Tether is a blockchain-enabled platform launched in 2014 to make it easier to use fiat currency digitally. Every USD-pegged Tether token (USD₮) is pegged to the dollar one-to-one; therefore, 1 USD₮ is always valued at 1 USD by Tether.
Tether uses a more modern approach to money to disrupt the traditional financial structure. It has made strides by enabling clients to transact with traditional currencies via the blockchain while avoiding the inherent volatility and complexity of digital currencies. Being the first blockchain-enabled platform to enable the digital use of traditional currencies (a familiar, stable accounting unit), Tether has democratised cross-border blockchain transactions.
