In an exciting announcement, Tether (USDT), the world’s leading stablecoin issuer, has revealed its plans to expand onto the Kava (KAVA) blockchain, an innovative and interoperable layer-1 blockchain. This move has triggered a surge in the price of the decentralized finance (DeFi) platform.
Trading at $0.934 at the time of writing, KAVA has experienced a remarkable 12.9% increase within the past 24 hours, indicating the market’s positive response to this development.
Highlighting the exceptional security of the Kava network, Paolo Ardonio, the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Tether, expressed his enthusiasm in the recently released press statement. Ardonio stated, “We are delighted to announce the launch of USDT on Kava, granting its strong community access to the world’s first, most stable, most trusted, and widely adopted stablecoin. The Kava network, with its impeccable four-year track record devoid of any security concerns, is of paramount importance in safeguarding USDT users.”
By joining forces, Tether and Kava aspire to revolutionize the future of decentralized finance, establishing a resilient and all-encompassing ecosystem that benefits users across the globe.
Aside from Kava, USDT is currently operational on several prominent blockchain platforms, including Ethereum (ETH), Polkadot (DOT), Solana (SOL), TRON (TRX), and the BNB Chain.
In response to recent reports regarding Tether’s holdings of Chinese securities, the company has addressed the issue following the public disclosure of its reserves as part of a plea settlement with the New York Attorney General (NYAG). The settlement aimed to address the allegations against the firm, accusing it of inadequately securing the reserves of its stablecoin.
