Over 20,000 individuals have verified their Ethereum address on TRM’s platform, making it one of the largest identity networks on Ethereum.

TRM recently rolled out its analytics solution globally with TrustToken’s TrueUSD, one of the largest fiat-backed stablecoins, to help TrustToken better drive growth and mitigate risks.  TrustToken is using TRM to accurately segment core user groups and identify which exchanges and channels are driving growth.
