Our analysis will provide a comprehensive examination of the stablecoin sector, leveraging the most reliable data from authoritative sources. Join us as we explore the intricate dynamics, trends, and developments shaping the world of stablecoins in this month’s report.  

1. Top Stablecoins: A Simple Analysis  

To do a simple analysis aimed to find the top stablecoins of the market in this month, generally we consider three parameters: market capitalisation, market dominance and trading volume.

1.1. Top Stablecoins by Market Capitalisation 

Market capitalisation in stablecoins reflects their total value in circulation. A stablecoin with a high market cap indicates wide adoption, trust and significant usage in transactions and investments. 

Tether, USDC, Dai, Ethena USDe, First Digital USD, USDD and Frax are the top seven Stablecoins by Market Capitalisation. 

Stablecoins  Market Capitalisation 
Tether  $111,715,427,768
USDC $32,157,629,415
Dai $5,311,637,590
Ethena USDe $2,951,205,660
First Digital USD $2,908,728,703
USDD $730,640,246
Frax $647,306,953

Among the top seven stablecoins, Tether has the highest market capitalisation of $111,715,427,768. USDC follows with $32,157,629,415 market capitalisation. Dai and Ethena USDe record $5,311,637,590 and $2,951,205,660, respectively. Frax registers the lowest market capitalisation of $647,306,953. USDD is the second lowest and First Digital USD is the third lowest.       

1.2. Top Stablecoins by Market Dominance 

Market dominance in Stablecoins indicates the share of a stablecoin’s market cap relative to the total market. High dominance means it is the leading stablecoin, widely trusted and extensively used. 

Tether, USDC, Dai, Ethena USDe, First Digital USD, USDD and Frax are the top seven Stablecoins by Market Dominance. 

Stablecoins  Market Dominance [in %] 
Tether  71.45%
USDC 20.53%
Dai 3.40%
Ethena USDe 1.88%
First Digital USD 1.86%
USDD 0.47%
Frax 0.41%

Among the seven top stablecoins, Tether registers a massive dominance of 71.45%. USDC follows with 20.53%. Dai is the third largest in terms of dominance, with 3.40% market dominance. Others enjoy less than 5% share in the market.  

1.3. Top Stablecoins by Trading Volume 

Trading volume in Stablecoins indicates the total value of transactions over a period. High trading volume means the stablecoin is actively traded, suggesting high liquidity and demand. 

The top three Stablecoins by Trading Volume are Tether, USDC and First Digital USD. Interestingly, though First Digital USD is the first largest in terms of market capitalisation and market dominance, it is the third largest in terms of Trading Volume. 

Stablecoins  Trading Volume 
Tether  $40,940,344,137
USDC $6,495,631,952
Dai $306,357,786
Ethena USDe $107,556,064

2. Stablecoin Price Analysis: An In-Depth Overview 

Let’s do an in-depth analysis focusing on the seven stablecoins by dominance and market cap.

2.1. Stablecoin One Month Change 

Stablecoins  One Month Change (in %) 
Tether  +1.09%
USDC -2.33%
Dai +0.68%
Ethena USDe +26.36%

Frax +0.47%

Among the top seven stablecoins, Ethena USDe has the highest one month positive change of +26.36%. USDD follows with +3.52%. Conversely, First Digital USD marks the highest one month negative change of -35.22%. USDC follows with a -2.33% one-month change. Others show moderate changes.  

2.2. Stablecoin One Month % Off Peg

The One Month % Off Peg indicator indicates the percentage deviation from their target value (usually $1) over the past month, reflecting stability or instability in maintaining their intended value. Negative off peg value means the stablecoin is below its target value, and positive off peg value means it is above; negative off peg implies undervaluation, which is generally more manageable than overvaluation.   

Stablecoins  1M % Off Peg
Tether  -0.15%
USDC -0.15%
Dai -0.54%
Ethena USDe -0.59%
First Digital USD -0.56%
USDD -2.88%
Frax -1.42%

A smaller off peg value is better as it indicates the stablecoin is maintaining its target value more accurately and consistently. 

Among the top stablecoins, Tether and USDC record a very small off peg value of -0.15%. Ethena USDe, First Digital USD and Dai register -0.59%, -0.56%, and -0.54%, respectively. USDD has the worst off peg value of -2.88%, and Frax the second worst value of -1.42%. Notably, none of them have a positive off peg value.
