Several major South Korean cryptocurrency exchanges have started listing the US dollar-pegged stablecoin USDT as trading volumes increase. Bithumb, the second-largest exchange in the country, added support for USDT on December 7, following Coinone's listing on November 30. Both exchanges support USDT on the Tron blockchain protocol. South Korean exchanges have faced scrutiny in recent years and have been pressured to delist certain coins. Despite concerns about Tether's USD reserves, the South Korean exchanges seem unfazed and believe investors can check the audit reports and reserve details. USDT is popular in South Korea and Asia, where it is used for trading Bitcoin on peer-to-peer markets. Bithumb hopes that the USDT listing will help improve its financial results. As part of the listing event, Bithumb is offering customers fractional Bitcoin rewards for maker orders. This development comes after a customs service raid on an international gambling ring that used USDT. Officials suspect that the ring paid online casino users in USDT, which was then exchanged for fiat on an illegal crypto exchange in the Philippines.
