USDT to DAI – Swap Tether to Dai

Swapping Tether (USDT) to DAI is a safe and effortless process with Zengo. Within just a few taps, you can trade your Tether for DAI or the other way around. Get started with Zengo, the most secure Web3-ready cryptocurrency wallet app, today. 

Tether is an ERC-20 token that is pegged to the American Dollar, meaning that it is designed to always be worth around $1. For this reason, Tether is called a stablecoin. Tether (USDT) tokens are issued by iFinex, a FinTech company that also owns the BitFinex cryptocurrency exchange. Officially launched in 2014 as RealCoin, it rebranded later that year and became the third-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization over the years. iFinex guarantees that a Dollar fully backs every Tether token and that users can redeem their Tether tokens for Dollars at any given time via the official Tether website or other fiat offramp services like Zengo.

DAI, previously known as Sai, is a stablecoin on the Ethereum blockchain that uses the ERC-20 protocol. It is pegged to the value of the United States Dollar through a series of smart contracts. The issuance of DAI tokens is regulated through MakerDAO, a decentralized autonomous organization composed of owners of its governance token MKR. DAI and MakerDAO are the first examples of decentralized finance applications that achieved significant adoption in the cryptocurrency community.

Trading and investing in digital assets can be fun, exciting, and profitable. However, most of the cryptocurrency industry is still unregulated, and the majority of cryptocurrency tokens are highly volatile. Zengo goes to extreme lengths to protect your digital asset portfolio and grant you access to Web3, Daaps, and decentralized finance, but it doesn’t constitute financial advice, nor does it recommend buying or selling any cryptocurrencies. Always do your own research before investing in any cryptocurrency.
