Tether Bitcoin

According to JPMorgan, the BTC market may experience liquidity shock if traders lose faith in Tether (USDT). What is Tether? It is a stablecoin that is used in transactions to move between cryptocurrencies and fiat money. Tethers value is linked to the USD on a 1:1 basis. Besides, in comparison to other cryptos such as the BTC that are mined, Tether is created on customer orders. As a result, some doubts appeared that Tether was used to increase the value of Bitcoin. According to JPMorgan, nearly 50%-60% of Bitcoin traded for USDT since 2019. Therefore, the loss of confidence in Tether may cause a fall in bitcoins value.
