British Virgin Islands, December 18, 2020 – Tether.to, the blockchain-enabled platform that powers the largest stablecoin by market capitalization, has surpassed US$20 billion, underlying the increasing dominance of the most popular, liquid and innovative stablecoin.
Tether tokens (USDt) perform a pivotal role within the digital token ecosystem, with many digital token spot exchanges now denominating pairs in Tether USDt rather than USD. Tether 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).
“As the year draws to a close, we can only reflect on Tether’s impressive growth,” said Paolo Ardoino, CTO at Tether. “The market has spoken: People trust Tether and like using the most liquid and stable stablecoin. Tether will continue to be at the forefront of stablecoins’ innovation in 2021.”
Tether’s market capitalization has mushroomed to US$20 billion, having grown from about US$2 billion in February 2019. Tether works across a diversity of different blockchains, including Algorand, Bitcoin Cash’s Simple Ledger Protocol (SLP), Ethereum, EOS, Liquid Network, Omni and Tron. Tether 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.
