Another 'algorithmic' stablecoin has fallen below its $1 peg — but experts say it's not 'Terra 2.0'

Quick Summary

USDD, a so-called "algorithmic" stablecoin that's meant to always be worth $1, plunged as low as 93 cents on Sunday.

For one, USDD is nowhere near the scale of Terra, whose UST and luna tokens reached a combined value of $60 billion at their height.

USDD was created by Justin Sun, the outspoken crypto entrepreneur behind Tron, a blockchain that's trying to compete with Ethereum.
