Out of the top five stablecoins today, BUSD’s market cap grew the most over the last month.
Makerdao’s DAI stablecoin has shed 9.7% this past month and the stablecoin’s market capitalization was the biggest loser out of the top ten dollar-pegged crypto tokens. On Oct. 31, DAI’s market cap was around $5.77 billion and today, it’s coasting along at $5.20 billion.

Stablecoin trade volume has dropped a great deal over the last two months but the tokens still represent a majority of today’s trades.

On Oct. 31, stablecoins recorded $55.91 billion in trades out of the total worldwide crypto trade volume ($71 billion).
During the past 24 hours stablecoins have captured $37.73 billion and the aggregate trade volume among all the crypto coins in existence today is roughly $46.56 billion. This means out of the $46 billion in trades among all the crypto assets, stablecoins equate to 81.04% of those trades.
