Tether denied reports claiming that Tether’s commercial paper portfolio is 85% supported by Chinese or Asian commercial papers and is now traded at a 30% discount.

The stablecoin firm described such allegations as completely false, emphasizing that over 47% of total USDT reserves are the United States Treasuries.

In the recent assurance opinion reported in May, Tether reported that commercial paper accounts for less than 25% of the overall USDT’s backing, valued at around $21 billion as of March 31.

Tether has continued to cut its current portfolio of commercial paper, reducing its volumes to $11 billion. The company expects to reduce it to $8.4B by the end of June 2022.

Tether argued that reports indicating that the company has a lending exposure to crypto venture capital firm Three Arrows Capital are false.
