Is Tether a scam and can it be trusted? This is a legitimate question. With 2 hacks in 2017 and their own currency that somehow never changes in value, there are more than a few skeptics and for good reason. A lot positive and negative press is constantly streaming through the webs about Tether and how it is the downfall or savior of crypto. I’d say it’s a little more negative than positive, but still useful. As the old cliche goes, don’t throw the baby out with the bath water.

That is to say, without creating a taxable event by selling your crypto for ‘real’ paper money.
Why I believe Tether is a scam.
How do you have millions of USD$ in cash reserves, but no person or external organization can verify this? How did you get hacked twice in the same year, to the same wallet? Sounds more than a little bit sketch, in my opinion. So maybe someone has a bead on the poor security posture of the Bitfinex employees, not somewhere I want to keep my money and certainly not a crypto I want to own. Just like Ripple, it goes completely against the security and nature of crypto. Centralized servers and control are a HUGE security vulnerability. The fact that someone can make off with $31 Million USD of a “crypto” from an exchange
