I keep hearing that $USDT has almost no backup when compared to how much is being circulated in the market. I did my research and am very convinced with this theory. In 2020 the NY attorney general decided to investigate into Tether and found that Tether’s claims that it’s a “virtual currency fully backed by dollars” was a lie. Again it turns out it barely had any back up at all.
Even with all of this into, I see some people claiming this theory is all a hoax. But why ? The numbers prove completely otherwise. Is there something more to it that some people don’t see ?
If it doesn’t turn out to be a ponzi scheme and the rug eventually gets pulled, will this also affect other stable coins like $USDC and $USDR ?
