Tether Set off New Stablecoin That Pegs British Pounds


Tether announced the launch of GBPt, a stablecoin pegged to the British pound sterling.

The GBPt stablecoin will first be accessible on the Ethereum blockchain, as usual. The coin might be made available as soon as July of next month.

Tether CTO Paolo Ardoino claims that the introduction of the GBP-pegged stablecoin appears to be in line with the UK plans to establish itself as a major crypto hub & the widespread adoption of blockchain
