Accounts that monitor Blockchains for significant mints, trades, and token transfers have flagged minting of $1 billion USDT in Tether’s Treasury, which is expected to provide near-term USDT liquidity to the Tron Network.
According to Paolo Ardoino, the chief technology officer of Tether, the USDT tokens would be used as stock to “replenish” the Tron network. Ardoino added, “Note this is a authorized but not issued transaction, meaning that this amount will be used as inventory for next period issuance requests and chain swaps.”
The FAQ page of the Tether website mentioned that “by creating ‘authorized but not issued’ USDT, Tether limits the number of times Tether’s signers need to access their authorization private keys, thereby reducing their exposure to security threats.”
Authorizing USDT in the Tether Treasury enables the company to issue USDT instantly once customer funds are received, ensuring that the issuer keeps all of its reserves.
