Paolo Ardoino, CTO of Tether, stated that the company is thrilled with the tremendous success it achieved in Q1 2023. The company has an extremely positive outlook for Q2 and remains committed to transparency, which is why it introduced new categories in the reserves’ breakdown in its quarterly report to provide even greater transparency to its users.
