Cryptocurrency News Today – Headlines for October 9

  • Tether has blacklisted over 100 addresses on the Ethereum
  • 84 blacklisting actions by Tether happened in 2020
  • Binance recorded $160 billion in derivatives volume last month

Cryptocurrency News Today – according to data from analysts, the total number of blacklisted Tether addresses on Ethereum has reached 100. About 84 of the blacklist actions taken by Tether happened in 2020, and the bulk of them began happening after July. For this content, the term “blacklisting” refers to user addresses that cannot send, receive, or redeem Tether (USDT). This action renders any USDT held in the affected addresses unusable.

As of July 9, Tether had already blacklisted about 39 Ether addresses holding USDT. There are many reasons why a user’s address can be blacklisted. The problem can happen due to a request by law enforcement or freezing actions taken by Tether as a part of a fund recovery process. At press time, there is no response to this revelation by users.
