Tether CFO Giancarlo Devasini, was a doctor who reduced women's breasts, said "All my work seemed like a scam, the exploitation of a whim", sounds like he's continuing in that trend
"The funny thing about all of the above is that it’s all really obvious. Tether is apparently run by serial scammers. Its books aren’t open. It’s CEO and CFO refuse public interviews. The company’s unofficial spokesman is its CTO, who is just a developer."
"There is, for example, the strange coincidence of Tether being a crypto of choice for a U.S. government-backed rebels in Myanmar."
"Tether demand skyrocketed in Ukraine right after the Russian military operation began in February of this year. Ukrainian charities made appeals for Tether-based donations."
"Tether… broke just about every rule in banking."
"From all this, an alternative possibility emerges: Tether, despite being a scam, persists because for at least some portion of the U.S. government, the scam’s survival is useful, be it forintelligenceor subterranean geopolitics."
"TheCIAwas in the middle of it." (the BCCI collapse in 1991)
"After all, we learned that FTX’s disgraced founder Sam Bankman Fried played a non-negligible role in the Tether ecosystem. According to a report released barely a year ago, Sam Bankman Fried’s trading fund Alameda Research (which he allegedly stole from FTX reserves to fund) has an enormously significant business relationship with Tether"
"Tether sent almost $36.7 billion in USDT to Alameda Research."
"Thus when it comes to Tether, “Too big to fail” may very well have become “Too big to even lift up the veil.”"
TYB what a night!
