3) Tokenised BTCs on Ethereum

You have heard about tokenised BTCs on Ethereum and are willing to know how many are already there?

You will get all the information you need to know in this Dune dashboard, available here, made by Ilias Imos.

There is also this website (, available here.

4) How to transfer USDT between centralised exchanges for less fees?

USDT is available on three blockchains: OMNI (Bitcoin based), ERC20 (Ethereum) and TRC20 (Tron).

Compare all the available options (OMNI, ERC20 & TRC20) in your centralised exchanged (Binance, etc.) and use the cheapest in terms of fees to do a transfer.

In the below example, USDT TRC20 is the cheapest option on Binance. You will pay 0 withdrawal fees, compared to 3.05 USDT on ERC20 and 5.82 USDT on OMNI.

However, not all centralised exchanges support USDT TRC20.

Supported exchanges for USDT TRC20:

  • Bitfinex, Binance, Huobi, Poloniex, Okex, Kucoin.

Not supported exchanges:

  • Kraken, Bitstamp and Coinbase.

So if you would like to transfer USDT between centralised exchanges, check if TRC20 is supported and you will save some money on fees.

⚠️ You cannot use USDT TRC20 with your MetaMask account, it has to be used only with other compatible USDT TRC20 supported centralised exchanges ⚠️

⚠️ If you deposit USDT TRC20 to your MetaMask you will lose the money transferred ⚠️

That’s it for today.
