by | Feb 1, 2023

About Tether (USDT)

Tether (originally “Realcoin”) is a stablecoin created in 2014 as a way to combine the simplicity of a dollar with the advantages of blockchain technology. Like many other stablecoins, which mirror the price of a fiat-backed currency or other asset with an assigned market value, Tether is pegged 1:1 to the US dollar, meaning that it maintains the value of one US dollar. Today, as one of the world’s most popular stablecoins, Tether (USDT) has a circulating supply of 67.7 Billion at the time of writing this article. As a result, USDT is widely available for purchase on most leading crypto exchanges.

We’re excited to be adding new cryptocurrencies because it gives donors more flexibility in the way they donate. We recognize that converting from one crypto to another can be a taxable event in many countries, so we want to offer flexibility to accept other tokens directly.
