Massive Influx Of Fiat Floods The Crypto Space, Says Kraken CEO

Kraken CEO Jesse Powell said that things are going great in the crypto space and we should leave fears and doubt aside.

We already reported that he said Tether is not at all boosting the price of BTC.

Massive amounts of fiat are pouring into crypto

On the other hand, in a new interview with TD Ameritrade Network, he said that his crypto exchange is currently seeing massive amounts of fiat pouring into crypto and this has been happening all year.

More than that, this correlates to the increasing supply of Tether.

“I don’t have inside knowledge of what’s happening at Tether. But I can tell you that historically, when you’ve seen growth in the supply of Tether, we’ve seen growth in the supply of US dollars coming onto Kraken, and other exchanges would report the same. So I think what you’re seeing in Tether is just a very transparent reflection of what is happening at the banking system level with all the exchanges,” he said.

He continued and explained that “When new Tether is being printed, 99% of the time tons of US dollars are coming into the exchanges as well, and it’s not just being represented as Tether on the blockchain. Recently, we’ve had massive inflows of fiat currency, so I believe that the Tether prints are a result of new fiat coming in…”

According to the Daily Hodl, Powell highlighted that he believes Tether is just a small part of the total fiat supply among all of the exchanges.

BTC in the market today

Regarding Bitcoin, Alex Kruger has a positive prediction and says that BTC may have dodged a bullet when it was able to rise above $10,600.

He posted that “Tweetstorm focuses on trading Support — trading Resistance is the same in the inverse direction.”

At the moment, BTC is trading in the green on CMC and the most important digital asset is priced at $11,694.08.
