Tether on Kusama

Kusama has been having great success in recent weeks. Its native token, KSM, has grown its marketcap by 36.4% in the last 30 days, and its ecosystem has also received a lot of initiatives.

However, this growth won’t be compared to what is coming next for Kusama. The entry of Tether to the “Polkadot’s cousin” will boost the liquidity and variety of DeFi and trading services to its ecosystem. Therefore, in this article, you will discover how important is this milestone for Kusama.

The Secret Behind Statemine’s Parachain to make Tether be on Kusama

On April 13th, Tether Operation Limited announced that the stablecoin will be launched on Kusama. To do it, they will use the Statemine parachain. Parachains are parallel blockchains that run independently on Polkadot’s network. In this case, Statemine is one of them.

In addition, the reason why Tether chose Statemine is that it is a parachain designed to keep updated balances of thousands of tokens at the same time. Also, this parachain lets can deploy assets, from NFTs to stablecoins, in Kusama. Therefore, users will have lower fees with a more secure and scalable environment.

When Tether enters a new blockchain-like Kusama, DeFi dApps will give their users optimized services. This is caused by Tether’s liquidity, which is the biggest in the crypto ecosystem. Also, developers will be able to build trustless cross-chain dApps and robust communities.
