Tether regains $20B that it lost due to the collapse of TerraUSD

Tether’s market worth has broken all previous records. The market capitalization of the USD Coin is just around $29 billion at the moment, making it a distant second.

Tether’s CTO, Paolo Ardoino, had this to say about the company’s amazing growth: “The data we have now overwhelmingly shows how much individuals want to be financially independent. When given the chance, they take it with both hands.”

Tether’s ability to weather market turbulence is a testament to the company’s strength and its dedication to leading transparency practices within the industry. Customers are reacting positively because they see the value in what Tether offers.

Tether and other major stablecoins saw a huge drop in market capitalization as investors got more nervous and started withdrawing their investments during the volatile period that rocked the cryptocurrency industry last year.

Tether is the only stablecoin that has had its market value increase over the last year, while most others have seen a decline.

Kaiko’s research shows that Tether is used in more than half of all transactions on centralized exchanges, demonstrating the cryptocurrency’s preeminence and broad acceptance.

Even if Tether’s market value has risen, questions remain over whether or not the reserves it claims to have been sufficient to maintain its $1 USD peg.

Experts in the cryptocurrency sector are concerned that Tether’s dominance in trading volume on centralized exchanges might threaten the security of the cryptocurrency market as a whole.

The market capitalization of other stablecoins, such as USD Coin (USDC), has not recovered as quickly as Tether’s has. This indicates that stablecoin investors’ faith may not have been totally restored.

This is a watershed moment for stablecoins and the cryptocurrency industry as a whole, as seen by Tether’s meteoric rise in market value and subsequent rebound after its setback last year. Because of this, investors are more at ease, and stablecoins are more firmly established as an essential part of the cryptocurrency ecosystem.
