Scott Stuart, co-founder of Kava, said,
“Kava’s support of Tether’s USDt integration will help bring stability and unlock liquidity across Cosmos and EVM ecosystems.
“Native USDt issued on Kava will address the limited growth, low liquidity and increased volatility of using the Cosmos ecosystem and help ignite a robust DeFi economy, empowering appchains, EVM DApps and their users with a secure and widely adopted canonical stablecoin.”
Tether’s decision to integrate USDt natively on Cosmosusing Kava as a hub will bring accessibility and financial stability to users and developers within the Cosmos ecosystem.
Unlike external bridge solutionswhich proliferate dozens of versions of a wrapped asset, siloing liquidity, discouraging participation and harming user experience natively issued USDt on Kava simplifies the process and offers a streamlined, efficient mechanism for stablecoin liquidity provision and transfer between the Cosmos and Ethereum ecosystems.
As a result, this integration could potentially catalyze a significant expansion of the DeFi economy on Cosmos, providing a compelling solution to the liquidity problem that has been challenging since the collapse of Terra’s UST in Q1 2022.
Deploying Tethera stablecoin with a strong market reputation and an estimated 65% dominance will also offer increased security and reliability to users and developers alike.
In the announcement on June 21, 2023, Paolo Ardoino, CTO of Tether, said,
“The Kava network is a unique and widely followed blockchain with a robust track record of four years with zero security issues, which is essential to protecting USDt users.
