Tether To Unleash $1B Liquidity Flood On Tron Network For Imminent Issuance Demands

Zinger Key Points
  • The authorization ensures instant USDT issuance once Tether receives customer funds.
  • In 2023, Tether's market value exceeded $83 billion, minting around $16 billion in USDT.

Blockchain oversight platforms have identified a $1 billion approval in Tether's USDT/USD Treasury, aimed at enhancing short-term USDT liquidity on the Tron network.

WhaleAlert, a blockchain monitoring service, spotlighted this massive authorization on microblogging platform X.

This revelation caught the attention of Tether CTO Paolo Ardoino, who said, "the USDT tokens would be used as inventory to 'replenish' the Tron TRON/USD network."

Ardoino emphasized that this was merely an authorization, not an actual issuance.

The earmarked funds are intended to cater to imminent issuance demands and chain swaps within the Tron ecosystem.

Incorporating insights from such significant blockchain movements will be a topic of interest at Benzinga's Future of Digital Assets conference on Nov. 14.

Tether's official guidelines explain the concept of "authorized but not issued" USDT as a protective measure for the token creation and issuance procedure.

The guideline states, "By creating 'authorized but not issued' USDT, Tether limits the number of times Tether’s signers need to access their authorization private keys, thereby reducing their exposure to security threats."

This pre-authorization in Tether's treasury ensures the firm can instantly issue USDT once it receives customer funds, guaranteeing a full backing of its reserves at all times.

In 2023, Tether's market value surpassed the $83 billion mark, with a minting of approximately $16 billion in USDT since the year's commencement.

USDT continues to dominate as the top US Dollar-anchored stablecoin in terms of market capitalization.

On the other hand, the market cap of Circle's USDC/USD stablecoin has dwindled, dropping from $50 billion at 2023's onset to a current $26 billion.
