TrueUSD is a stablecoin created by TrustToken which is pegged to the US Dollar. It is an ERC-20 token issued on the Ethereum (ETH) network that can be redeemed on a 1:1 basis for USD. The term ‘stablecoin’ applies to a cryptocurrency that is fixed to the price of a fiat currency such as EUR, GBP or USD. TrueUSD is a trusted stablecoin that is pegged to the US Dollar, and this is achieved by TrustToken maintaining the amount of TUSD in circulation to be the same as the amount of USD held in custodial accounts.
The value of TrueUSD (TUSD) is independently attested live on-chain by Armanino in TrustExplorer. Armanino publishes the Proof of Reserves in a real-time assurance dashboard which can be found here. This shows the amount of TUSD tokens in circulation compared to the amount of escrowed fiat held in custodial accounts. For TUSD to maintain its ‘stablecoin’ status, these figures must always be fully collateralised i.e. remain the same.
TrustExplorer is the world’s first application that provides independent accountant reports in real-time, and when the amount of minted TUSD is greater than the amount of USD in reserve, this would trigger a transaction failure. Transactions are only approved when the TUSD minted is less than or equal to the amount of USD in reserve.
TrustToken has also created different stablecoins that are pegged to different fiat currencies such as HKD, GBP, AUD and CAD. These stablecoins are also attested in real-time by Armanino and are conveniently named TrueHKD, TrueGBP, TrueAUD and TrueCAD.
The TrustToken team consists of a variety of highly skilled members and the leadership team is as follows:

TrueUSD was first introduced in mid-2018 as a fully collateralised stablecoin backed by the US Dollar. When it was launched, it was distributed via a TrustToken platform smart contract and since then, TrustToken has partnered with registered banks and fiduciaries that hold the assets backing TUSD.
In December 2019, TrueUSD became the first stablecoin to offer real time audits. Ever since, TUSD has maintained its stablecoin status and continues to be redeemable on a 1:1 basis for USD.
