What is USDT

Initially called Realcoin, Tether (USDT) was launched in 2014 by Brock Pierce, Reeve Collins, and Craig Sellars. USDT is an Ethereum-based stablecoin that is supposed to be pegged and backed to the U.S. dollar.


USDT tokens enable users to transact with fiat-like stability in the volatile crypto market. Users can buy USDT and sell or trade cryptocurrencies using it without worrying about the price fluctuations of a typical crypto asset.


Furthermore, USDT is a multi-blockchain asset. It is available on leading blockchains like Ethereum, Solana, Tron, Algorand, Avalanche, Bitcoin Cash’s Simple Ledger Protocol (SLP), EOS, Liquid Network, Omni, and more.


USDT's price stability mechanism makes it a popular stablecoin choice among crypto traders who have a convenient way to conduct digital transactions without the worry of price and value fluctuations. All major cryptocurrencies have trading pairs with USDT. Therefore, you can access high liquidity transactions if you buy USDT.

Cryptocurrency is a new class of digital assets popularized by Bitcoin (BTC). While cryptocurrencies or digital/virtual currencies work much like their traditional fiat counterparts, the biggest difference between the two is the lack of centralized infrastructure and banks.


Where fiat currencies are issued by and kept in banks, digital currencies are issued via distributed mechanisms that follow strict consensus protocols. This translates into cryptocurrencies being stored on blockchains which are largely immutable, much more transparent and globally accessible.


Given their utility and growing list of use cases, cryptocurrencies are gaining popularity and one way to buy cryptocurrency is to use a reliable crypto exchange like OKX. On OKX, users can sign up, verify their identities and start buying Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies instantly using credit cards, debit cards, bank transfers and other supported payment methods.


Typically, when you buy cryptocurrency, you have to store it in a dedicated wallet, but the security of your digital assets depends on how safely your private key is kept. Every cryptocurrency wallet has a private key which allows complete access to the stored digital assets. If you lose your private key, you effectively lose your funds.


Using an exchange like OKX also facilitates users because their newly purchased or traded digital assets are kept securely on the platform and are credited into users' accounts, available to be sold or transferred as required.


Ultimately, users should always buy cryptocurrency from a reliable exchange, and if they withdraw their digital assets to a personal wallet, they should keep their private keys safe and backed up to ensure the security of their funds.
