Regarding liabilities, Tether’s report revealed over $104 billion tied to “digital tokens issued.” However, the value of the company’s reserve assets exceeded its liabilities by more than $6.2 billion as of March 31.

Tether remains a prominent holder of Bitcoin, with its “bc1q” wallet currently holding 75,354 BTC, worth over $4.38 billion. This makes Tether the seventh-largest Bitcoin holder. 

Notably, on March 31, Tether acquired 8,888 Bitcoin valued at $626 million from Bitfinex. Despite Bitcoin experiencing a drop below the $60,000 mark, Tether has accumulated an unrealized profit of over 91%, surpassing $2 billion.
