Tether, the cryptocurrency that claims to be backed by a dollar for each USDT issued, is majorly a tool to mitigate risk against speculations rather than being an investment. Time and again, the coin has been staying true to its position in the crypto market. It has been a very engaging sight to watch Tether coin surge high since the April boom in terms of Market Capitalization. This can also be one of the reasons because it was late in April when the Tether Treasury printed another $250 million USDT in the market.
The market cap of Tether can be a spellbind for the recent Bitcoin surge that leads to the increasing supply bringing new USD in the Bitcoin exchanges.
"I think the new Tether that's being created is simply reflective of new dollars coming into the [Bitcoin exchange] ecosystem. … 99% of the time, when the Tether supply goes up, that coincides with new USD coming into Bitcoin exchanges." https://t.co/xpA7EF3vWD
