our journey: from vision
to reality

At Tether, our story is one of innovation, resilience, and relentless pursuit of breaking barriers. Founded in 2014 by a team passionate about the transformative power of technology, Tether began as a simple yet revolutionary idea: to enable seamless arbitrage between crypto exchanges with USD₮, overcoming the banking system's inefficiencies. Our humble beginnings were rooted in the desire to leverage blockchain technology for a common settlement network, transcending traditional financial boundaries.

over the years

Tether has evolved beyond its original scope, responding to the world's changing needs with agility and vision. Our flagship product, USD₮, initially designed to streamline crypto trading, became a lifeline for millions during the pandemic. As economies struggled and traditional financial systems faltered, individuals in emerging and developing markets turned to USD₮. It became their tool for financial freedom, enabling access to a stable financial system, remittances, cross-border trade, and preservation of wealth against inflating national currencies.

our journey has also led us to explore and innovate in other critical areas such as Bitcoin mining, P2P communications, education, AI and human evolution.

With investments in sustainable energy, we're redefining Bitcoin mining practices, prioritising eco-friendliness and efficiency.

Through our support for Holepunch and Keet, we're championing decentralised communication, ensuring privacy, freedom, and independence from centralised tech giants.

Our efforts in AI infrastructure are aimed at democratising access to cutting-edge technologies, enabling groundbreaking applications and enhancing global problem-solving capabilities.

Venturing into the realm of human evolution, our investments in neurotechnology, underscore our commitment to merging minds and machines to unlock new dimensions of human potential, enhancing communication, creativity, and interaction with the digital world.

We're committed to democratising education, preparing individuals globally for the digital and gig economies.

As we reflect on our path, from pioneering the world’s most trusted stablecoin to championing financial and communicative autonomy, our story is far from complete. Inspired by the principle of individual sovereignty and fuelled by a deep belief in technology's potential, Tether is dedicated to fostering innovation that empowers people everywhere. We are not just building financial tools; we are shaping a future where everyone, regardless of geography or economic status, has the opportunity to thrive.

Join us as we continue to dare, innovate, and dream.
