Tether’s USDT Stablecoin Goes Live on TON Blockchain

Tether, the stablecoin operator, is deepening its connection with Telegram’s Web3 ecosystem by rolling out its stablecoins, such as Tether USDT, on The Open Network (TON).

Tether Operations revealed on April 19 the launch of its Tether USDT stablecoin, pegged to the U.S. dollar, and the Tether Gold (XAUT) stablecoin, pegged to gold, on the TON blockchain.

This announcement coincided with keynote speeches by Tether CEO Paolo Ardoino and Telegram founder Pavel Durov at the Token2049 crypto event in Dubai.

Anonymous crypto trader Rekt Capital elaborated in an April 17 post that Bitcoin’s 14% decline from its March 13 peak of $73,600 was a predictable aspect of a ‘pre-halving retrace.’

The Bitcoin halving, entailing a 50% reduction in block rewards, is anticipated on April 20, and Rekt asserted that its price movement is currently following a pattern akin to past halving cycles.
