This price declination of Monero [XMR] and Dash [DASH] acts as a catalyst to get overtaken by Tether [USDT]. After beating these altcoins, Tether [USDT] has come up to the 12th position among all the cryptocurrencies. Tether [USDT] is the emerging digital currency in the crypto market where the investors decide to make investment with the advancing bull market. Recently, BCFocus has reported about machines cryptojacked by the hackers to mine Monero [XMR] by Operation Prowli.
Potential of Tether [USDT] in the market
The current market capitalisation of Tether [USDT] is marked at $2.5 billion. The downfall in the bear market negatively impacted the position of Dash [DASH] and Monero [XMR]. This suggests the number of people owning digital currencies have shifted into the domain of altcoins like Monero [XMR], Dash [DASH] and Tether [USDT]. The market cap of Tether [USDT] comprises 25% of the total crypto industry.
The market capitalisation of Tether [USDT] is directly linked with the total amount of dollars possessed by the owners. A JPMorgan analysis suggests that in February 2017 an amount of $6 billion was introduced into the cryptocurrency industry. At this time, the total value of market capitalisation was marked at $300 billion. It is, indeed, natural that the altcoin with the 12th ranking is responsible for 20% of the volume ranking in a times-pan of 24 hours. This clearly indicates the total sum of money involved in the upcoming bull market.
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) of U.S. on 6th June, 2018 denied a Freedom of Information (FOI). This request is meant for subpoenas issuing Tether [USDT] in 2017. In May, 2018, the pair of Tether [USDT] and TrueUSD (TUSD) was added in the Binance exchange. This permits swapping of stablecoin which costs $1 dollar. This creates an opportunity for investors to drift away from Tether [USDT]. In the form of substitution TrueUSDs may be exchangeable for U.S. dollars while undergoing audit by third party.
Same pairing is available on the Kraken exchange. Bittrex bears the pairing of USD/USDT and USD/TUSD. On 30th June, 2018 USDT pairing has been lately given by Ontology on the Binance exchange.
