Tether Gold-Backed Stablecoin Rises In Demand

The demand of Tether gold-backed stablecoin has risen up in demand. It was valued at $1,902 on July 24. The price has put the gold in reach of the commodity’s all-time high set in September 2011.

Meanwhile, Tether’s USD-backed stablecoin (USDT) reached a market capitalization of more than $10 billion on July 22.
