Amid ongoing lawsuits surrounding controversial stablecoin Tether, the company's CTO plans to detail the asset's background at an upcoming conference.
Bitfinex and Tether CTO Paolo Ardoino is slated to recount "The story of Tether's inception and success" in a keynote speech at the CryptoCompare Digital Asset Summit in London on March 10, a statement from CryptoCompare said on Feb. 28.The firm's CTO appears confident.
Although Tether still sits entangled in a complicated legal battle, the firm's CTO thinks the stablecoin is at its best.
"I am excited to share an overview of our story so far and provide a glimpse into our exciting plans for the future."
Over the past several years, Tether and associated exchange Bitfinex have felt the brunt of countless claims of foul play.
Current lawsuits encompass concerns that have loomed for quite some time.
Tether currently finds itself in the midst of pressing legal matters, standing up against a class-action lawsuit that has seen substantial media coverage over the past several months.
The lawsuit wagers that Tether manipulated the crypto market in 2017, playing a part in the massive bull run the industry saw that year.
Most recently, iFinex, the company behind Tether, called the current market manipulation allegations "Reckless and false," according to a statement Cointelegraph received.
Cointelegraph reached out to Tether and Bitfinex for additional details, but received no response as of press time.
