tether usdt prints 100 million tokens

[Update Correction]: it appears this Tether deposit was a ‘simple send' from Bitfinex Wallet and was not ‘granted' which means created/printed tether tokens. Here is the rest of the original article which still holds value even though there are not 100M newly created tokens being minted this time around.

While the controversy has been brewing for over half a year, with all of the recent talk about Tether (USDT) and Bitfinex price manipulation of bitcoin (bitcoin futures contracts expirations also in the limelight here), we figured a brief update regarding what we just discovered was in order:

Today, on June 15, 2018, a day after SEC classifies Ethereum (ETH) as not a Security, Tether (USDT) was thought to print $100,000,000 in tokens:tether-usdt-prints-100-million-tokensYou can click the picture to see it live on omniexplorer.info or go here to see as well or go search for the address:


As it turns out, from the update above, this was not the case and was merely a Bitfinex deposit. You can use this link to see all of the new Tether's being printed here.

However, from day one, Tether, the cryptocurrency token allegedly pegged to the US Dollar, has been at the source of criticism for its ‘stablecoin‘ utility as no one has ever been able to verify or audit the paper trail regarding Tether's origins or banking connections. Since each USD-Token with Tether is supposed to be backed by one USD (held in reserve), many question the legitimacy of this and wonder if its not created out of thin air to prop up the price of bitcoin.

Here is a good mix of what we uncovered today so far. Ironically, as you can see, many were sarcastically calling for the Tether bail out here:

There have been many crypto enthusiasts, speculators and of course haters who have tried to call out and label the USDT printing press business as complete fraud and not backed by anything as they continue to print more and more tokens. You can see some past news:

What do you guys think? Will the USDT keep printing more tokens despite all of the controversy swarming its hive to help prop back up the price of Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency markets like so many believed happen during the 2017 bull run.
