Yesterday, 300 mln new Tether tokens were created and the price of Bitcoin posted an increase, though not a huge one. Tether is a controversial altcoin that is supposed to be backed by actual US dollars in the Tether company’s bank account.

Such a large influx of money into the marketplace would be expected to boost the price of Bitcoin, and it appears to have done just that.
