Tezos News Today – The year 2017 was tagged as an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) year. This is because there was a huge influx of ICOs in the digital currency space. Hundreds of crypto projects came into the crypto space that year.

Users Can Earn an Annual Interest on USDTZ

According to the team, fixated assets will not need to be backed by either XTZ or fiat currency for a specific period.
