#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?

#Bitcoin Cash Pro-Arguments Below is a Bitcoin Cash pro-argument written by roberthonker. > **Taken from u\/thegreatmcmeek's submission from the last round** > > - To me, having multiple node implementations rather than a single client is one of the most important pros any crypto can have. It encourages competition and innovation, but also allows for the sharing of ideas so the ecosystem as a whole can grow. Most importantly, it removes the attack vector of controlling development through the repo gatekeepers - if the devs decide to implement (or not implement) changes which the network wants, there is likely to be an alternate node implementation which they can use instead > - There have already been significant demonstrations of the network capacity, both in terms of high numbers of tx/s, and sustained BTC-level volume over months - neither of which resulted in increases in miner fees, delays in transaction confirmation times, or drop-off of active node counts. It's clear at this stage that the argument that large blocks lead to centralisation is not only flawed, but flat out wrong > - Development on the BCH chain has been incredible over the past few years. The reactivation of OP_RETURN, the memo protocol, SLP tokens, Coloured Coins, SmartBCH, Cashfusion, Cash accounts, self-hosted payment gateways, schnorr sigs, non-segwit malleability fix, chained 0-conf transactions, the list goes on > > The question to ask about BCH is ultimately, what is it trying to be? > > It's trying to be decentralised peer-to-peer digital money for the whole world. It's not a meme coin, or a vehicle for the wealthy to store their value at the expense of the poor, nor a centrally-controlled coin targeting a specific financial niche. It's the Bitcoin you read about in the whitepaper all those years ago, just using decentralised development and under a different name. ***** Would you like to learn more?

#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.

#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.

#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.

#Bitcoin Cash Pro-Arguments Below is a Bitcoin Cash pro-argument written by roberthonker. > **Taken from u\/thegreatmcmeek's submission from the last round** > > - To me, having multiple node implementations rather than a single client is one of the most important pros any crypto can have. It encourages competition and innovation, but also allows for the sharing of ideas so the ecosystem as a whole can grow. Most importantly, it removes the attack vector of controlling development through the repo gatekeepers - if the devs decide to implement (or not implement) changes which the network wants, there is likely to be an alternate node implementation which they can use instead > - There have already been significant demonstrations of the network capacity, both in terms of high numbers of tx/s, and sustained BTC-level volume over months - neither of which resulted in increases in miner fees, delays in transaction confirmation times, or drop-off of active node counts. It's clear at this stage that the argument that large blocks lead to centralisation is not only flawed, but flat out wrong > - Development on the BCH chain has been incredible over the past few years. The reactivation of OP_RETURN, the memo protocol, SLP tokens, Coloured Coins, SmartBCH, Cashfusion, Cash accounts, self-hosted payment gateways, schnorr sigs, non-segwit malleability fix, chained 0-conf transactions, the list goes on > > The question to ask about BCH is ultimately, what is it trying to be? > > It's trying to be decentralised peer-to-peer digital money for the whole world. It's not a meme coin, or a vehicle for the wealthy to store their value at the expense of the poor, nor a centrally-controlled coin targeting a specific financial niche. It's the Bitcoin you read about in the whitepaper all those years ago, just using decentralised development and under a different name. ***** Would you like to learn more?

Nothing, actually. If it's a gaming coin that is also the "reward" for the game (like SLP), it's very risky as a long term hold, imo. And unfortunately, I don't see gaming emerging as the next narrative for now, so I'm not exposed to any gaming token. I'd prefer exposure to AI narrative rather than gaming 😅

ohhh a familiar shitcoin, SLP from a shit crypto game axie is up 50% today

I’ll agree it is an oversimplification, but you also understand that the price is set by supply/demand. So when you inherently increase the supply without increasing demand, you inherently lower prices. Eventually those additional coins will find their way onto order books on exchanges. I just find it baffling to at we have some users here who’s seem to think that increasing supply (inflation) doesn’t have any negative impacts on pricing. If you want a perfect example, take a look at SLP, it’s inherently inflationary, and given away for free for playing a Web3 game. No matter how much the market cap rises, or demand rises, the inflationary rate will always counteract any gains made, making it a terrible long term investment (although it does bring in some nasty short squeezes from time to time for short term traders). It’s the Ferrari anology, you have 100 people and only 1 with a Ferrari, with everyone else also wanting one, would obviously make that Ferrari valuable. Now Ferrari hands out 3 cars to the other 99 people while the original purchaser still owns one, and not only that but their Ferrari’s were given away for free! Expecting that to not have a negative reaction to price, and that supply itself has no relationship with price is absurd IMO. Of course the markets are complex, and there’s more to it to basic supply/demand, but these are basic fundementals of the market here.

I am going to be honest. I was hungry for BONK since the first time I seen it. Then I just saw SPL, which I mistook for SLP (Smooth Love Potion) and totally discredited it because I am stupid. But I just went all in, because I am still stupid enough to have hope.

Ahh. The SPL. I guess I am stupid because the SPL looked like SLP from AXIE to me, and I thought it somehow was associated with AXIE even though it's SOL, until I started looking into it before the listing. 😂

#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.

Oh that makes sense. So the change in value will be reflected in the "my position" section in the number of moons and ETH? So "my position" isn't showing how many moons or ETH I have, because I actually have 0, but actually showing an estimate of how many moons and ETH I would get when I redeem the SLP tokens, and that amount goes up over time. Is that right?

#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.
