Tether report on the news

In a statement, Tether said it has “always been profitable,” though it is reporting the net profit figure for the first time.

Tether’s latest attestation shows the firm ended 2022 with $67 billion in consolidated total assets and $66 billion in consolidated total liabilities.

As of Dec. 31, Tether held $55 billion in cash and cash equivalents, compared with the $56 billion in cash and cash equivalents it held at the end of the third quarter.

Tether’s reserves held in corporate bonds, funds and precious metals increased to over $3.4 billion at the end of December, from about $3.2 billion at the end of September.

Reserves held in secured loans decreased by $300 million from $6.14 billion at the end of September to $5.85 billion at the end of 2022.

Reserves in the “other investments” category, which includes unspecified digital tokens, rose slightly from $2.62 billion last quarter to about $2.69 billion at the end of last year.

Tether had a tumultuous 2022 amid the collapses of multiple cryptocurrencies and once high-flying crypto firms. Paolo Ardoino, Tether’s chief technology officer, said in a statement that the firm processed over $21 billion in redemptions and issued over $10 billion of the stablecoin during the year.
