TrueUSD Names Five Banks Holding the Stablecoin’s USD Reserve

1. TUSD is currently in collaboration with five banks.
2. Partner banks provide a safeguard for TUSD’s asset security.
3. TUSD is now audited by auditing firm Armanino.

Stablecoin TrueUSD (TUSD) named five of its current bank collaborators that ensure asset security for its USD reserves.

According to TUSD, it currently works with Signature Bank, Silvergate Bank, Prime Trust, First Digital Trust, and BitGo for the safekeeping of USD assets that back the value of the stablecoin.

For one, Signature Bank is the first bank insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to launch a blockchain-based digital payments platform—Signet.

TUSD partnered with Signature Bank, a New York-based commercial firm, and was then integrated into Signet, Signature’s payment network, opening 24/7 minting services within two minutes. TUSD admitted that this development “greatly” improved its financial services for its users. Interestingly, TUSD transactions within Signet are free.

Another TUSD partner bank from 2021 is Silvergate. This financial firm became one of the first banks to set up accounts for crypto transactions and has since become known as one of the few crypto-friendly banks.

TUSD leverages the Silvergate Exchange Network (SEN), providing users with another “efficient” token minting service.

Together with SEN, TUSD reinforces its near-instant minting and redemption services with Prime Trust’s PrimeX. PrimeX enables TUSD holders to mint and redeem tokens round the clock, offering instant settlements.

Users of the stablecoin can also mint and redeem their tokens with TUSD partner First Digital Trust. Although the bank implements minimum and maximum transactions, TUSD saw this as an opportunity to provide its users with options, especially if they plan on minting or redeeming small amounts of TUSD.

TUSD is also one of the early stablecoins that crypto custodian BitGo included in its offerings. BitGo’s secure multi-signature wallets allow TUSD users to purchase the stablecoin within the wallet. 

With BitGo, users can purchase and exchange TUSD with no fee. However, a minimum amount of $1,000 worth of TUSD is required to mint and redeem.

TUSD revealed that it is exploring more ways to better its services for its users. To do so, it plans to forge relationships with more bank partners.Earlier, TUSD was reported to now be audited by Armanino, a top European auditing firm. Armanino will attest to the stability of TUSD’s smart contracts on-chain. TUSD, in turn, becomes the only stablecoin that has implemented such security standards.

Trader burns $340,000 in one minute with TrumpCoin

Trader burns $340,000 in one minute with TrumpCoin

A Memecoin investor had to pay a heavy price for his mistakes. The trader lost over 340,000 US dollars in one minute. How the faux pas could have happened.

Memecoin Trader Loses Over $340,000 in a Minute Due to Fraudulent Transaction

A memecoin trader has reportedly lost more than $340,000 in less than a minute, according to the on-chain analysis service Lookonchain on X (formerly Twitter). The incident involved two transactions on Solscan, revealing a significant financial mishap.

On June 18, the trader attempted to exchange 2,500 SOL (approximately $342,000) for the newly launched TrumpCoin (DJT) using a trading bot. However, instead of receiving the legitimate DJT tokens, the trader was duped into obtaining 92,000 fake DJT tokens created by fraudsters. These fraudulent tokens were worth significantly less than the genuine ones.

The transaction took place through a “fake” liquidity pool on Raydium. This pool was not sufficiently funded and was filled with DJT tokens created by scammers. When the trader attempted to convert the DJT tokens back to Solana, the scam became evident. Unfortunately, by this point, it was too late, and the trader’s initial 2,500 SOL had dwindled to just under 5 SOL—a loss of over $340,000. For the fake DJT tokens, the trader received only $673.

The DeFi (decentralized finance) space is rife with such scams, where fraudsters set up fake liquidity pools to exploit traders’ mistakes. Some decentralized exchanges (DEXes) issue warnings to users about these scams, but trading bots typically do not provide such alerts. This lack of warnings is especially problematic with newly launched coins, where traders can easily fall into the trap of exchanging for the wrong tokens.

This incident highlights the perils faced by crypto investors beyond the usual price volatility. The affected trader remarked on X, “Life goes on,” reflecting a resigned acceptance of the loss.

Despite this unfortunate event, the world of memecoin trading has its success stories. Some traders have achieved remarkable profits in short periods. For instance, one trader became a millionaire in just five hours, while another made a profit of $9.5 million in ten days by trading the celebrity token MOTHER, associated with US rapper Iggy Azalea.

This stark contrast between potential gains and significant losses underscores the high-risk nature of the cryptocurrency market, particularly in the memecoin sector. Investors are reminded to exercise extreme caution and conduct thorough research before engaging in such trades.

on

  • One of the first mobile games with an ecosystem designed to bridge the Web2 and Web3 worlds
  • Set in an immersive metaverse, Robot Factions intensely battle for control over vital resources in a post apocalyptic world
  • Tokens and NFTs are seamlessly integrated into the gameplay, with unique DeFi tools offering a new dimension in Web3 gaming

Leading global game developer Wemade today announced that Estonian game developer DevDream House OÜ will be launching Multiplayer Turn-based strategy game “RoboHero” on the world’s biggest blockchain game platform, WEMIX PLAY (www.wemixplay.com). Set to be launched in the first quarter of 2024, RoboHero is one of the first mobile games with an ecosystem designed for players in both the Web2 and Web3 worlds, available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

In “RoboHero”, the action unfolds in the post-apocalyptic metaverse 31337, where warring robot factions battle for resources. Players choose from one of three factions – ETER, DEUTER, or PLASMA – and three character classes – Tank, Shooter, or Sniper with different fighting styles. Each RoboHero will have unique characteristics that combine base properties, attributes, factions, classes and corresponding bonuses. “RoboHero” also features a meticulously designed character development system in which characters gain experience in battles and, upon meeting specific conditions, evolve to acquire increasingly better statistics.

Players defeat opponents in a duel by inflicting more damage or by taking control of the majority of buildings on the map. Enter story mode (Player vs Environment) and win successive missions to collect NFT items, or join multiplayer mode (Player vs Player) to fight opponents for $ROBO. “RoboHero”, a Web3-based game, offers the following key features:

  • Players can purchase RoboHero robots in RoboHero LootBoxes using $ROBO tokens.
  • Players can choose from two modes of play: Story Mode (PvE) and FightClub Mode (PvP).
    • In Story Mode, players explore new territories, battle bosses, and earn in-game tokens to upgrade their robots and equipment.
    • In FightClub Mode, players can create or join fight rooms to compete against each other for $ROBO tokens.
    • Players can participate in tournaments to compete for additional $ROBO tokens.
  • Players can purchase NFT items, such as energy boosters, helmets, legs, weapons, and grenades, on a special marketplace using $ROBO tokens.
  • Players can create an account on the Marketplace and pair it with the game to manage their robots and NFT items.

More about NFTs – Equipment, Lands, Mines, BillboardsThe game includes numerous NFT implementations, such as lands, billboards, mines and items. 

  • Equipment: Each RoboHero faction has unique equipment NFTs that increase the power, vitality or range of affiliated RoboHeroes that can be found in chests scattered around the RoboHero world. Each RoboHero has three interchangeable pieces of equipment including Helmet, Limbs Armor and Corpus Shield. Legend has it that after completing the entire set of 3 items, RoboHeroes can evolve to a higher form.
  • Lands: Lands play an important role since mines can only be generated on them, while battles and gameplay also take place on lands. They can be purchased and freely traded on the market, with landowners entitled to pooled tokens for every fight that takes place on each land NFT.
  • Mines: The game requires the use of copper, iron, titanium and precious metals (gold, silver, and platinum) in crafting equipment and weapons. As the only sources of these materials, mines play an important role in RoboHero and can be purchased or traded on the market. 
  • In-game billboard ads: RoboHero introduces a new billboard advertising model with 1,000 billboards located on buildings throughout the game landscape. Billboard owners can advertise their own social media accounts and products, or choose instead to rent the advertising space for a predetermined amount per week/month,  or sell the billboard for a profit.

“WEMIX is a great partner for us and its vast gaming industry experience will be a key factor in helping RoboHero deliver new innovations in the Web3 gaming space,” said Jakub Stefanek, CEO of RoboHero mobile game. “As developers we are very excited about the opportunity to work with such a well known company and can’t wait to create the future of Web3 games together.”
