Stellar overtakes Tether following Coinbase Pro listing and rebrand

While the markets have seen their fair share of green this week, perhaps the most notable movement is Stellar (XLM) leapfrogging Tether (USDT) this week.

Stellar has silently overtaken stable coin tether following the projects listing on Coinbase Pro this week. 

Stellar has overtaken tether just a week after Binance did the same thing, and now sits in #8 position with Tether now at risk of being overtaken by Justin Sun's TRON. 

Stellar has seen a 20% increase in price over the past week which has caused the market capitalization of the project to climb from $1.66 billion to over $2 billion. Stellar is now hot on the heels of Binance Coin (BNB) which also has seen massive growth over 2019.

Stellar also announced this week that Mozilla Chief Operating Officer, Denelle Dixon will be joining the Stellar team as the new Executive Director. The team also announced the new logo for the project. All-in-all, Stellar managed a new top execevutive hire, a top exchange listing and a rebrand of the project. All of which appear to have been a catalyst for the projects success in price this week.

Will wee USDT get flipped by another up and coming project in the next few weeks?

nah, coinbase has no impact on it
15 Mar, 2019 - 08:48
Tether will go up soon after that teaming up with TRON.
15 Mar, 2019 - 08:30
ofc. tether and tron will get great prospects from this collaboration
17 Mar, 2019 - 11:00
you are absolutely right, tether has big opportunities
18 Mar, 2019 - 21:08
i think that tether is much more stable asset than stellar and it has potential for overcoming it in the nearest future
15 Mar, 2019 - 09:27
and i think that both tether and stellar are promising and reliable tokens, and finally the strongest one will get top spot
15 Mar, 2019 - 09:54
Stellar is another shit on coinbase. They were using hacked accounts for the promotion of their company.
15 Mar, 2019 - 09:28
this shit overtook tether but everything changes!
21 Mar, 2019 - 00:59
stable coin market is very promising and shows a lot of potential, projects like stellar and tether can really grow further in the future
16 Mar, 2019 - 10:56
after stellar cbs listing not sure but tether still has a chance
17 Mar, 2019 - 05:32
tether will catch up the losts
17 Mar, 2019 - 07:33
I can be mistaken as I’m not their client, but Coinbase asks for SSN in registration, isn’t it sketchy? This info provides them all the keys to your accounts.

Stellar coin is not what traders want now as everybody is waiting for the answers to old questions about Hacking Team criminals and Coinbase still keeps the mouth shut.
18 Mar, 2019 - 17:50
im still not gonna trust Stellar, consistency is what we need in crypto thats why id rather stay with Tether for now

18 Mar, 2019 - 18:15
stellar is a new coin and correlates with worst exchanges. nothing to do with it.
I do agree that better to stay with usdt as we know it for sure
22 Mar, 2019 - 09:25
not gonna pay this crazy sum for non-existent service, coinbase is going insane with its stupid amendments.
18 Mar, 2019 - 19:06
this price move from Stellar is looking very suspicious for me. I think that coinbase might have manipulated the price of the token somehow in order to make money on insider trading
18 Mar, 2019 - 19:16
eh Im not even worried, this Stellar wont last long and Tether's gonna outdo it, just you watch
18 Mar, 2019 - 19:24
this Stellar newcomer doesnt feel reliable, Tether will send dese upstarts flying very soon
18 Mar, 2019 - 19:42
The rise of Stellar doesn't seem to be natural, for now I'd rather hang back and wait somewhere near Tether
18 Mar, 2019 - 22:21
I don't even know how bnb got under tether. lol
19 Mar, 2019 - 08:12
tether and stellar are prospective coins. lets' see which is better
19 Mar, 2019 - 01:06
I don't see the competition between tether and stellar. both coins are good enough and have a chance to be of huge demand
19 Mar, 2019 - 05:08
of course market capitalization is interesting indicator however trading volume of tether is still much greater than stellar'
20 Mar, 2019 - 11:47
yeah, good point. tether is still on the top with its trading volume
20 Mar, 2019 - 22:40
I wont change my preference lol – no XLM dudes, only Tether!
21 Mar, 2019 - 10:00
hacking team fraud is hidden successfully, coinbase must be proud of the results - public attention is reallocated to stellar listing.
21 Mar, 2019 - 10:49
XLM isn’t trustworthy for now – they can disappear as fast as they came around – so I’ll be with Tether now
21 Mar, 2019 - 12:36
I don’t know a man who trusts XLM now – so I prefer Tether this time
21 Mar, 2019 - 23:20
Stellar is just boring, I would rather place my bets on BNB, USDT or something of this kind
22 Mar, 2019 - 16:22
Scammers helped Stellar get ahead, so it seems wiser to support Tether just like before, this new fraud just isn't worth it
22 Mar, 2019 - 16:31
I don’t about USDT, but Stellar is pumped by Coinbase artificially – of course it will overtake!
22 Mar, 2019 - 22:25
Stellar does not seem to be reliable at all, thus I will stay back and, at most, give Tether some support, but in general I'll wait until it all settles down
22 Mar, 2019 - 23:53
I wouldn’t be that naive to trust XLM now – this coin is new and we don’t know what to expect from it, Tether is ahead for now
23 Mar, 2019 - 00:18
gots no trust for Stellar, theyre a scammy bunch, so id rather keep my assets in Tether and see how things go on from here
23 Mar, 2019 - 00:40
Even experts can’t be sure about Stellar yet – so don’t compare it to Tether, the latter is bigger and people appreciate it
