Tether won’t confirm or deny if it’s dropping USDT on Tron


Tether did not make a specific comment on whether it plans to drop support for Tron after rival Circle dumped the network over safety concerns.

Stablecoin issuer Tether didn’t provide a definitive answer on whether or not it would cease support for the Tron network after its rival Circle ceased minting its stablecoin on the blockchain on Tuesday.
