On March 11, Binance announced support for TUSD, adding trading pairs with it to Bitcoin, Ethereum, BNB and USDT on the platform.

TrueUSD is a stablecoin created by the TrueFi DeFi protocol team and running on the Ethereum, TRON, and BNB Smart Chain (BSC) blockchains. The token was issued by the TrustToken platform, but it is now assumed that the founder of the TRON blockchain and the head of the Huobi exchange, Justin Sun, is now related to it.
The official TUSD website states that the token is associated with the TrustToken team. But back in 2020, its head Rafael Kosman announced that the project was sold to the Asian company Techteryx, which works with the TRON blockchain.
