Terra Luna’s empire collapsed overnight. It started with its stablecoin UST showing signs of capital flight. The price of UST has so far been unable to recover, currently at $0.008. And today, we saw stablecoins USDD & USDN also losing their pegs. What is wrong with stablecoin?
In the bear markets, investors like you and me try to protect our savings and investments by parking them in stablecoins. But which of the 85 stablecoins out there, should we trust our life savings with? Is there a robust stablecoin, that we think is worth considering as an alternative to the not-so-stablecoins? Let’s discover more about TOR stablecoin.
What is TOR?
Talking about a stablecoin this is what we expect. A strong peg. Check out Tor in the list of stablecoins on Coingecko. This USD-pegged stablecoin has not at all deviated from its peg in the most extreme market conditions. But what is TOR? How does it maintain its peg?
TOR is the stablecoin of Hector Finance. Unlike UST, TOR is not created depending on its demand, but when its value is not less than 50% of its value in the Curve pool. This way, TOR is prevented from being used to over-create itself so that it is not vulnerable to the same attacks that UST had.

Therefore, the $TOR stablecoin can only be minted by burning $HEC and offers highly competitive farming rewards.
At the time of writing this article, the market cap of TOR is only $17 million with a 24-hour trading volume of $906,000 and a circulating and total supply of 17 million tokens. Its supply chain is way smaller than UST, which gives it less exposure to possible attacks like UST had.
Also, another secret of the strength of TOR is its treasury, because it can complete the current TOR total supply. Nowadays, the Curve Pool on Fantom is the one that holds the majority of its liquidity. Therefore, with an adjusted minting demand, TOR will have less inflation, where liquidity and the total supply will have a better balance.
On the other hand, Hector Finance not only has TOR. It also has its native token, HEC this deflationary utility token nowadays has $21.5 million in market cap with a total supply of 2.74 million, while HEC has $68.8 million in TVL. You can buy TOR on the Hector finance platform, Spookyswap, or Bitmart.
