Yesterday, a total amount of 90 mln Tether (USDT) arrived in the market. Those were not newly-minted coins but just tranches from the USDT treasury.
The first transaction carried 50 mln coins, the second one– 40 mln, a short while afterward.
This injection has helped BTC to recover a little and stopped the overall decline of the crypto market since all altcoins, on the whole, follow the Bitcoin’s rate.
Right after the injection, the USDT trading volumes exceeded the equivalent of $3.5 bln, which is almost a quarter of the whole crypto market trading volume.
