There are a lot of questions surrounding Tether, the third largest crypto by market cap. With the collapse of UST, people want to be sure that there is liquid backing dollar for dollar behind USDT. Is the world’s biggest stablecoin too big to fail?

Today we welcome the Chief Technology Officer of Tether, Paolo Ardoino, to the show to ask these tough questions. We also discuss FTX, audits and the future of the cryptos.

We’re a fairly stable podcast with unstable podcast hosts. Hopefully our guest can bring some stability to the show on episode #655 of the Bad Crypto Podcast.
