USDT marks a huge achievement

Tether (USDT), the largest stablecoin in the market, has hit an all-time high market cap of $85.9 billion.

Tether’s surge in value comes at a time when the Federal Reserve’s Vice Chair for Supervision, Michael Barr, is advocating for more robust regulations for stablecoins in the United States.

This development has put a spotlight on the importance of regulating stablecoins, which are increasingly becoming an essential part of the cryptocurrency ecosystem.

Tether’s rise in market cap has helped it maintain its top spot, with Circle’s USDC and MakerDAO’s Dai (DAI) following closely behind.

During a speech at D.C. Fintech Week, Attorney General William Barr called for oversight of stablecoins, as reported by Fortune.

Barr is reportedly concerned about the proliferation of unregulated private money backed by the US dollar.

He believes that the Federal Reserve has a strong interest in regulating stablecoin issuers, allowing it to approve and supervise them.

Barr also emphasized the importance of regulating the stablecoin industry to avoid potential risks to financial stability.

He said that the industry borrows the trust of the Federal Reserve in its issuance, and therefore should be well-regulated.

It has been just revealed by the online publication the Daily Hodl that Barr’s calls for regulation are hot on the heels of Wyoming Senator Cynthia Lummis’ calls to pass crypto regulations by early next year.

“I think the SEC is overreaching… We’re crying out for a clear regulatory framework here.”

In other recent news, according to a renowned crypto strategist and trader, Bitcoin (BTC) is currently experiencing the early stages of a parabolic surge.

Kevin Svenson, a crypto analyst with a following of 130,100 on the social media platform X, has explained that Bitcoin usually undergoes a parabolic surge during its pre-halving year.
