What is USD Tether?

USD Tether (USDT) is a stablecoin issued by the Hong Kong-based company Tether. Stablecoins are digital assets that are pegged to real-world assets (i.e. fiat currency) and therefore do not fluctuate in value. USDT is pegged to the US dollar at a 1:1 ratio, meaning that the value of USDT is equal to the value of the USD and can always be exchanged for an equal amount of USD. Every USDT coin is fully backed by the Tether reserves, which include both traditional currency and cash equivalents. Tether reserves also occasionally including other assets and receivables from loans made by Tether to third parties.

The value of the Tether reserves is published daily, and Tether claims that the value of the Tether reserves “matches or exceeds the value of all USDT in circulation.” One of the oldest stablecoins in existence, USDT is by far the most widely integrated digital-to-fiat cryptocurrency. Tether (USDT) currently sits in the top 5 biggest cryptocurrencies by market cap. To Buy USD Tether in New Zealand, create your free trading account with Swyftx.

This allows companies to exchange funds faster and avoid the process of converting in and out of different fiat currencies through the banking network. It also bypasses any volatility within the crypto market because it is pegged to the US dollar. You may be able to spend your Tether on goods and services with vendors or retailers who accept it.

Swyft is a great trading account for Australians. It is easy to use as well for someone my age, especially with my lack of trading online. All my trading previously has always been done through a broker who took large commission...
