USDT (a.k.a. Tether) is the cryptocurrency version or form of USD dollar issued by Tether Limited.
In the current monetary system, currency issuance is solely controlled by central banks. USDT claims to be backed by the reserve of US dollar. However, if the USDT is not fully backed, this can induce credit risks. For users, if their accounts of USDT are not regulated, this can lead to a loss of user's protection as well.
In the exclusive interview with BitFinex, Paolo Ardoino, CTO of Tether Limited explains his journey in USDT.
