Tether Discredits Ripple CEO’s U.S. Scrutiny Remarks

In response to recent comments made by Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse, Tether CEO Paolo Ardoino has defended his company against allegations that the United States government is targeting them. Ardoino took to social media to address Garlinghouse’s claims and accused him of spreading fear about Tether’s stablecoin, USDT. Ardoino pointed out the hypocrisy in Garlinghouse’s comments, as Ripple is currently facing an investigation by the SEC and is also planning to launch its own stablecoin. Tether, Is the largest stablecoin issuer in the world and has a strong track record of compliance and stability.

Ardoino highlighted several reasons why USDT is compliant and widely used. Tether has worked with numerous law enforcement agencies around the world and has blocked over $1.3 billion worth of assets linked to scams, hacks, and money laundering. In collaboration with US law enforcement, Tether has blocked over $639 million. Ardoino also stated that Tether has voluntarily followed 198 requests from law enforcement to block wallets, including 90 from US law enforcement in the past year and 339 in the past three years, with 158 of those requests from US law enforcement.

Ardoino concluded his response by criticizing other stablecoin issuers, claiming that they only comply with judicial orders, whereas Tether works directly with law enforcement agencies. He argued that this approach is more effective in preventing hackers, scammers, and criminals from moving funds around.

Garlinghouse’s comments about the US government going after Tether were seen by many in the crypto community as a sign of potential regulatory action. Some believe that it may be a competitive tactic as Ripple prepares to enter the stablecoin market. Despite the speculation, Tether has not provided any further comment on the matter.
