On Tuesday, January 23, Tether Ltd has suspended the issuance of tokens USDT. That day the post delivered the summons from the Commission on urgent exchange trade of the USA (CFTC) company representatives believe in TrustNodes.
It should be noted that for eight months preceding this date, Tether released to the market more than 2 billion USTD — almost every week the issue was increased by 100 million units, but for a few days in January it was released 600 million.
The reason why the company has ceased to issue new tokens, remains unknown — it could be due to adverse market conditions or with the CFTC investigation.
