Crypto market set for upcoming volatility

DoJ Toss USDT Investigation
The US Department of Justice (DoJ), after months of silence pushes for the investigation plans to be made on Tether USDT. This is in keeping with allegations that Tether bank fraud victims are Tether executives.
According to Bloomberg’s report, US Attorney Damian Williams in the Southern District of New York will lead the probe for DoJ.
USDT’s issuing company disclosed that they had long maintained an undivided relationship with the DoJ. It stated, however that it has not spoken to the DoJ about its senior executives since this year. The agency reported that it had launched an active investigation into Tether.
Tether further lauded Bloomberg’s report on it, noting that Tether repeatedly showed its need to be heard in the market without any understanding.
