“Amid these uncertain and challenging times, the utility, security and viability of digital currencies have come to the forefront. People are looking for alternatives to antiquated banking and payment systems.”

Approximately 2/3rd of all Tether is presently used on the Ethereum blockchain network which has been decelerating the network and making it more costly to use. As per Gas Station, US Dollar Tether is the 2nd biggest source of network fees with a gas usage of around nine million dollars over the last 30 days.
