Glassnode Analyst: Tether is CBDC

Glassnode analyst @_Checkɱate stated on social media platform X that Tether is a CBDC. Travis is correct in saying that if the US government can shut down Russia's reserves, it is difficult to say they do not have the ability to shut down Tether's reserves. The most likely reality is that as fiat currencies collapse, developing countries will switch to the US dollar, and USDT is objectively superior to the peso, bolivar, and lira. Emerging markets mainly provide funding for US retirement, medical, military activities, and government generosity. Ironically, this is a win-win situation for both parties.
