Tether has completely eliminated its reserve exposure to commercial paper.

As part of its initial attempts to strengthen its treasury reserves, Tether, the business responsible for issuing the largest stablecoin by market capitalization, has stated that it has deleted commercial paper from its holdings. With "investor security at the center of the administration of Tethers' reserves," the company said in an announcement that this move was "part of Tether's ongoing efforts to promote transparency." It was reported earlier this year that Tether's CTO, Paolo Ardoino, has stated the company's goal of reducing its reliance on commercial paper by the end of 2022.

Tether claims it was able to reach this target "without any losses" by selling off commercial paper holdings totaling over $30 billion (about Rs. 2,47,200 crore). In their own words, this is "evidence of how Tethers' reserves are cautiously and competently maintained," the claim made by the stablecoin supplier.

The majority of the company's commercial assets have been converted into US Treasury Bill investments, with the statement that the company has "raised its direct exposure to the US Treasuries by more than $10 billion (approximately Rs. 82,400 crore) in the recent quarter."

After years of secrecy and questions about the security of its reserves, Tether has been attempting to increase its openness with the public.

The Chinese real estate market was on the verge of collapse in October 2021, and a Bloomberg piece published that month speculated that Tether may have had large exposure to Chinese commercial debt at that time.

"Tether's elimination of commercial papers shows that it has confidence in the security of its reserves. Not just Tether, but the whole stablecoin sector, can benefit from this move toward increased openness and confidence "the firm declared.

In May 2021, as part of a settlement with the New York Attorney General's office, Tether started disclosing quarterly attestations of its stablecoin reserves.
