Binance USD (BUSD), the stablecoin issued by the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, has seen its market capitalization surge over the last few months amidst what is now referred to as the “Second Great Stablecoin War.”

BUSD Market Cap Surges

BUSD is beginning to reap the benefits of the aggressive move embarked on by Binance. In September, Binance announced it was delisting several stablecoins, including Circle’s USDC.

The move was aimed at increasing the utility and supply of Binance’s stablecoin. The move has paid off, as the supply of BUSD has crossed $20 billion for the first time ever.

In the last two months, the market cap of BUSD has spiked by 22% in the predominantly bearish market. At the start of the year BUSD’s market cap fell under $14 billion, but now stands at $21.63 billion.

BUSD Claims a Higher Stablecoin Market Share

Not only has the market cap of BUSD spiked, its stablecoin market share has also reached 15.48% of the overall $140 billion total market supply. Additionally, BUSD has achieved 22% of the stablecoin trade dominance.

According to Sam Bankman Fried, CEO of FTX, the change in supply is due to Binance’s aggressive move and marks the beginning of the “Second Great Stablecoin War.”

On the Flipside

  • Following its delisting from Binance, Circle has begun plans to launch its USDC on five new blockchains to increase the adoption of the stablecoin.

Why You Should Care

As stablecoins become a crucial component of the cryptocurrency market, Binance wants its BUSD to be bigger than its two leading competitors, USDT and USDC.
