After much discussion about its plans to disclosing information about Tether’s reserves, the team has on Thursday revealed new plans. In a shift in assurance and attestation process, the company announced it is working with a top public accounting firm. The company will now bring out monthly reports on financial reserves behind the stablecoin. Stressing on providing transparency and accountability, the company is moving on from the quarterly reporting process.
Describing the new partnership as a significant update to its auditing process, Tether said the move aligns with future plans. Going forward, the company behind the top stablecoin will shift to a complete audit process.
