Most of the exchanges work with Tether to convert cryptos into USD.
It seems when you sell cryptos on an exchange yoy get Tethers and not USD.
It is when cashing out to you bank account that it is converted to USD.
Now there are some rumors that this TETHER is a scam. They claim that every TETHER is backed by a USD, but it nowhere to verify.
Have a look at this: https://medium.com/@bitfinexed

If this is true, I believe a few exchanges are going down and will stop existing.
Be warned: If you have some cryptos in an exchange account, get them out ASAP and store them in a wallet.

Oh no. Not another big scam.
Cardano is the most promising 3 gen. crypto right now.

It's sadly a dangerous scam since many many exchanges now uses USDT when you sell for USD. Bitstamp only uses REAL USD and Euro...no USDT there!
Poloniex uses USDT!!!

Yes! It could be very dangerous now keeping your assets in a wallet on the exchanges. So if you have your assets kept in such wallet, get them out ASAP and store them somewhere else where it is safe.

The exchanges should right now go back to USD. If they want to keep USDT it's fine, but pr. default USD should be the choice when selling for USD.

I don't know if it is that easy for them to do so. If they don't and USDT falls down to zero they will go bankrupted and lots of people will be bankrupted too. If that's the case crypto currencies will lose a lot of trust and all will fall back to a very low value. It would take a long time to come back. This is something I (we) have never foreseen. Last week I had in mind the crash was going to end soon, but right now I don't now...

The primary reason is still FEAR that causes the crash. Fear of regulation and ban of crypto.

If USDT is a scam then it would cause trouble for all crypto's. USDT is number 15 in the market cap so a crash would really harm the market.

One of the problems with Tether is that it has propped up the price of Bitcoin, and by extension, the cryptocurrency market. Every time Bitcoin has fallen, they have released new Tethers and bought Bitcoin. Now that there is intense scrutiny on Bitfinex, they haven't released any new Tethers in the last 6 days, and there is no longer that cushion to stop Bitcoin falling.

Very interesting thread on Reddit, dated 2 months ago:

What would be truly diabolical is if Btifinix released new Tethers (fake fiat), bought Bitcoin with those Tethers and caused the price of Bitcoin to go up, and then sold the Bitcoin for USD (real fiat) when the price was sufficiently high.

I only have coins in C-Cex - is it safe? The coins are ETH. What is a simple and safe desktop wallet I can download for ETH?
