Deltec evaluates Tether and it doesn't find it wanting.

The Block was the first to break the news that stablecoin Tether (USDT) was holding reserves at a new location. In detail, the report says that Tether, alongside cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex, had moved their banking services to Deltec. Additionally, the report noted that Tether previously had a relationship with Puerto Rico’s Noble Bank. In an apparent admission, Tether released a Twitter post on Thursday detailing its dealings with Deltec.

The Twitter Post

In the tweet, Tether noted that they are excited to announce that they have successfully opened accounts with Deltec Bank & Trust Limited. Willing to tell it all, Tether shared a link and an image in the post, confirming that the company has $1,831,322,828 USD. However, there is a second side to the story. Suspiciously, there was no account holder’s name and signature attached to the bank details that Tether shared. Predictably, this raised some suspicions.

Post Arouses More Suspicions

In addition, the company noted that Deltec accepted them after a thorough due diligence review of Tether. Tether pointed out that the comprehensive evaluation was on its background and compliance protocol. According to the company, the background check also probed people running the core affairs of the company plus its cryptocurrency investors. More importantly, the evaluation critically examined Tether’s ability to maintain USD-peg at all times. Before officially opening the account, the Bank took several months to complete the evaluation, the statement noted.

Deltec and Tether Relationship

It is worthy of note that as of October 18th, Deltec had yet to confirm that they had a working relationship with Tether. In writing, CoinDesk requested the financial institution to confirm its relationship with Tether. However, Deltec turned down the request, citing their governance legislation and privacy policy. The bank noted that it has to comply with all applicable banking regulations and that it also adheres to policies of safety and risk management of Tether. As a result, the bank neither confirmed nor debunked an existing relationship with Tether at the time of inquiry.

Social Media Users Are Going Haywire

Indeed, social media users are asking many questions regarding the validity of the Tether document. Of course, the question that dominated their discussions has been why Tether produced the document just recently. Given that there hasn’t been any audit to prove the veracity of the document, investors remain doubtful. As more details emerge, time will tell whether Tether is telling the truth or not. Meanwhile, Deltec plans to continue reviewing their relationship with Tether.
