Totalling 1.401 Billion USDT ~ $1.406 Billion in USD

When a large number of stablecoins like Tether (USDT) flood the market like this it’s often a sign that bitcoin could be due to make a large move to the upside, especially with the impending halving event that’s due to occur in approximately 1,844 blocks.


Bitcoin has also moved in step with the issuance of Tethers. The coin rose from $6,400 to a high of $8,300, which is almost a 30 percent increase.

Year to date, Tether printed $3.1 billion USDT. This includes $120 million in Feb and $1.4 billion in March alone. Other cryptocurrencies minted far less coins. USD Coin (USDC) minted only $250 million, Paxos Standard (PAX) minted $20 million and Binance USD (BUSD) minted $180 million.

Tether CTO Paolo Ardoino noted that the new Tethers were part of “inventory replenishes,” as reached out in the comment section of the Whale Alert Twitter.

“Note this is an authorized but not issued transaction, meaning that this amount will be used as inventory for next period issuance requests,” said Ardoino.
