The launch of USDT and XAUT on TON will provide the network and Telegram’s 900 million user base with a borderless experience for peer-to-peer (P2P) payments and seamless value transfers between the ecosystem and other blockchains.

Commenting on the latest development, Tether CEO Paolo Ardoino said: “We’re excited to bring USD₮ and XAU₮ to The Open Network because we support its vision of an open and decentralized internet and a borderless financial system.”

Additionally, the integration will boost TON’s activity and liquidity, easing developers’ access to capital across various use cases. Tether said the move also indicates its support for TON and its ongoing development.

This development comes shortly after USDT launched on the carbon-negative Ethereum Virtual Machine-compatible Celo network. The arrangement could see the stablecoin become a gas currency on the network.

Meanwhile, Tether has expanded its business beyond stablecoins.
