Tether’s Increases Reserve Despite Controversies
Despite its profit, it is important to note that Tether has been the subject of some controversy and scrutiny in the past, particularly regarding the transparency of its reserve holdings.
In August, an article suggested that crypto companies are not quite transparent when it comes to their financial statements. In response to these concerns, Tether has taken steps to increase transparency by releasing regular attestations that provide information about the composition of its reserves.
Also, Tether was accused of utilizing forged paperwork and shell firms to get banking access when they were unable to access the international banking system.
