    I can't believe, but there is a new competitor to tether (these are called stablecoins):

    https://news.bitcoin.com/bittrex-adds-tether-competitor-trueusd-regulation-rumors-persist/

    “A USD-backed stablecoin you can trust”. Trust Token, which conceived TUSD, have evidently learned from Tether’s mistakes and are anxious not to be tarred with the same brush. Hence the emphasis on “full collateral, regular auditing, and legal protections”. To purchase TUSD direct from Trueusd, full KYC is required. Like tethers, TUSD may waver slightly in price, but is unlikely to deviate far from its $1 peg. "

    I can't believe it wasn't done sooner. A USD coin that is transparent with their holdings is great to park money in a down trend.

    How do they make money, if they actually back the coins with dollars?

    That's an excellent point. I guess higher fees to exchange may be one way.

    "Digifinex has decided to replace tether (USDT), perhaps the best-known "stablecoin" designed to maintain a steady exchange rate with the U.S. dollar, with a rival, TrustToken's TrueUSD."

  7. This fragmented Crypto offering binge is causing me to want to exit BitCoin and sit on the sidelines with dollars in my Coinbase account. How many different coins are there now? Is there a list somewhere...guess I can google it..

    here is one:

    When does it stop? Is all the money going to end up in this market? When I go to the major grocery store and pay in bitcoin I guess that will mark the end of the USD.
