Whale Alert spreads the word that Tether Treasury has minted another mammoth-sized USDT lump – 120,000,000 coins.
In the comment thread, the community is mocking the easiness with which Tether can produce more of its stablecoin now, that regulators do not even bother to check any more whether Tether has enough USD to back all the coins it mints.
120,000,000 USDT created just like that
Tether’s CTO Paolo Ardoino commented that this was an inventory replenish on the Ethereum chain and this USDT stash will be used for future issuance requests.
In the comment thread, Twitter users began comparing Tether Ltd to the Fed Reserve that since March has injected more than 6 trl USD in the economy on the orders of President Trump with plans to continue the stimulus program.
Now that Bitcoin has risen above the $10,000 level and has been there for a while already, many believe that more USDT is necessary for trading, since USDT is the most popular asset to trade BTC, both for bulls and bears.
