It noted that Ethereum is coming close towards the blockchain history’s one of the most significant instances, while transitioning from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake. 

In the blogpost, Tether explained their belief towards ensuring any disruption to the community should be avoided. It becomes more important for stablecoin issuer given their tokens used in different decentralized finance (defi) projects and platforms. The transition of Ethereum from PoW to PoS should not become a threat that could cause confusion and anyhow harm the ecosystem.

Tether is the biggest stablecoin in the crypto market with almost ten times the volume in market trading in comparison to their closest contender. Additionally, it is also the Ethereum blockchain network’s most used stablecoin having three times the number of people holding USDT than any other stablecoin. Citing these facts, Tether supported their reason to consider supporting Ethereum merge as their responsibility towards the community and the developers.
