BDO Italia is an independent member firm of BDO International Limited and an audit and assurance firm based in Italy. Nowadays, Tether’s management team includes at least two Italian executives. The majority of the team is based in Europe and the Bahamas, where the majority of the reserves are kept.
Therefore, the decision to work with the BDO organization, according to the company, represents Tether’s promise to provide significant transparency. Also, it will provide daily updates about issued tokens and reserves. Furthermore, it will be supplemented by monthly assurance opinions.
Moreover, Chief Technical Officer, Paolo Ardoino, stated in the statement that “the utility of Tether has grown beyond being just a tool for quickly switching positions in trading”. He also stated, “it is vital to our ability to grow along with the peer-to-peer and payments markets.”
More About Tether’s Reserves Report
The CCR and BDO confirmed a more than 58% decrease in Tether’s commercial paper holdings from $20B to $8.5B as of June 30th. It is consistent with Tether’s commitment to the community. As previously stated, commercial paper exposure will be reduced to $200 million by the end of August 2022. Furthermore, it will go to zero by the end of the year. During the same time period, Tether increased its cash and bank deposit holdings by 32%.

Despite market capitulation in Q2-2022, which resulted in cascading failures across the industry. Tether demonstrated its resiliency and continued commitment to transparency and dependability.
Success and adoption for us means seeing #tether being used by normal simple people (small show owners, …), from populated cities to the most remote areas of the globe, focusing on emerging markets and developing countries.
