The stablecoin’s market capital fell by 1.30% within hours of the BUSD order. Traders are now focusing their efforts on safer options within the ecosystem because they fear that there will be more action against other stablecoins.

Circle, the US-based company behind stablecoin USDC, is being viewed as a risky proposition by regulators. This is an interesting trend. Tether, a USDT issuer, is considered safer than Circle, which is based in the US and is owned by iFinex. This is evident on-chain, as more traders prefer to park assets USDT over USDC. According to market insiders, this is affecting the US market’s ability to adopt innovation.
