Tether (USDT) on Tezos

The current market cap of Tether (USDT) is $72.49 billion. During the last 24-hours, Tether had a $24.5 billion trading volume. Tezos is the 12th blockchain where Tether launched. For example, other blockchains include:

  • Ethereum
  • Solana
  • Tron
  • And Polygon. 

Paolo Ardoino, CTO at Tether, said:
Tezos is coming fast onto the scene. We believe that this integration will be essential to its long-term growth.” 

So far, Tezos has had nine upgrades. What sets them apart from other blockchains is that no upgrades required a hard fork. Another feature is that it is a self-upgradable blockchain. This reduces costs and doesn’t split the community. Furthermore, changes integrate easily. Tezos is an energy-efficient PoS blockchain, and they have a proven track record on this. On the other hand, these upgrades managed to:

  • Decreased gas costs.
  • Lower the carbon footprint.

Furthermore, they recently replaced the consensus mechanism. Now they use Tenderbake. To clarify, this is a modified Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) model. This algorithm is like the Tendermint consensus mechanism. You may remember or know this from Cosmos.

Tezos is planning their 10th update. This introduces optimistic roll-ups to their network.
