Tron working with USDT since 2019 year

In 2019, a significant event took place in the blockchain world, as Tether (USDT), one of the leading stablecoins, successfully integrated with the Tron blockchain. This integration was aimed at providing Tron users with access to a stable and widely accepted digital currency in their ecosystem. Let’s take a closer look at how this implementation went.

Tokenization on TRC-20 Standard

The first step in introducing USDT on Tron was a strategic partnership between Tether and the Tron Foundation, the organization behind the Tron blockchain. This collaboration paved the way for the successful integration of USDT into the Tron network.

To ensure compatibility with the Tron blockchain, Tether has created a version of the USDT token based on the TRC-20 standard. TRC-20 is a technical standard used for smart contracts on the Tron blockchain, similar to the widely known ERC-20 standard on Ethereum. This tokenization process has opened the way to unhindered integration and use of USDT in the Tron ecosystem.

The existing USDT tokens, which were originally issued on the Omni Layer protocol, a protocol built on the Bitcoin blockchain, have undergone a migration process. This included converting tokens from the Omni protocol to the TRC-20 standard, making them compatible with the Tron blockchain. The migration process ensured a smooth transition of USDT to the Tron network.

Tron Smart Contract Deployment and creating USDT

After creating TRC-20 USDT tokens, Tether deployed a special smart contract for Tron. This smart contract defined the rules, functionality and characteristics of the USDT token on the Tron blockchain. The deployment of this smart contract allowed unhindered interaction with USDT in the Tron ecosystem.

For widespread use and popularization, it was important to get the support of cryptocurrency exchanges and wallets compatible with the Tron blockchain. Tether actively encouraged these platforms to integrate and support TRC-20 USDT. As a result, users were able to trade, store and transfer USDT without problems on the Tron network.

User Adoption of Tron USDT and Impact 

With the integration of USDT into Tron, users within the Tron ecosystem gained access to a stable digital currency. This opened the way to various transactions, investments and the use of decentralized applications on the Tron network. The availability of USDT within Tron has led to increased acceptance and participation from traders, investors and developers, further contributing to the growth and functionality of the ecosystem.

The successful integration of USDT into the Tron blockchain in 2019 was a significant milestone for Tether and Tron. This partnership has opened up new opportunities for users within the Tron ecosystem, allowing them to use the stability and broad acceptance of USDT in their blockchain network. With the development of blockchain technology, such integrations play an important role in expanding the capabilities and applications of digital currencies in various ecosystems.
