Tether (USDT) is a stablecoin available on several blockchains that aims to maintain the same value as the US dollar. The company behind Tether, Tether Limited, claims to hold reserves that fully back each USDT. As of 2021, USDT is the most widely-used stablecoin in the world, with a market cap over $30 billion. Please note: at this time, Coinbase only supports ERC-20 USDT running on the Ethereum blockchain.
One of the most common requests we hear from customers is to be able to buy and sell more cryptocurrencies on Coinbase. We announced a process for listing assets, designed in part to accelerate the addition of more cryptocurrencies. We are also investing in new tools to help people understand and explore cryptocurrencies. We launched informational asset pages (see USDT), as well as a new section of the Coinbase website to answer common questions about crypto.
Customers can sign up for a Coinbase account here to buy, sell, convert, send, receive, or store USDT today.
