What is USDT?
Tether (USDT) is a stablecoin that has been providing users with the ability to interact with blockchain applications using a currency tied to the U.S dollar. Tether keeps the peg by minting new USDT when fiat is deposited, and burning USDT when fiat is withdrawn. Keeping a project’s market cap and circulating supply the same ensures the token is always trading at $1. USDT and other stablecoins allow holders to keep their money in crypto while avoiding the potentially volatile nature of other cryptocurrencies. Tether has been a staple in the cryptocurrency world, with the first tokens launching in 2014. Since then, it has fueled the growth of DeFi and other applications by providing a stable value that interacts easily with on-chain protocols.
What is Tether?
Tether was founded by a group of Bitcoin enthusiasts and early adopters, passionate about facilitating the use of fiat currencies in a digital manner. In 2014, the company launched Tether.to, a blockchain-enabled platform aimed at disrupting the conventional financial system with a more modern approach to money.
As the first blockchain-enabled platform to facilitate the digital use of traditional currencies — a familiar, stable accounting unit — Tether has created a revolutionary building block that companies worldwide use to offer democratised cross-border financial services. Tether tokens have grown from being the first to the largest stablecoin by volume today.
