Technical Collaboration Enables Institutions to Trade USDt at Nasdaq Speeds

ROAD TOWN, BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS, SEPT. 9, 2020 8:00 AM PSTTether, the blockchain-enabled platform that powers the largest stablecoin by market capitalization, and Solana, the world’s first web-scale blockchain, today announced a new initiative that will integrate Tether (USDt) into the Solana network.

According to Solana, it will be possible to exchange USDt at speeds greater than 50,000 transactions per second—often for less than $0.00001 per transaction—marking a major advance in the quest for high-speed decentralized finance (DeFi) applications.

“Tether is the life blood of DeFi, and an important pillar of the crypto community at large. In order for developers to leverage the real potential of Solana, an integration with USDt was absolutely essential. Solana was originally designed to support thousands of transactions at Nasdaq speed. Today, with Tether’s support, Solana is finally capable of realizing that dream.”

– said Anatoly Yakovenko of the Solana Foundation

“Our integration with Solana serves a growing ecosystem of projects that are now getting developed and launched on Solana, Serum being a notable example,”

– said Paolo Ardoino, CTO of Tether

Solana is one of the fastest-growing blockchains by both market capitalization and use. Prominent projects such as Project Serum, a fully functional decentralized exchange with trustless cross-chain trading backed by FTX and Alameda Research; Torus, a seamless key management system; and Chainlink, the leading decentralized oracle network, have all announced planned integrations with Solana within the last six months. Tether brings the world’s most trusted, stable, and liquid stablecoin into the Solana ecosystem, making it possible to build ultra high-speed, low-cost DeFi applications for the first time.
