    In the four-hour Tron price chart, TRX has a pretty robust resistance barrier at $0.132, which sees a confluence of the 50-bar and 200-bar SMAs. In fact, the 200-bar SMA has crossed over the 50-bar SMA to form the bearish cross, so a further drop could be in the cards, In this case, the 20-bar SMA is a crucial point of support.

    Tron issues $30.9 billion in USDT as Tether reveals reserves

    TRON founder Justin Sun took to Twitter to announce that the blockchain platform currently boasts the issuance of over $30.9 billion Tether (USDT). It’s now the largest Tether supply managed by any particular blockchain. 

    Justin Sun Tweet: TRC20-USDT Supply

    Congrats on TRC20-USDT reaching the milestone of 30 Billion, as the best-performing stablecoin with immediate transactions and free handling fees on TRON. 

    Tether is a stablecoin backed on a 1:1 basis with the USd, meaning it’s always worth $1. The stablecoin is issued on over eight other blockchains. These include Algorand, Bitcoin Cash, EOS, Ethereum, Liquid Network, Omni, Solana, and Tron, each with varying fees and settlement speeds. 

    The Tron milestone came on the back of Tether releasing its backed assets data for the first time in its nearly seven-year history. The coin’s issuer, Tether Global, has been the subject of controversy in the past years, with critics alleging Tether might be not backed by dollars at all.

    However, the breakdown shed light on the backing. It stated a bulk of Tether’s reserves were in cash, cash equivalents, or other short-term deposits, with the remainder in secured loans, corporate bonds, and ‘other’ investments.

    65.39% of the cash backing arose from an unspecified "commercial paper," while the remaining came from fiduciary deposits (24.2%), cash (3.87%), reverse repo notes (3.6%), and Treasury bills (2.94%). Tether also said part of its stablecoins were backed by Bitcoin (1.64% of its total supply) and gold (9% of its total supply).

    Tron Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

    If Tron price breaks below the 50-day SMA, the next strong support will be at the 200-day SMA ($0.0574). However, if TRX crosses over the the 20-day SMA ($0.131), it could potentially reach $0.15.
