What is Tether and why I am staying far away from it

Now Tether is not your usual crypto currency. It’s not something you buy low and sell high.

What you’ll notice is that the price oscillates around the 1.000 mark.

It’s not your usual crypto currency. It’s what’s known as a stable coin. So its main goal is to track the US dollar’s price 1:1

And tether is not a long-term investment that will grow your money by itself because it stays pegged to the U.S. dollar.

So, investors use this crypto coin to hedge against the US dollar .

Investors use this crypto coin to gain exposure to the US dollar but in crypto form. Tether also sometimes acts as a “bridge” between the fiat and crypto world – as in people often buy stable coins to then buy other cryptos

It’s for the investors who want to invest and diversify their money in a non-government measure and to control their own finances instead of putting the money in banks.

Sounds good and safe right?

The problem is that Tether (USDT) always denies an audit.

They have also been investigated by the NY Attorney General’s office for lying about their reserves.

Also there is major volatility and uncertainty with crypto exchanges since the FTX and Alameda debacle.

Binance (One of the largest Crypto currency exchange) even paused customer deposits of stable coins USD Coin and Tether on Thursday morning without explanation.

This is not safe as a hedge in my opinion. Hence, it’s another reason to stay away from even stable coins like Tether…
