Beginning of the End of Tether?

Tether's value is only equal to the actual US dollars they have in the bank. Does anyone really believe they have US$2.25B sitting in some bank? No auditor believes this as their latest "auditor" just denounced involvement.
Make sure to run your charts with USD and not USDT to get true value. Find a way to convert money on the sidelines to real fiat.

Kommentar: I wanted to capture a snapshot of current large holdings of tether. In a couple days we can look again and see who's balances have depleted to prop tether back up again.

Kommentar: Volume tried to move price back to $1 but fell back down as soon as pumping stopped. is down so unable to see the "transparency". Proof of funds on website show holdings of $442M on Sep 15, 2017 which was the market cap at that time, but nothing new showing proof of the current $2B++ current market cap. All major exchanges are reducing their holdings of tether at
I remain skeptical.
Keep skeptical, and watch Tether become the future Dollar, a better USD than the current shady Fractional Banking System.

@ubacilio, if tether was to become the future dollar it would have to unpeg from the dollar and stay around the current buying power of US dollar while the USD loses it's value. That could happen with major bad event in US. Would also require easier entry into crypto as it's too difficult now. Good comment.
I saw tether as a safe port to save the money during a recession of the whole cripto market. When holding many different coins it is expensive to turn they all in fiat and then whe a new bull run start, move back to cripto. Is there another stable coin like tether? Someone should create a coin based on real stuff like gold, oil??, land or fiat.
realstep SamuelBob
@SamuelBob, I think it's fine to use tether as long as you understand the risks. It's important to understand that it can fluctuate with regards to USD for example, recently it was 2% lower so that affects the actual trading value. The other risk is that there currently is no proof that it's backed by USD, so it could drop quickly on a very negative event. As long as you understand these risks, USDT could be a good vehicle for short term trading but not HODL of course.
I heard about a gold backed crypto that looks promising but have not investigated it deeply: DigixDAO (DGD)

It looks like the volume of tethers is rising on the daily chart. Not good. It needs to be small or the impact it will have on the crypto market will be massive.
