How to buy TetherUs (USDT)
What is TetherUs (USDT)
Tether (USDT) is the first stablecoin to be ever created. A stablecoin is a cryptocurrency designed to have the same value as a specific fiat currency (in this case, the U.S. dollar). USDT was originally released as Realcoin in 2014. Tether was created by Bitcoin investor Brock Pierce, entrepreneur Reeve Collins, and software developer Craig Sellers.
At first, Tether was created on top of the Bitcoin protocol through the use of a technology called Omni Layer, but it later migrated to other blockchain networks. Today, USDT is also available on Ethereum (as an ERC-20 token) and on other blockchains such as TRON, Algorand, Solana, EOS, and the OMG Network.
