Swap Tether (USDT) to Tezos (XTZ)

Swapping Tether (USDT) to Tezos (XTZ) with Zengo is simple, safe, and secure. Within a few taps on your mobile device, you can trade your USDT tokens to XTZ and vice versa.

Tether (USDT) was one of the first stablecoins, a cryptocurrency designed to hold a stable value – in this case, in line with the US dollar. First introduced in 2014 by iFinex, the company that operates the Bitfinex exchange. Tether was previously called Realcoin before adopting its current name. The founders of Tether (USDT) had a dual mission: to address the notorious instability of cryptocurrencies and to simplify the process of converting crypto to traditional fiat currencies. Each USDT unit is claimed to be backed by actual US dollars held in the company’s bank account, which is intended to safeguard the coin’s stability. Around the globe, USDT is being used to convert fiat money to crypto and to facilitate transactions between crypto markets and conventional financial systems. Although it is mostly recognized as an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain, it also functions on other blockchains. In some respects, Tether shares similarities with other stablecoins, such as DAI and USDC, which also strive to hold a stable value pegged to a specific fiat currency.

Tezos (XTZ) is an innovative platform designed to facilitate the development and execution of smart contracts and decentralized applications (Dapps). It was created in 2014 by the husband and wife team of Arthur and Kathleen Breitman and launched as an ICO in 2017. Tezos was designed to introduce a self-amending blockchain to the market, thus addressing the challenge of hard forks in blockchains. Its native token, XTZ, can be used for various applications, including participating in network governance through a process known as baking, which is similar to staking. Since XTZ uses a proof of stake protocol, XTZ cannot be mined, but it can be purchased and used for trading.
