September 22, 2022 in Product

Tether Operations Limited (“Tether”), the company operating the blockchain-enabled platform tether.to that powers the largest stablecoin by market capitalization, announced today the launch of Tether tokens (“USDT”) on Polkadot, a decentralized, open-source blockchain platform.

Polkadot is a full-stack Web3 ecosystem built for the multichain future. It is a true multi-chain application environment where activities such as cross-chain registries and cross-chain computation are possible. Polkadot facilitates independent blockchains to exchange information and transactions in a secure and trustless way via the Polkadot Relay Chain, making it easier to create and connect decentralized applications, services, and institutions.

The addition of Tether to the Polkadot ecosystem is another milestone from the industry’s leading  stablecoin as it continues  to increase its presence in decentralized ecosystems. It will alleviate the potential adverse effects associated with market volatility and provide a stable currency to generate yield, and move in and out of the network.

“We’re delighted to launch USDT on Polkadot, offering its community access to the most liquid, stable, and trusted stablecoin in the digital token space,” said Paolo Ardoino, CTO at Tether. “Polkadot is on a trajectory of growth and evolution this year and we believe Tether's addition will be essential in helping it continue to thrive.”

The launch of USDT on Polkadot further highlights Tether's dedication to pioneering collaboration and interoperability within the growing digital asset space. The stablecoin is now live on a total of eleven networks and counting including Kusama, Ethereum, Solana, Algorand, EOS, Liquid Network, Omni, Tron, NEAR and Bitcoin Cash’s Standard Ledger Protocol.
