Crypto Industry News:
Stablecoin operator Tether plans to release stablecoin supported by a Chinese yuan, according to local industry media.
Bitfinex shareholder Zhao Dong informed the market that Tether – the operator behind the leading USDT stablecoin – plans to release a new stablecoin in the near future. He would be supported by a Chinese yuan kept on foreign accounts under the name CNHT.
Zhao also reportedly said his digital asset management platform, RenrenBit, would be the first to invest in the project. He also pointed out that Tether and Bitfinex cryptocurrency exchange are interrelated and that they have the same management team.
The relationship between Bitfinex and Tether sparked suspicion after an attorney general’s office in New York filed a complaint against iFinex, Bitfinex and Tether in April. Prosecutors said companies deceived New York investors by concealing a $ 850 million loss on the Bitfinex trading platform.
Bitfinex and Tether responded to the recent ruling of Judge Joel Cohen in a case pending against companies, maintaining that the allegations are unfounded.
