Yeah, I realized that after I went to the trouble of explaining Tether. I checked his other posts, and felt pretty stupid for not noticing his username contains the name of the site he's trying to send people to. He's only here (and probably other places) to shill that site.


He's been deactivated and shill links removed.

A replacement for tether incoming? TrueUSD sounds much better than Tether according to Chris, and works based on Ethereum smart contracts:

Tether Peg Cracks

The cryptocurrency market rallied on Monday after a crack in the tether stablecoin led to a surge in the price of Bitcoin.

The move led to gains across the entire spectrum of digital currencies with only tether showing a loss amongst the top twenty coins. The sell-off in the USDT peg is the latest twist after a bout of rumours regarding the Bitfinex exchange and problems surrounding tether wire transfers.

The irony is that the Tether fiasco actually gave BTC a decent little bump.

From Coindesk:

https://www.coindesk.com/binance-suspends-tether-withdrawals-after-disavowing-delist-rumor/

And now, tether is back to 98% of its $1.00 USD price. I've basically stopped using tether even for small time periods. Use at your own risk.

I don't see tether going away personally. I think it's a lot of wishful/hopeful thinking.
Still have around 50k in it in the event the market dumps again.
To each their own though.
