Later on, Ardoino commented that these swaps were quickly absorbed by the EOS ecosystem and that Tether was eager to swap more USDT if the stablecoins were actively used.

No active use of USDT on OMG Network yet

On June 1, Tether tweeted that USDT would be soon also launched on OMG Network.

However, as per Paolo Ardoino, OMG community does not have many projects that could actively use OMG-USDT yet.
