What is Tether(USDT)?

Tether (USDT) was one of the first cryptocurrencies to peg its market value to a fiat currency. Tether, originally called “Realcoin,” valued each token at $1 to reduce the friction  of moving real currency throughout the cryptocurrency ecosystem.

5 Tokens There are five Tether crypto tokens in circulation today – USDT, EURT, MXNT, CNHT and XAUT. The value of each is pegged at a ratio of 1:1 to the US Dollar, Euro, Mexican Peso, offshore Chinese Yuan, and a troy ounce of gold, respectively.

What are stablecoins?  

Stablecoins were meant to provide a solution to the problem of volatility.    Their aim is to copy traditional currencies, but with the added benefits of blockchain technology.


While many see bitcoin as digital gold, stablecoins are different.    Bitcoin derives its value partly from the costs involved in creating or “mining”  new coins, but also from demand in the market.

This has similarities with gold, where the value goes beyond its mining recycling and    storage cost. A stablecoin derives its value from being pegged against a currency such as the dollar.

How do USDT Tether tokens work?

When you give up your fiat money in exchange for USDT tokens through a cryptocurrency exchange platform, you receive the equivalent number of tokens for the amount of money used for the purchase. If a token costs a dollar, you receive 500 tokens for buying with $500.

Afterwards, you can send them to someone else, exchange for other currencies, or store them in a wallet. USDT coins are removed from circulation when users redeem the tokens for fiat currency.

Tether , with a current market capitalization of 66 billion USD, moves across blockchains like many other digital currencies. It was based initially on the Omni Layer, a transport protocol on the Bitcoin blockchain.

Tether’s Ethereum version is now the most popular Tether token type.    Currently, while USDT is available across many blockchains, its usage on Ethereum and    Tron is the highest.
