  • About Tether (USDT)

    As the world's first stablecoin, Tether (USDT) was launched in 2014, aims to promote the use of fiat currency in a digital way. USDT is based on an asset token (Omnilayer protocol) on the Bitcoin Network and is issued according to the amount of fiat currency actually held by the bank. The market value of USDT is pegged at a ratio of 1:1 with the dollar. Users can send and receive tokens on the blockchain like using Bitcoin.

    How does Tether (USDT) Work?

    According to the White Paper of Tether (USDT), "each tether unit issued into circulation is backed in a one-to-one ratio (i.e. one Tether USDT is one US dollar) by the corresponding fiat currency unit held in deposit by Hong Kong based Tether Limited. In addition to pegged US dollar assets, cash equivalents, other assets or loan receivables provided by Tether to third parties can also be used as collateral.

    The following is the process of issuing and burning USDT:

    Issuing USDT:
    When a customer remits US dollars to the bank account of the USDT issuer, Tether will transfer the same amount of US dollars to the customer's Tether wallet after receiving the funds.

    Burning USDT:
    When customers want to redeem US dollars, they need to transfer the USDT they hold to the core wallet of Tether Limited and pay the corresponding handling fee. Subsequently, Tether Limited will remit the same amount of US dollars to the customer's bank account and burn the corresponding amount of USDT.

    When the total amount of USDT circulating in the market is less than or equal to the reserve value of Tether, Tether will use the reserve assets to redeem the issued USDT to ensure that USDTs can always be pegged with the US dollar. You can view the relevant values through the transparency page of the official website of Tether.

Tether FAQs

  • 1. Why should I buy a stablecoin such as Tether?
    Primarily, a stablecoin such as Tether acts as a medium of exchange in the crypto community, allowing users in the community to buy and sell cryptocurrencies of his/her choice at any given time. Other than that, stablecoins such as Tether offer a financial hedge for people from high inflation economies with a more stable currency in the form of crypto.
  • 2. Should I buy Tether now?
    It is important to remember that even a stablecoin like Tether can be subject to extreme market conditions, legal policies, project team management and other unpredictable factors. As such, it is important to manage your own financial portfolio and risk level. Users are advised to do your own research when making investment decisions in the crypto market.
  • 3. How can the value of stablecoins such as Tether be maintained?
    There are three types of stablecoins in the market: fiat-backed, crypto-collateralized and algorithmic.

    Fiat backed stablecoins are maintained by cash reserves of a fiat currency such as USD or EUR, whereas crypto collateralized stablecoins are pegged to holdings of other cryptocurrencies such as BTC or ETH, instead of fiat currencies.

    The most controversial of all would be algorithmic stablecoins, which are built on a blockchain and rely on a supply-and-demand algorithm to maintain the 1:1 price peg. As the demand increases to drive the price up, the protocol issues more supply to drop the price back to its pegged $1.00 price, and vice versa.
