Each tether issued will be backed by the equivalent amount of currency unit (one USDTether equals one dollar).Tether is centralized and dependent on your trust of Bitfinex/Tether Limited, and that the people behind it are honest people. For the new entrants to this market it will be greatly beneficial understand the timeline of Tether and their connection to Bitfinex.
Professional auditors will regularly verify, sign, and publish our underlying bank balance and financial transfer statement.
|Fiat Inflow/Market Cap Ratio||Tether as % of total market (no margin)||Tether as % of total market (15% on margin)||Tether as % of total market (25% on margin)|
|JP Morgan estimate (50:1)||27.5 %||36.9 %||43.3 %|
Author’s opinion - it is highly unlikely that Tether is growing through any organic business process, rather that they are printing in response to market conditions.https://www.tetherreport.com
Tether printing moves the market appreciably; 48.8% of BTC’s price rise in the period studied occurred in the two-hour periods following the arrival of 91 different Tether grants to the Bitfinex wallet.
Bitfinex withdrawal/deposit statistics are unusual and would give rise to further scrutiny in a typical accounting environment.
This engagement does not contemplate tests of accounting records or the performance of other procedures performed in an audit or attest engagement. Our procedures performed are not for the purpose of providing assurance...In addition, our services do not include determination of compliance with laws and regulations in any jurisdiction.They state right from the beginning that this is a consultancy job (not an audit), and that its not meant to be assurance to third parties. Doing a consultancy job is just doing a task asked by your customer. In a consultancy job you take information as true from the client, and you have no mandate to verify whether your customer's claims are true or not. The way they checked is simply asking Tether to provide them the information:
All inquiries made through the consulting process have been directed towards, and the data obtained from, the Client and personnel responsible for maintaining such information.Tether provided a screenshots of twp bank balances. One of these is in the name of Tether Limited, and while the other is a personal account of an individual who Tether Limited claims has a trust agreement with them:
As of September 15, 2017, the bank held $60,919,810 in an account in the name of an in individual for the benefit of Tether Limited. FLPP obtained an engagement letter for an interim settlement plan between that individual and Tether Limited and that according to Tether Limited, is the relevant agreement with the trustee. FLLP did not evaluate the substance of the letter and makes no representation about its legality.Even worse is that later on in Note 1, they clearly claim that there is no actual evidence that this engagement letter or trust has any legal merit:
Note 1: FLLP makes no representations about sufficiency or enforceability of any trust agreement between the trustee and the ClientEssentially what this is saying is that the trust agreement may not even be worth the paper it’s printed on.
“FLLP did not evaluate the terms of the above bank accounts and makes no representations about the clients ability to access funds from the accounts or whether the funds are committed for purposes other than Tether token redemptions”Basically Tether gave them a name of an individual with $60 million in their account according to a screenshot, Tether then gave them a letter saying that there is a trust agreement between this individual and Tether Limited. They also have account with $382 million but no guarantee that this account holds to any lien or other commitments, or that it can be accessed.
If traders lose confidence in it and its value starts to drop, “people will run for the door,” says Carlson, the former Wall Street trader. If Tether can’t meet all its customers’ demand for dollars (and its Terms of Service suggest that in many cases it won’t even try), tether holders will try to snap up other cryptocurrencies instead, temporarily causing prices for those currencies to soar. With tether’s role as an inter-exchange facilitator compromised, investors might lose faith in cryptocurrencies more generally. “At the end of the day, people would be losing substantial sums, and in the long term this would be very bad for cryptocurrencies,” says Emin Gun Sirer, a Cornell professor and co-director of its Initiative for Cryptocurrencies and Smart Contracts.https://www.wired.com/story/why-tethers-collapse-would-be-bad-for-cryptocurrencies/
Another concern is that Bitfinex might simply shut down, pocketing the bitcoins it has allegedly been stockpiling. Because people who trade on Bitfinex allow the exchange to hold their money while they speculate, these traders could face substantial losses. “The exchanges are like unregulated banks and could run off with everyone’s money,” says Tony Arcieri, a former Square employee turned entrepreneur trying to build a legally regulated exchange.

Wer in Bitcoin, Verge, IOTA und Co. investiert, kann immense Gewinne erzielen. Ganz sorglos kann man mit ihnen jedoch nicht handeln, denn unter Umständen fallen Steuern an. 10.10.2019 In May, Jeremy Liew – one of the first investors in Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP) – and the CEO of Blockchain, Peter Smith, predicted Bitcoin would trade for $500,000 by 2030. Bitcoin prices seem expensive at today’s (Dec. 6, 2017) price of $13,011, but that may be cheap compared to where the price of Bitcoin is heading. Legendary tech entrepreneur John McAfee predicts the price of the cryptocurrency will reach $1 million by 2020, meaning Bitcoin could make you a millionaire in the next three years if his prediction is correct. Meet the 'Bondi bitcoin brothers': Two best friends who make $2,000 a day trading cryptocurrency will both be MILLIONAIRES by the end of the year - and say it's not too late to strike it rich A bitcoin millionaire and his wife, who have been in hiding for 18 months, have spoken of their three-in-a-bed sex session with a teenage model on the night she plunged to her death in Malaysia.
