Loss of Trust in Tether Could Shock BTC Liquidity
JPMorgan wrote in their report that the risk of a “sudden loss of confidence” in USDT threatens Bitcoin.
Analysts estimate that 50-60% of trading since 2019 has been paired with USDT. Thus, USDT carries a tail risk for the crypto market. Analysts note that Tether insists on backing USDT with traditional currencies and its equivalents, “but is known for not providing an independent audit and has stated in court documents that it should not support full collateral.”
“So, in the event of any issues that could affect the willingness or ability of investors to use USDT, the most likely scenario would be a massive liquidity shock for the broader crypto market.”, – the report says.
Overall, JPMorgan analysts call Bitcoin a “minor” phenomenon in the economy, but recognize its role as an “alternative” currency.
