USDD stablecoin will be pegged to the underlying asset (TRX) and issued in a decentralized (on-chain) manner.
When the price of USDD is less than 1 USD leading to a price difference, users and investors can deposit 1 USDD into the system and receive 1 USD worth of TRX.
When the price of USDD is higher than 1 USD leading to a price difference, users and investors can deposit 1 USD worth of TRX and get 1 USDD in return.
