Market sentiment sways as Tether sees largest redemption since FTX collapse amid PYUSD launch

cyptouser10 months agoSpot Exchanges232

Tether, the issuer of USDT, has recently experienced one of its largest redemptions since the FTX collapse in Nov. 2022, according to Paolo Ardoino, Tether’s CTO.

A total of approximately 325 million USDT was redeemed, marking a significant event in the stablecoin’s history.

This comes as the circulating supply of USDT is near record highs of around 83 billion, indicating the resilience and demand for this particular stablecoin.

An intriguing note is the USDT/USD redemption rate, which, according to Dylan LeClair, has fallen below the 10bp mark over the past 24 hours. This is the lowest rate seen since the FTX collapse and may suggest a change in market behavior or sentiment towards the stablecoin.

This data provides a snapshot of Tether’s activity and the ongoing influence of past market events, like the FTX collapse, on present occurrences. Further tracking of these redemption rates and circulating supply trends could offer valuable insight into the broader market dynamics and the stablecoin’s role within it.

PayPal launched its own stablecoin PYUSD on Aug. 7, which currently has a market cap of just $26 million, suggesting USDT redemptions are not directly linked to the increased competition.

Robinhood strikes deal with U.S. Marshal Service to buy back shares seized from Sam Bankman-Fried

Robinhood‘s proposed deal to repurchase shares seized from Sam Bankman-Fried by the U.S. Marshal Service (USMS) has been approved by a federal court in the Southern District of New York.

As a result, Robinhood will be allowed to buy back shares seized from Bankman-Fried’s Emergent Fidelity Technologies for $605.7 million, according to a statement released by the company.

After FTX and Emergent filed for bankruptcy protection last year, the U.S. government took custody of Bankman-Fried’s Robinhood shares. In February, Robinhood announced its plan to repurchase the stake.

Cash, stocks, and crypto

According to the agreement, Robinhood will buy back 55.3 million shares at $10.96 each, utilizing corporate cash from its balance sheet, which featured over $6 billion in cash and investments as of its latest quarterly report.

Bankman-Fried, who previously held a 7.6% stake in Robinhood, had expressed no intentions of gaining control over the trading platform. He had voiced enthusiasm about Robinhood’s business prospects, hinting at potential partnerships with the platform. However, the sudden bankruptcy of FTX led to the seizure and dissolution of his fortune, which was once estimated to be around $26 billion.

The FTX founder sought to retain ownership of Robinhood shares worth $450 million. He vehemently disputed the bankrupt exchange’s “legal claims” over the assets, insisting that he and Gary Wang were the primary holders of the shares, not Alameda Research or any other entities implicated in the FTX bankruptcy.

Robinhood has demonstrated robust strength within the crypto market, underlined by its substantial holdings in Bitcoin (
