Stablecoins Like Tether Face Stronger Oversight

Stablecoins like Tether will be facing more intense scrutiny from the SEC. This is due to the collapse of Terra (UST) in May 2022. Tether has already been in settlement with the United States Department of Transportation, paying $18.5 million in 2021. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission fined them $41 million for misrepresenting their reserves. Tether has only provided limited information regarding its reserves and holdings since then. Tether currently has a price of $1 and a market cap of $79.45 billion, making it the largest stablecoin in the crypto world.

Bitcoin (BTC) decreased by 3% to $26,955.61 and Ethereum’s price dropped 3.5% to $1705.56. Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao said that the CFTC’s civil complaint was unexpected and disappointing. However, Bitcoin was able to avoid major losses. It is possible that this was due to Binance supporting a shaky market.
