Raybo Technology, a technology company based in Beijing, China, announced a 31-day giveaway beginning from July 15, offering to pay bonus to whoever holding TRC20 based USDT. The holders will receive airdrop bonus on a daily basis, with up to 100% annualized percentage rate.

Cryptocurrency exchanges Kucoin, Huobi, OKEx, Poloniex and other exchanges will be Raybo’s launching partners supporting the giveaway. Based on projected USDT holdings around the world, the total giveaway value is expected to exceed $30 million USD.

Raybo Technology as a big believer in blockchain industry and big contributor to the blockchain community, has its mission to take the best blockchain technology to the masses. Inspired by Justin Sun, Raybo now decided to start this brand new campaign so as to introduce the advantages of TRC20 based USDT to the rest of the blockchain community.

Users can swap their existing Omni based USDT, or ERC20 based USDT for TRC20 based USDT at the supporting exchanges and will get rewarded on a daily basis during the campaign.

2. The Rewarding Plan

Since its mainnet launch in June 2018, TRON has been working steadily to provide a highly smart and scalable ecosystem for blockchain developers. TRON recently announced a hard fork that will increase performance and account management. It is steadily adding both centralized and decentralized exchanges to make it easy for consumers and businesses to trade digital tokens.

Launched in October 2014, Tether was created in response to a clear market need to allow movements of funds quickly between different exchanges, while benefiting from the stability of the US Dollar. While there have been several alternative stablecoins launched since March 2018, Tether still enjoys market dominance. Several large companies, including Facebook and JPMorgan, recently have discussed using blockchain to speed money transfers and minimize volatility across their networks.
