About Tether

Tether is a blockchain-based cryptocurrency whose cryptoсoins are backed by an equivalent number of traditional fiat currencies such as the dollar, euro, or Japanese yen, which are held in a specific bank account. Tether tokens, the native tokens of the Tether network, are traded under the symbol USDT.

What are USDT key features and how does it work?

Tether belongs to a group of cryptocurrencies called stablecoins, which aim to maintain the stability of the cryptocurrency value, in contrast to the sharp fluctuations of other popular cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. This would allow it to be used as a medium of exchange and a way of storing value, instead of being used as a speculative investment.

Tether belongs to the category of fiat-collateralized stablecoins. This means that a fiat currency such as the US dollar, euro, or yen supports every cryptocurrency in circulation. Other categories include crypto-collateralized stablecoins that use cryptocurrency reserves as collateral or non-collateralized stablecoins. Non-collateralized stablecoins do not have any collateral but work similarly to a reserve bank to maintain the required number of tokens, depending on the economic situation.

The main reason for Tether’s creation was to build the necessary bridge between fiat currencies and cryptocurrencies and offer users transparency, stability, and minimal transaction fees. USDT is pegged to the US dollar and maintains a 1:1 ratio with the US dollar in value terms. However, Tether Ltd. does not provide any guarantees with respect to any redemption or exchange of Tether for real money, i.e. Tether can’t be exchanged for US dollars.

In February 2021, 57% of all Bitcoin trading volume was concentrated done in BTC/USDT trading pair. Tether remains the main source of liquidity for the cryptocurrency market.
