USDT Tokens Now Live on the Polkadot Network
Tether Limited recently expanded its reach across various blockchain platforms by launching its stablecoin (USDT) on the Polkadot network. Connecting to Polkadot allows users to work with multiple blockchains in the Polkadot network.
According to a press statement from Tether, adding Tether’s stablecoin to the Polkadot network is the right step towards achieving the goal of spreading across decentralized ecosystems. This will mitigate the potential adverse effects of market volatility and provides a stable currency to earn income and move in and out of the network.
USDT stablecoin is currently live on a total of 11 blockchain platforms including Avalanche, Kusama, Ethereum, Solana, Algorand, EOS, Liquid Network, Omni, Tron, NEAR, and Bitcoin Cash’s Standard Ledger Protocol. The launch of USDT on Polkadot further underscores Tether's commitment to collaboration and interoperability as a pioneer in the growing digital asset space.
"We are excited to launch Polkadot USDT, providing its community with access to the most liquid, stable, and reliable stablecoins in the digital token space," said Tether CTO, Paolo Ardoino."Polkadot is on a trajectory of growth and development this year, and we believe the addition of Tether is necessary for it to continue to evolve."
Tether becomes the first stablecoin to be launched on Algorand 2.0 in facilitating instant confirmation of payments, wallet support, and micropayments. Users of Algorand will be able to get access to USDT with high scalability and speed.Paxful, a leading peer-to-peer Bitcoin (BTC) trading platform had earlier announced the addition of USDT to its crypto payment options.
Paxful hopes that its investors will be more in control of their finance and protected against the volatility of the blockchain ecosystem as a result of their collaboration with Tether. Paxful users can also convert BTC to USDT and vice versa according to Co-founder, Ray Youssef.
