About Tether


What is Tether 


Tether Limited is a company that operates a platform that issued blockchain-based assets that are linked to the price of FIAT money. Tether supports four stablecoins, including USDT, CNHT, EURT, and XAUT.


They originally launched the USDT in 2014, where they wanted to make government money compatible with cryptocurrency assets that traded 24/7 on the global market. Every single USDT token is redeemable for a corresponding I.S. dollar which is held under the custody of Tether Limited. The total value of all USDT is equal to the reserves that are held by the company itself.


This means that once a USDT is newly minted as well as issued, it has the ability to be transferred, stored, and even spent at a variety of different exchanges, wallets, and financial services. 


Tether Founders


Tether (USDT) was originally known as Realcoin and was launched in 2014 by Brock Pierce, Reeve Collins as well as Craig Stellars.

To start with, Brock Pierce was an entrepreneur that co-founded many projects within the cryptocurrency space such as the firm Blockchain Capital, as well as becoming the director of the Bitcoin Foundation. He also co-founded Block.one, the company that created EOS.


Reeve Collins on the other hand was the CEO of Tether for the first two years and co-founded the online ad network Traffic Marketplace as well as the entertainment studio known as RedLever. Craig Stellars was a member of the Omni Foundation and worked in several other companies such as Bitfinex, Fatcom, Synero, and the MaidSafe Foundation.


How Does USDT Work


Tether Limited accepts FIAT deposits and withdrawals and is responsible for the maintenance and destruction of the Tether tokens that is in accordance to the reserves they have. Tether was originally launched on the Bitcoin blockchain through the Omni Layer protocol which was a platform used for the creation as well as the trading of digital assets on top of Bitcoin which enabled the minting and burning of Tether tokens which was based on the amount that was under custody.

Tether's ledger is stored on the Blockchain due to Omni, where the Omni Explorer allowed the users to view the transactions.


Since 2020, Tethers became available as assets on Liquid as well, which is a Bitcoin sidechain. It is now available on Ethereum, Tron, and EOSIO, all of which allow for the creation of new assets natively.


The main reason why a stablecoin such as this one holds value is due to the fact that it offers traders a powerful tool when it comes to avoiding the extreme volatility of the markets. In other words, through moving value to USDT, a trader has the opportunity to reduce the risk of exposure to a drop in value. USDT also removes any traction costs as well as delays that could impair trade execution within the cryptocurrency market. The Tether price always remains at $1, and its price ticker is USDT.


Short-term credit markets benefit from USDT due to the difficulty FIAT currency options have, and since USDT has a dollar peg to the USD, it is in a sense a FIAT currency that runs within a blockchain. FIAT currencies are slower by comparison, and many major exchanges do support USDT. It is most commonly used on the Ethereum Blockchain, however, there are alternative options. This is not advice, just a showcase that USDT is pegged to the USD, which is one of the FIAT currencies supported by Tether Limited. In other words, you have coins pegged to other currencies, however, this should not be investment advice, do not think of this as advice, and if you need advice look elsewhere.


This being the case, exchanges have found Tether to be a powerful tool that has allowed them to increase the number of offered trading pairs and helps in the facilitation of activity within regions in the world where FIAT trading is not an availability.
