The company went on to publish a confirmation from Deltec that it is indeed holding $1.83 billion in reserves at the bank which is more than enough reserve for the 1.78 billion in outstanding USDT. The company has recently come under fire for with claims of it only holding a fractional reserve.

The statement which came from the Deltec Bank and Trust Limited reiterated that the confirmation of the company’s reserves was done with neither Deltec Bank & Trust Limited, its officers, shareholders, directors nor employees having any legal responsibility towards the company, affirming that the information was purely based on what was in the possession of the bank.

The statement went on to say that as at the close of business on the 31st of October, the value of the portfolio the company held with the bank was US$1,831,322,828.

Report From Legal Firm To Clear Tether

Before this public confirmation was made, the first mentioning of the possible relationship between Tether and Deltec Bank & Trust Limited was made by The Block. Before moving to this bank Tether was banking with Noble Bank which is based in Puerto Rico. The bank has since been put up for sale on account of the departure of major players in the Crypto sector.

Mid this year in an attempt to answer the allegations that it did not hold enough in its reserves to back the token, Tether published a report from US legal firm Freeh, Sporkin & Sullivan LLP.
