Strategic Accumulation

Tether began buying BTC in September 2022, and continues to buy BTC every quarter. The company earns significant income from its bond portfolio. US Treasuries form the majority of Tether's holdings. These are cash-like instruments that are highly liquid and can be converted to dollars easily, allowing money to pass between the blockchain ecosystem and TradFi relatively frictionlessly.

With almost 95 billion USDT in circulation, and US interest rates above 5%, Tether will be earning almost $5 billion per year.

Tether has also been investing heavily in Bitcoin mining infrastructure in recent months, embedding itself as a key player in the wider crypto ecosystem.
