All About Tether

Tether is a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency and payments network. It can be used to send money globally and has low transaction fees. The Tether system is built on the OMNI layer protocol which enables it to work with any blockchain without the need for integration or additional software. The Tether system has a fiat-backed token called USDT and is allegedly backed by US dollars and commercial paper in the company's accounts. Whether Tether is fully backed by real assets remains a subject of controversy.

The Tether cryptocurrency is designed as a "stablecoin", meaning it has low volatility. The value of Tether is pegged to that of the US dollar and this means that it will not fluctuate too much and thus provide stability for those who use it. One of the major problems of Bitcoin and other popular cryptocurrencies is that their value fluctuates widely making their adoption as a currency difficult. Stablecoins aim to resolve this by maintaining a stable value relative to the US dollar.

The idea behind Tether is to create a cryptocurrency that has a stable value and can be used as a digital representation of the US dollar on exchanges. This way, people can avoid exchanging their money into US dollars and then back into cryptocurrencies.
