From Stablecoins to Crypto Dollars

onboard-theme

Earlier this year, we asked When One Billion ETH Transactions? And as part of our focus on transaction growth, we began digging into the global stablecoin market — which is now sustaining >$1 billion per day in transaction value. 

To better understand the growth of the global stablecoin market, we leveraged data from Coin Metrics to create a new report:

This report details the sustained growth in transaction volumes and aggregate transaction value of the stablecoin industry. We also break out several important trends:

Stablecoins demonstrating sustained growth in transaction volume and value

  • Each of the past four months have exceeded $1.0 billion in daily aggregate transaction value. May 2020 saw daily average transaction value surpass $1.5 billion. 
  • In 2020, average daily active addresses is >88,000.

Tether’s (USDT) successful transition to Ethereum

  • In January 2019, just 1% of all USDT transaction volume occurred on Ethereum.
  • In May 2020, 88% of all USDT transaction volume – and 77% of all USDT transaction value – occurred on Ethereum. 
  • For context, USDT-ETH accounts for 16.3% of all Ethereum transactions in 2020.

DAI’s successful transition from SAI

  • In 2019, Maker averaged $775MM in monthly volume, almost entirely via SAI.
  • In 2020, Maker is averaging $1,642MM (+189%) in monthly volume, almost entirely via DAI.

Reserve-Backed Stablecoins (RBSC) transformation into Crypto Dollars

  • RBSCs include USDC, BUSD, GUSD, HUSD, TUSD, and PAX.
  • With a 6-month transaction CMGR of 32%, RBSC’s are the fastest-growing category of stablecoins.
  • RBSCs are becoming Crypto Dollars powering a new platform for global commerce.
