Stablecoin Wallets On The Rise Amid Market Uncertainty

Amid concerns of another potential crypto market retrace, there is a comforting trend: the number of non-empty stablecoin wallets is on the rise.

In 2024 alone, USDCoin (USDC) non-empty wallets have grown by 13.9%, while Tether (USDT) wallets have seen a 15.7% increase.

USDT continues to be the largest stablecoin in the cryptocurrency market. Analyzing its usage across various blockchain networks provides valuable insights:


– Volume: USDT recorded over 18 million transactions last week, nearing its all-time high.

– TRON Dominance: TRON DAO (@trondao) dominates the USDT transaction count, holding a substantial 78.3% share.

– Polygon’s Position: Polygon (@0xPolygon) ranks as the runner-up, accounting for 8.6% of all transactions.

On-Chain Volume

– Total Volume: USDT recorded a massive $140 billion in volume last week across multiple chains.

– TRON’s Leadership: TRON leads in on-chain volume with an impressive 67.11% share, thanks to its low transaction fees and high availability on major exchanges.

– Ethereum’s Share: Ethereum follows with a 28.63% share, facilitating higher-value transfers despite its higher transaction costs.

Holders and Holding Time

– Unique Addresses: TRON leads with 36 million unique addresses holding USDT, followed by Ethereum with 5.2 million addresses.

– Holding Times: Longer holding times on Ethereum and TRON indicate that USDT is being used as a store of value.

– Transactional Use: On other networks like Avalanche and Optimism, USDT is likely used more for transactional and DeFi-related applications.

These trends highlight the growing utility and adoption of stablecoins, particularly USDT, across various blockchain networks. As more users turn to stablecoins for both transactional and storage purposes, the cryptocurrency market’s resilience and stability could see further reinforcement.
