USDT is considered a bellwether stablecoin because its supply reflects the market’s demand for cryptocurrencies. USDT is the quote currency for cryptocurrencies on several major exchanges, including Bitfinex, which has one of the most liquid BTC markets in the world.
Все еще, the stablecoin has been subject to intense scrutiny in the past over allegations that it’s only loosely pegged to the U.S. доллар. Its ties to Bitfinex, a leading cryptocurrency exchange, have also made USDT the subject of intense scrutiny.
Much of the fear, uncertainty and doubt was laid to rest earlier last month after Bitfinex and Tether settled with the Office of the New York Attorney General in a case against Tether. The companies were ordered to pay $18.5 million as part of a settlement and agree to report their reserves each quarter for the next two years.
