7. Ethereum (ETH) Slumps Below $1K, Is $800 The Next Support?

ETH is down nearly 9% in the past 24 hours, and is trading at $997.61, data from Etherscan shows. Its breaking of that support level is likely to signal steeper losses for the token.

The token last traded in the triple digits in Jan 2021, before a stellar rally that year.

ETH’s latest slump stems from a large position, likely Three Arrows Capital, being liquidated. The liquidation caused a high amount of ETH to be dumped on the open market.

Peer Bitcoin (BTC) just broke below the close-watched $20,000 level– one that also signals a large amount of liquidations in the token. It is unclear to what level the token will now slump.

8. USDD Still De-pegged Despite Tron DAO Reserve Injecting Billions Into It – Is This The End?

Tron’s USDD Stablecoin is still below the desired 1:1 ratio with the USD despite Justin Sun trying to stabilize it.

A few days ago, Tron’s stablecoin, USDD, experienced a tumultuous market shift that caused it to de-peg from the US Dollar. Stablecoins are designed to have a value equal to the USD but in form of crypto to facilitate easier crypto swaps on exchanges. It appears that USDDis failing at this role.

After the de-peg, Tron DAO Reserve moved to try and bring it back up. It withdrew about 2.5 billion TRX from exchanges in a bid to increase the USDD collateral and prevent further price fall of the stablecoin. However, it seems that these efforts haven’t borne any fruits.

At the time of this writing, USDD is valued at around $0.97 – according to data on CoinMarketCap.

Tron DAO Reserve has moved to calm the Tron community as panic grips USDD and TRX holders. Investors are worried that the Tron ecosystem might end up like Terra. A few weeks ago, the Terra ecosystem collapsed, leading to a complete fall of Luna and UST prices to below zero.

In a recent Twitter update, Tron DAO Reserve sought to answer a few hard questions about USDD and how the company plans to solve the problem. Apparently, USDD has over 320% collateralization, which means the coin is still in a safe zone despite the price volatility. Having enough collateral means that it cannot fall to reach a liquidation point.

“Currently, USDD has over 320% collateralization rate with USDC 1,080,000,000 / TRX 10,874,566,176 / BTC 14,040.6 / USDT 140,013,886.”
