 Tether’s investment strategy is fuelled by its substantial profit. In the first quarter alone, Tether reported a profit of $4.5 billion. As per a source, the company plans to continue keeping 100% of its revenue, plus a 6% cushion, ensuring smooth USDT redemptions. The remaining profits will be directed towards new investments.
