,” Nick Ruck, chief operating officer of ContentFi Labs, told The Block.

“It feels like such a little catalyst, but with the recent announcement of MANTA in Binance’s launchpool program and the need to stake BNB or FDUSD — at the expense of other stablecoins like TUSD that might have been used in the past for launchpool staking — it seems that a horde of investors are selling the latter for the former,” said Justin d’Anethan, head of APAC business development of crypto market maker Keyrock.
