#Tether Pro-Arguments Below is a Tether pro-argument written by CreepToeCurrentSea. > [USDT](https://tether.to/en/transparency/) is a stablecoin (stable-value cryptocurrency) issued by Tether, a Hong Kong-based company. The token is pegged to the USD by keeping reserves of commercial paper, fiduciary deposits, cash, reserve repo notes, and treasury bills equal to the number of USDT in circulation. Initially named as Realcoin, a second-layer cryptocurrency token built on top of Bitcoin's blockchain using the Omni platform, it was later renamed USTether and, finally, USDT. In addition to Bitcoin, USDT was later updated to work on the Ethereum, EOS, Tron, Algorand, and OMG blockchains. > > # PROs > > **USDT is well established** > > It has built a long history of resilience, reliability and trust because it has been around for a [while](https://www.wsj.com/articles/BL-MBB-23780) (around 8 years in the cryptocurrency market).

In its last known [audit](https://www.fairyproof.com/doc/111.pdf) in 2021 it has been considered to have *"No vulnerabilities with critical, high, medium or low-severity."* > > **Wide acceptance** > > Tether has multiple gateways for customers (retail, exchanges, and companies) because it is built on several leading [blockchains](https://tether.to/en/supported-protocols), including Algorand, Avalanche, Bitcoin Cash's Simple Ledger Protocol (SLP), Ethereum, EOS, Liquid Network, Omni, Polygon, Tezos, Tron, Solana, and Statemine. These transport protocols are made up of open source software that interfaces with blockchains to allow for the issuance and redemption of Tether tokens. > > Furthermore, it has been available on major exchanges such as Bitfinex, Binance, Coinbase, Kraken and [more](https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/tether#markets), Offering a plethora of pairs for users to choose from or that of which is available in their region although as of lately some exchanges have been switching to Circle's USDC over growing concerns of legal issues related with Tether. > > **Buffer against volatility** > > One of the primary functions of stablecoins is to act as a [hedge](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/341245986_Are_stablecoins_truly_diversifiers_hedges_or_safe_havens_against_traditional_cryptocurrencies_as_their_name_suggests) when crypto markets are in a downturn. Because the aforementioned market is extremely volatile, traders and investors want some sort of buffer against this without having to directly trade their crypto for fiat as to also avoid larger fees as well. Supported by its large market capitalization, USDT should be less volatile and thus safer. > > **Announcement of a full audit** > > Tether's CTO Paolo Ardoino recently stated in an [interview](https://www.euromoney.com/article/2a8dpi4tnxahuu98a251c/fintech/cryptocurrencies-tether-is-open-to-providing-more-information) with Euromoney that the company is preparing for a full audit with an accounting firm called MHA Cayman (which also handles Tether's [quarterly assurance opinions/reports](https://assets.ctfassets.net/vyse88cgwfbl/1np5dpcwuHrWJ4AgUgI3Vn/e0dac722de3cea07766e05c52773748b/Tether_Assurance_Consolidated_Reserves_Report_2022-03-31__3_.pdf)). According to the CTO in the interview, MHA Cayman is one of the "*top 12*" accounting firms, and most top accounting firms deny requests for full audits due to the associated reputational risks. In the future, hopefully, this will provide more security and transparency to its users against the number of allegations and investigations it is currently facing. > > **Despite everything, USDT is still here** > > From the past legal troubles it has faced, the ones it's facing right now, the vast amount of criticisms from different facets off the internet and the several crypto winters it endured. USDT is still alive and kicking. Will it still be the top stablecoin in the next 5 years? Unlikely, but I am for certain it was a major part for the growth and expansion of crypto's fetal years.

well to guard against under-performance by a single coin, smart crypt investors diversified their poorfolio and added some coins with use cases like STRAT, EOS and QTUM for smart contracts, ZCASH and DASH for privacy and a coin with enterprise adoption like XRP that would soon be adopted by banks /s

It's always nice to see projects comeback after a bad spell either with the team or whatever. I think EOS pulled this off too, and it's stronger for it now, with ENF now in charge.

ALGO is down ~50% since then. - NXT relevant from 2013 to 2017, once #3 or #4 in marketcap, was the first pure Proof of Stake Blockchain which used Java. Dead. - Stratis relevant from 2016 to 2017, once #8 in marketcap, supported C# and had a Python SDK. Dead - NEO relevant from 2017 to 2019, once #5 in marketpcap, supports Java, C#, Python, Javascript. Dead - EOS relevant from 2017 to 2019, once #7 in marketcap supported building apps with C++.

AI coins are definitely ones to put money on right now, alongside the established L1 networks. INJ and EOS are among the promising ones to consider. I wouldn't overlook them. They've shown resilience and potential for growth in this evolving market.

They could make an ETF for any coin they want. But more than likely they are going to stick to just a few. It's a market that mostly follows Bitcoin's moves anyway. And they would only really pick things that have been around and proven to last for at least a few cycle. So go look at anything you see in the top 20 markets caps between 2016-2018, and are still at least in the top 50 market caps today. But haven't had major tech issues (sorry ETC), or major controversy (sorry BSV), or have had core aspects of their projects exposed (sorry BCH, Tron, EOS).

Honestly shocking to see that Tron was one of the "older" cryptos to stick around. The 2017 sentiment was on stuff like OmiseGO, VChain, EOS, etc.

Sooo I need to invest my life savings in EOS? Got it. Remember kids: always do the opposite of this subs sentiment 😅

There was an investor from China who bought in early and made millions in USD, he convinced his family and friends to sell everything, houses property businesses every cash everything and go all in EOS, seeing his massive profits everyone trusted him. That was at the peak at early 2018, then it started to dump, he never had a chance to take profits as there was none, and it went lower and lower every week, and every week he watch theirs and his initial investments slowly went down > 80-90%. Rumours has it he took his life in the end. Source I read it somewhere on the Chinese forum years ago.

I would feed sol. Get rid of a lot of the no-name project coins. Add eth, btc,sol, ltc. You also have to think about the narrative so garbage can coins, probably side chains, arbitrum, optimism, I would just think ahead to where you see the narrative going and how you see things being marketed when we get into that phase. That's where the money is likely to be and there's always going to be something that does 100X but good luck finding it. With BTC you likely have a 2x. Maybe more. ETH, probably a 3X, LTC, probably a 4 to 5X. So I start looking at these in terms of multiples. The problem with a lot of the smaller side projects. You might not have any X. You might just have losses. Not everything performs in a bull market. Case in point all the people who bought EOS when that launched, it's basically gone straight down

Injective still looks very good. I have been holding my bag since I got them at 7. I scalped some at 20 just yesterday. Another undervalued gem in my port is RAM in the EOS network. It's a RWA with good usecase. It has the potential to fo 100x.

#Tether Pro-Arguments Below is a Tether pro-argument written by CreepToeCurrentSea. > [USDT](https://tether.to/en/transparency/) is a stablecoin (stable-value cryptocurrency) issued by Tether, a Hong Kong-based company.

Good observations. Yeah, 2019-2021 are definitely carrying the combined Experiments. Looking forward to the laggards making some better gains once the bull really hits, but they'll likely be behind the better years for a while. Yeah, besides the big two, BNB has been a big surprise. No one saw it coming and no one ever predicts it will outperform, but here it is again in 1st place so far this year. I haven't run the numbers in a while, but last time I did, BNB is the combined 7 portfolio leader *even though it is absent from two of the Top Ten Portfolio y*ears (It didn't break into the Top Ten until 2020). I suppose are argument for diversification - even if you have to hold some EOS or Tezos along the way lol

Having a 1-year change of +110% sounds bullish already. Even though its recent dip has not been encouraging, as a mid-cap down about 84.11% from its ATH, there's still a chance for some surprises I hope EOS is part of the few tokens in your portfolio. the L1 token support has been strong, and the shift of the token to a deflationary model makes it sound more bullish.

I’ll accept all the hate for saying it, because a few of you really need to hear some truth: Old coins with bad “tokenomics”, no clear purpose, no hype, but most importantly a bunch of old bag holders ready to dump and move on at the first sign of life, these projects will slowly fade away like EOS.

RWA are worth investing into. I'm accumulating RAM on EOS. Just buy some EOS and move them to RAM but both tokens will have a good run looking at the 80% supply burn in the new tokenomics.

Or perhaps EOS having a new juicy tokenomics model

Only a fool sells at this point to buy at a higher price. I have taken the dip opportunity to buy more IOTA, EOS, and SOL. Can't wait to see some buying SOL at its ATH again

Try using it along with everyone else. Ecosystem is one of the best and network is getting so much right. Ethereum & Solana are one of two chains I use on a daily basis for financial applications. Drift is an amazing protocol on Solana for futures. There is no scam when most of the industry either deploys to Ethereum/Solana. Who the hell cares if FTX had deep investments in Solana's development? It's a permissionless open software. Sam also invested in Anthropic and it's probably second best AI company in the world. EOS IO was abandoned in early development since [Block.one](http://Block.one) ran after signing SEC settlement. Not similar.

Soylana is an ftx scam and is just being used by VCs and others with deep pockets and connections to extract money from retards, as they've previously done with other "revolutionary next gen life changing blockchain technology™️" such as EOS, maidsafecoin, iota , xem, and many many others.

You need more then 5 million usd of SOL to run a validator. That means its very centralized and easy to take out. So if its so centralized whats the point over a normal database (which are faster)? SOL might give you some gains but it has no actual future. Its just EOS, NEO, Tron, ADA of the moment.

Great plans. I'm actually looking into crypto with real-use-case. RWA mostly fill this list and one of them is RAM in the EOS ecosystem. The ecosystem is growing and projects are developing on it, they all require RAM which will continue to increase the demand for RAM. My best bet is to but EOS and move it to RAM. RAM and EOS are considerable cheap at the moment.

"Research" is a funny word. What, you read their stupid whitepapers and "partnership lists" ? There's a saying in my country: "Paper accepts everything". In other words: talk is cheap. Also, there are now over 2.5 million tokens. If you're confident you found the 15 that are going to skyrocket you have a lot in common with people who thought similarly 7 years ago. They're deep down into NANO, IOTA, EOS, NEO and garbage like that

ETH has been on this list since like 2015 considering there wasn’t much else out at the time and what was out flopped, except for a few coins here or there. Considering they’ve both survived for roughly a decade+ I would say they’re definitively blue chips. Solana has done well since the FTX crash but I wouldn’t call it a bluechip. I would just call it a coin that has activity right now. There was a time when EOS and NEO had a lot of activity. Hell even NANO used to be popular. In a similar vein XRP has existed for quite some time too (like XMR or LTC, or even BCH) but I wouldn’t call any of those blue chips. More so just coins that have existed and still exist to a degree. I’m not really equating age/price/market cap position with “blue chip” though. I don’t think there are rules that make something a bluechip but you can tell if something has been robust and existing for years without issues, and often you see the price go up as activity/addresses/tx’s/tvl/development increased too.

Bro why are you wasting your time with all of last cycles gainers and a bunch of old coins that aren’t doing shit?? You’re also too spread for the amount of capital you have invested. You gotta ask yourself what that 5% of ADA is going do for you even if it goes up +50% (LOL). Invest in narratives, not top 20 coins that only have high market cap because huge volumes are being traded of them daily. LTC, ADA, EOS, XLM, XRP, NEXO, BNB have to go immediately. Honestly I would just convert everything back into BTC, ETH, SOL and reevaluate.

To be honest, your claim that developer numbers was 'the most worthless metric known to man' didn't suggest a high degree of intelligence. Maybe you didn't buy EOS then, but all of those kind of faster/cheaper chains with marketing have used pretty much the same playbook to attract the naive and gullible. Which of them did you fall for? And maybe more interestingly, why do you not think that the number of devs who contribute new code to the respective ecosystem is a useful metric?

I don't own any Dot, and I've only used Polkadot maybe twice ever, but their ecosystem has the second highest number of developers in all of crypto with about 1/4 the number as are working on Ethereum. https://www.developerreport.com/ I'd suggest that probably means they have more staying power in the long run than most of the highly marketed cashgrab junk like EOS/NEO/Tron/Solana/Avalanche etc.

Not even remotely close. Mining pains aren't even close to being felt yet, and people investing into meme weirdness has nothing to do with "long term valuable projects" existing. Everyone thinks their own personal project is long term and valuable. Useless projects have always been at the top 10 of the ladder ever since I've looked they just have different names - STEEM, DOGE, NEM, MAID, FACTOM, STRAT, BITSHARES, QTUM, Bitcoin Gold, EOS, TRON, ONT. The only difference is now people aren't pretending that they've found some new cure for cancer in a different blockchain and have gone full on "community" in memes. You're not going to flush memes or ""useful projects"" out of the ecosystem any time soon, and Crypto is going to do its thing regardless of whatever silly projects hop in and out of the top 100.

EOS did this in 2018 while I was in the process of moving, totally missed the fact that it was happening. Managed to recover the funds eventually at a cost but that incident put me off self custody for years

Are you talking about which companies have been using it, because my comment has literally listed them. Or are you talking about which chain has been used, because that one should be fairly obvious, since it's been by far the one that has been used the most by companies for blockchain and smart contract, and has been the top favorite alt coin by investors, which is Ethereum. And it's also the one that currently sits at the top of the alt coin market, so it's not even being conspicuous about its success. What exactly have you been putting your money into? Tron, EOS, etc...? I get it, there's been a lot of paper tigers popping up along the way. Some that I also thought had potential. I threw a bit of money into EOS, regrettably.

EOS tokens had a chain swap (from Ethereum to native EOS). Those tokens on ETH network are simply frozen and you can not do anything with them, they will remain in your wallet forever. The only thing that can be done is MEW developers update the UI to stop showing them in your wallet. I also encountered this issue on Ledger Live years ago and my wallet value was incorrect - it was showing a $ value for real EOS while those ETH-EOS were in fact worthless. I reported it to developers and they fixed it. Looks like MEW developers are kinda behind the game ¯\\\_(ツ)\_/¯

Can’t take any of the new coins seriously because the developers control the supply and control the scarcity. BNB is a prime example. Same as EOS. The developers tweak the scarcity and use wash trades to make the per coin value look high

Better leverage is using a margin account and short a basket of zombie projects. For example. You put 1000 in the account, you invest 2000 long in your favorite coins (at least 3 of them to avoid being easily liquidated) and short 1000 in zombie projects like XRP, ADA, EOS, MANA, IOTA. better in several of them so there is lower risk of liquidation if there is a big pump in one of them. Usually I short more whatever coin has pumped the most among my zombie projects. And repay later after the unavoidable dump. This strategy works for me quite well because the interest paid isn’t big, and said zombie projects keep losing positions in the coin ranking

#Tether Pro-Arguments Below is a Tether pro-argument written by CreepToeCurrentSea. > [USDT](https://tether.to/en/transparency/) is a stablecoin (stable-value cryptocurrency) issued by Tether, a Hong Kong-based company. The token is pegged to the USD by keeping reserves of commercial paper, fiduciary deposits, cash, reserve repo notes, and treasury bills equal to the number of USDT in circulation. Initially named as Realcoin, a second-layer cryptocurrency token built on top of Bitcoin's blockchain using the Omni platform, it was later renamed USTether and, finally, USDT.

In its last known [audit](https://www.fairyproof.com/doc/111.pdf) in 2021 it has been considered to have *"No vulnerabilities with critical, high, medium or low-severity."* > > **Wide acceptance** > > Tether has multiple gateways for customers (retail, exchanges, and companies) because it is built on several leading [blockchains](https://tether.to/en/supported-protocols), including Algorand, Avalanche, Bitcoin Cash's Simple Ledger Protocol (SLP), Ethereum, EOS, Liquid Network, Omni, Polygon, Tezos, Tron, Solana, and Statemine.

According to the CTO in the interview, MHA Cayman is one of the "*top 12*" accounting firms, and most top accounting firms deny requests for full audits due to the associated reputational risks.

#Tether Pro-Arguments Below is a Tether pro-argument written by CreepToeCurrentSea. > [USDT](https://tether.to/en/transparency/) is a stablecoin (stable-value cryptocurrency) issued by Tether, a Hong Kong-based company. The token is pegged to the USD by keeping reserves of commercial paper, fiduciary deposits, cash, reserve repo notes, and treasury bills equal to the number of USDT in circulation. Initially named as Realcoin, a second-layer cryptocurrency token built on top of Bitcoin's blockchain using the Omni platform, it was later renamed USTether and, finally, USDT. In addition to Bitcoin, USDT was later updated to work on the Ethereum, EOS, Tron, Algorand, and OMG blockchains. > > # PROs > > **USDT is well established** > > It has built a long history of resilience, reliability and trust because it has been around for a [while](https://www.wsj.com/articles/BL-MBB-23780) (around 8 years in the cryptocurrency market). This had helped to convince clients that the stablecoin is [legitimate](https://www.certik.com/projects/tether?utm_source=CMC&utm_campaign=AuditByCertiKLink). > > As of this year, USDT currently is in the top ten cryptocurrencies by [market cap](https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/tether) with a 24-hour trading volume of around 45 billion dollars and a total number of addresses of up to 4.5 million. In its last known [audit](https://www.fairyproof.com/doc/111.pdf) in 2021 it has been considered to have *"No vulnerabilities with critical, high, medium or low-severity."* > > **Wide acceptance** > > Tether has multiple gateways for customers (retail, exchanges, and companies) because it is built on several leading [blockchains](https://tether.to/en/supported-protocols), including Algorand, Avalanche, Bitcoin Cash's Simple Ledger Protocol (SLP), Ethereum, EOS, Liquid Network, Omni, Polygon, Tezos, Tron, Solana, and Statemine. These transport protocols are made up of open source software that interfaces with blockchains to allow for the issuance and redemption of Tether tokens. > > Furthermore, it has been available on major exchanges such as Bitfinex, Binance, Coinbase, Kraken and [more](https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/tether#markets), Offering a plethora of pairs for users to choose from or that of which is available in their region although as of lately some exchanges have been switching to Circle's USDC over growing concerns of legal issues related with Tether. > > **Buffer against volatility** > > One of the primary functions of stablecoins is to act as a [hedge](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/341245986_Are_stablecoins_truly_diversifiers_hedges_or_safe_havens_against_traditional_cryptocurrencies_as_their_name_suggests) when crypto markets are in a downturn. Because the aforementioned market is extremely volatile, traders and investors want some sort of buffer against this without having to directly trade their crypto for fiat as to also avoid larger fees as well. Supported by its large market capitalization, USDT should be less volatile and thus safer. > > **Announcement of a full audit** > > Tether's CTO Paolo Ardoino recently stated in an [interview](https://www.euromoney.com/article/2a8dpi4tnxahuu98a251c/fintech/cryptocurrencies-tether-is-open-to-providing-more-information) with Euromoney that the company is preparing for a full audit with an accounting firm called MHA Cayman (which also handles Tether's [quarterly assurance opinions/reports](https://assets.ctfassets.net/vyse88cgwfbl/1np5dpcwuHrWJ4AgUgI3Vn/e0dac722de3cea07766e05c52773748b/Tether_Assurance_Consolidated_Reserves_Report_2022-03-31__3_.pdf)). According to the CTO in the interview, MHA Cayman is one of the "*top 12*" accounting firms, and most top accounting firms deny requests for full audits due to the associated reputational risks. In the future, hopefully, this will provide more security and transparency to its users against the number of allegations and investigations it is currently facing. > > **Despite everything, USDT is still here** > > From the past legal troubles it has faced, the ones it's facing right now, the vast amount of criticisms from different facets off the internet and the several crypto winters it endured. USDT is still alive and kicking. Will it still be the top stablecoin in the next 5 years? Unlikely, but I am for certain it was a major part for the growth and expansion of crypto's fetal years. Moving forward it's up to them, the people behind Tether, if they will finally redeem themselves against all the allegations, criticisms, troubles, and not just do another settlement. > > ^(Sources:) > > [^(https://tether.to/en/faqs/)](https://tether.to/en/faqs/) > > [^(https://tether.to/en/supported-protocols)](https://tether.to/en/supported-protocols) > > [^(https://tether.to/en/transparency/)](https://tether.to/en/transparency/) > > [^(https://tether.to/en/transparency/#reports)](https://tether.to/en/transparency/#reports) > > [^(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tether\_(cryptocurrency))](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tether_(cryptocurrency)) > > [^(https://assets.ctfassets.net/vyse88cgwfbl/5UWgHMvz071t2Cq5yTw5vi/c9798ea8db99311bf90ebe0810938b01/TetherWhitePaper.pdf)](https://assets.ctfassets.net/vyse88cgwfbl/5UWgHMvz071t2Cq5yTw5vi/c9798ea8db99311bf90ebe0810938b01/TetherWhitePaper.pdf) > > [^(https://www.wsj.com/articles/BL-MBB-23780)](https://www.wsj.com/articles/BL-MBB-23780) > > [^(https://www.certik.com/projects/tether?utm\_source=CMC&utm\_campaign=AuditByCertiKLink)](https://www.certik.com/projects/tether?utm_source=CMC&utm_campaign=AuditByCertiKLink) > > [^(https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/tether)](https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/tether) > > [^(https://www.fairyproof.com/doc/111.pdf)](https://www.fairyproof.com/doc/111.pdf) > > [^(https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/tether#markets)](https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/tether#markets) > > [^(https://www.researchgate.net/publication/341245986\_Are\_stablecoins\_truly\_diversifiers\_hedges\_or\_safe\_havens\_against\_traditional\_cryptocurrencies\_as\_their\_name\_suggests)](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/341245986_Are_stablecoins_truly_diversifiers_hedges_or_safe_havens_against_traditional_cryptocurrencies_as_their_name_suggests) > > [^(https://www.researchgate.net/publication/339263534\_What\_is\_Stablecoin\_A\_Survey\_on\_Price\_Stabilization\_Mechanisms\_for\_Decentralized\_Payment\_Systems)](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/339263534_What_is_Stablecoin_A_Survey_on_Price_Stabilization_Mechanisms_for_Decentralized_Payment_Systems) > > [^(https://www.researchgate.net/publication/332458820\_Is\_Cryptocurrency\_a\_Hedge\_or\_a\_Safe\_Haven\_for\_International\_Indices\_A\_Comprehensive\_and\_Dynamic\_Perspective)](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/332458820_Is_Cryptocurrency_a_Hedge_or_a_Safe_Haven_for_International_Indices_A_Comprehensive_and_Dynamic_Perspective) > > [^(https://www.euromoney.com/article/2a8dpi4tnxahuu98a251c/fintech/cryptocurrencies-tether-is-open-to-providing-more-information)](https://www.euromoney.com/article/2a8dpi4tnxahuu98a251c/fintech/cryptocurrencies-tether-is-open-to-providing-more-information) > > [^(https://assets.ctfassets.net/vyse88cgwfbl/1np5dpcwuHrWJ4AgUgI3Vn/e0dac722de3cea07766e05c52773748b/Tether\_Assurance\_Consolidated\_Reserves\_Report\_2022-03-31\_\_3\_.pdf)](https://assets.ctfassets.net/vyse88cgwfbl/1np5dpcwuHrWJ4AgUgI3Vn/e0dac722de3cea07766e05c52773748b/Tether_Assurance_Consolidated_Reserves_Report_2022-03-31__3_.pdf) ***** Would you like to learn more?

I didn’t claim it’s feasible. I used a dramatic example to explain how improbable the idea of SOL following the path of EOS is. Have you ever heard the phrase “when pigs fly”? No one thinks pigs are going to start flying, you fucking genius.
