Tether (USDT) is the world's third most popular and capitalised cryptocurrency after Bitcoin and Ethereum. Its difference from its predecessors lies in the fact that it is a stablecoin: its rate is stable and in this case depends on the US dollar, it is reflected in the name of the token. Another feature of Tether is that it does not have its own blockchain: it works on the bitcoin or Ether protocol, which adds to all the advantages of using Tether the pros of these cryptocurrencies. Tether has taken the best from digital and national currencies and at the same time allows its owners to earn by borrowing for short periods.

South Korea is a very developed country, and it is not surprising that it has a positive attitude towards cryptocurrency. South Korea even has a national digital currency – the digital won (CBDC). It was tested until January 2022 – during the coronavirus citizens were getting benefits in it.
