  • Tether’s aggressive expansion illustrated by minting $8 billion USDT on Ethereum and Tron.
  • Tether’s collaboration with U.S. law enforcement agencies underscores its commitment to security and legal compliance.

In a striking development within the cryptocurrency space, Tether, a prominent stablecoin issuer, has significantly boosted its reserves. As reported by Lookonchain, a crypto analytics platform, Tether minted a remarkable $8 billion in USDT on Ethereum (ETH) and Tron (TRX) over the last three months.

This massive infusion includes the recent minting of $1 billion in USDT on Ethereum. Lookonchain highlighted this development in a tweet, noting,


Tether’s CEO Paolo Ardoino has characterized the latest minting as an “inventory replenish” on the Ethereum network. This move, he explains, is an authorized but not issued transaction, signifying these tokens are earmarked for future issuance requests and chain swaps.

This strategic step demonstrates Tether’s proactive approach in maintaining liquidity for USDT, the largest stablecoin by market capitalization, which aims to maintain a 1:1 peg with the US dollar.

Tether’s Collaboration with Law Enforcement

Beyond financial operations, Tether’s recent engagements have extended into the realm of legal compliance and crime prevention. Ardoino, earlier this month, announced Tether’s collaboration with the United States Secret Service (USSS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

This initiative, part of Tether’s efforts to assist in combating crime and aiding in the recovery of victims’ funds, underscores the company’s commitment to supporting law enforcement. This involvement, as highlighted by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), marks a significant step in Tether’s efforts to secure the cryptocurrency ecosystem and its users.
