British Virgin Islands, January 26, 2021 – Tether Operations Limited, the blockchain-enabled platform that powers the largest stablecoin by market capitalization, has today announced that Tether tokens (USDt) have surpassed US$25 billion.
As the most stable, liquid and innovative stablecoin, USDt is pre-eminent. USDt performs a pivotal role within the digital token ecosystem, with many digital token spot exchanges now denominating pairs in USDt rather than bitcoin (BTC). USDt is also increasingly being used in remittances and innovative projects in the digital token ecosystem, including those in the nascent space of decentralised finance (DeFi).
“Those working at the coal face of the digital token space, be they traders or developers, like using Tether,” said Paolo Ardoino, CTO at Tether. “This latest milestone reflects the trust and growing popularity of Tether. As space becomes the focus of institutional investors, Tether is providing the foundations on which the digital token space can grow. Tether will continue to support our flourishing community.”
USDt works across a diversity of different blockchains, including Algorand, Bitcoin Cash’s Simple Ledger Protocol (SLP), Ethereum, EOS, Liquid Network, Omni and Tron. USDt is driven to support and empower growing ventures and innovation in the blockchain space.
Tether is the preeminent stablecoin with the biggest market capitalization, surpassing that of all rival offerings combined. Created in October 2014, Tether has grown to become the most traded cryptocurrency. Tether is disrupting the legacy financial system by offering a more modern approach to money. By introducing fiat currency-digital cash to the bitcoin, Ethereum, EOS, Liquid Network, Omni, Tron and Algorand blockchains, Tether makes a significant contribution to a more connected ecosystem. Tether combines digital currency benefits, such as instant global transactions, with traditional currency benefits, such as price stability. With a commitment to transparency and compliance, Tether is a fast and low-cost way to transact with money.
