A sharp increase in activity in the stablecoin market is taking place against the background of the bitcoin rally above $11,000.

The head of the analytical service Crypto Quant, Kai Yang Ju, drew attention to the fact that stablecoins-whales transfer a significant part of stable coins to exchanges. He added that exactly the same thing is done by bitcoin whales. According to the expert, the "battle" between these market participants will determine the further trend of the first cryptocurrency.

In mid-July, the total amount of transmitted value in stablecoins exceeded the same indicator of bitcoin for the first time. The leadership was made possible due to a higher turnover ratio, which exceeds similar indicators of BTC and ETH, as well as due to the issue of stable coins.

A week ago, the capitalization of Tether was fixed at a level above $10 billion. Earlier, ForkLog reported that its Issuer authorized the issue of 540 million new usdt tokens over the past seven days.

According to the tether website, $6.39 billion of usdt's total market offer of $10.94 billion has been issued on the Ethereum blockchain. The figure in The tron network reached $3.45 billion. According to Messari estimates, 65% of the total issue of all stable coins is issued on Ethereum.
