"Tether Gold stands out as a gold-backed stablecoin"
ICRYPEX CEO Gökalp İçer said, who made statements about the listing of Tether Gold, said, "Stablecoins are of great importance in the crypto markets, especially for investors who want to reduce risk. Although most of the stablecoins are backed with USD, stablecoins that perform price movements backed by other fiat currencies and commodities are also preferred by ICRYPEX users. Tether Gold is a stablecoin that represents ownership of physical gold, so it makes price movements that are connected to gold prices. ICRYPEX users will now be able to buy and sell Tether Gold and have exposure to the change in gold prices with the simplicity of buying and selling crypto."
Tether CTO Paolo Ardoino added his views on Tether Gold's listing in ICRYPEX, "We are extremely excited that ICRYPEX has decided to make Tether Gold available on their platform. By gaining access to a trusted stablecoin that represents ownership of physical gold, ICRYPEX users are poised to thrive as they are now able to benefit from owning a scarce and consistently valued commodity as well as hedge against highly volatile fiat inflation rates."
This press release is not an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy XAU₮. TG Commodities Limited will only sell or redeem XAU₮ pursuant to its terms of service available (as of the date of this press release) at gold.tether.to/legal.
