According to the “tradition”, altcoins grow along with digital gold:
It is noteworthy that against the backdrop of a sharp recovery in the market, the stablecoin Tether lost parity with the underlying American dollar.
Earlier, BlockchainJournal reported on large transactions with Tron (TRX) related to the migration of USDT tokens from one blockchain to another and, presumably, with an increase in the market offer of Tether itself.
Also earlier today , a statement was announced by President Xi Jinping in support of blockchain technology. It is possible that it had a positive effect on market sentiment.
