Tether on Solana is gone – USDT Stablecoin issuer Tether announced that it has made a massive cross-blockchain swap. The company converted $1 billion of its USDT staplecoins stored on the Solana blockchain into the Ethereum blockchain-based ERC20 token format.
As an initial reaction to the news, which became known on the evening of Nov. 18, the SOL koin weakened by about 0.03%, and the total value of assets locked into Solana’s DeFi protocols dropped by 10.95% to $297.73 million, according to DeFiLlama.
Such onchain swaps are made to transfer coins from one blockchain to another. As a result, a user can deposit Tether coins into his or her account on one blockchain (e.g., Tron) and withdraw them from another blockchain (e.g., Ethereum). This is sometimes a requirement of an exchange to distribute USDT reserves more evenly. Swaps between blockchains are conducted through the Tether treasury wallet.
Tether has made such swaps between blockchains before. For example, in mid-2020, the project converted steblecoins from Tron to Ethereum twice. Both times, the amounts were also $1 billion each.
Nevertheless, the fact that it is Tether Solana, known for its close ties to the collapsed FTX and Alameda ecosystem, is what attracts community interest in this case.
Recall, recently, Binance crypto-exchange without explanation first curtailed (and later resumed) accepting USD coin (USDC) and tether (USDT) staplecoins based on Solana. Cryptocurrency company Crypto.com stopped accepting Solana-based staplecoins a week earlier, hinting at the collapse of FTX, a cryptocurrency exchange that actively supported Solana. Stablecoin deposits on Solana were also curtailed at OKX (formerly OKEx).
All these events have already had a painful effect on SOL, which was in the risk zone due to the collapse of FTX. Last week BeInCrypto’s editorial board told that the Solana ecosystem kinoin had fallen in price by about 40% in just one day, falling to a 1.5-year low. That was twice as much as most major currencies except for the FTT token itself.

Apple forced Coinbase to remove NFT transfers
Apple NFT news: Coinbase said Apple is demanding a 30% tax on the gas fee used for NFT transfers. NFT coinbase wallet users can no longer send NFTs due to Apple’s interference.
Coinbase said it could not meet the requirement even if it tried because the iPhone maker’s own in-app purchasing system does not support cryptocurrency. Note that the current stock price of Apple was not affected by the situation.
Users affected by this decision, i.e. iPhone owners, will find it “much harder to transfer this NFT to other wallets. Coinbase added that the blockage may have been an oversight, and urged Apple to contact the company with any questions.
Coinbase first announced the NFT coinbase wallet in December 2021, giving users access through the app to trading platforms such as OpenSea. The NFT token issuance and trading platform was conceived as a peer-to-peer marketplace equipped with social platform functionality. This feature should help community members find new NFT tokens and collections.
In November, Apple updated the App Store’s NFT rules, so developers can now sell tokens they have placed on the App Store. However, the new rules prohibit using cryptocurrencies, cryptocurrencies, and QR codes to unlock features in the app. Also, development companies must have a license to operate in the country where the app is sold.
Earlier, we reported that crypto investors intended to achieve the arrest of FTX through protests.
Tether says its USDT loans are “over-secured”
Tether, the issuer of the USDT stablecoin, claimed that the USDT loans it issues are characterized by overcollateralization. This was the project’s response to a recent Wall Street Journal study. In it, WSJ analysts expressed fears that Tether’s current lending practices could trigger a new crisis in the crypto industry.
According to WSJ, Tether lends its own USDT Coins to customers without exchanging them for hard currency. As a consequence, in the event of a crisis, the company may not have enough long-term liquid assets to repay the money you borrow USDT and redeem these coins. So it makes sense to apply for USDT loans to companies that offer the opportunity to pledge various stocks of large companies. For example, at the current stock price of Amazon or another corporation.
Such fears are understandable amid a steady stream of news about the collapse of the FTX crypto exchange and its implications for the crypto market. In particular, the ensuing market collapse may have also contributed to the “erosion” of Tether’s collateral.
In response to these accusations, the project published a post on Twitter with the eloquent title “The hypocrisy of the mainstream media falling asleep at the information wheel.”
The project’s management believes that the WSJ analysts are completely mistaking the USDT kinoin itself for the collateral backing it. Meanwhile, “Tether’s secured loans are characterized by over-collateralization and are even backed by additional equity if necessary.”
According to the company, 82.45% of its reserves are currently held in U.S. Treasuries and other cash equivalents. Meanwhile, the decline in the USDT token is irrelevant to the value of loan collateral. Such fluctuations in quotations are only relevant to the exchange value of the coin itself.
Recall that the project boasts the longest list of accusations against it about insufficient collateralization of its stablecoins and/or lack of transparency of information on this topic.
