Tether Won’t Redeem Americans, Terrorists and Other Bad Actors

They also acknowledge the anxieties about solvency but say that the audit is taking time since the due diligence being performed is substantial.
Holders are shipped from Tether to exchanges if they wish to market USDT for USD or other cryptocurrencies. They invite qualified and exchanges corporate clients to get them directly for arrangements. On the other hand, the company itself “cannot create or redeem tether for any U.S.-based clients at this moment.”
There are also a few different points that holders ought to take heed. The machine is still processing a backlog of transactions delivered following the shutdown, therefore it will take a few days for deposits delivered in the past month to become available in wallets. New efforts to deposit to old wallets or addresses are not advised and may lead to lost money. In addition, until the launch of the new platform, selling and purchasing will not be possible through tether.to.
They also attempt to clarify misconceptions about the conditions of Service, providing the firm the capability to deny service arbitrarily. But they add that “we need to and will take steps to stop terrorists and other bad actors from trafficking in Tethers. Accordingly, where, as an instance, a redemption of Tether will violate relevant laws, that redemption will continue to be illegal”
