Justin Sun clarified that the primary objective behind the transfer was to facilitate market-making between leading TUSD exchanges in order to enhance its liquidity and trading volume, rather than participating in exchange promotions. He went on to say that within a few hours their market maker had achieved a total trading volume of $40 million, contributing towards stability of TUSD’s price.
