How to buy Tether in Ireland
Is USDT a good investment in Ireland?
Tether is the first stablecoin in the crypto world, launched in July 2014. Like other stablecoins, Tether's price is tied to the price of USD. It means every Tether is always $1. It is also called USDT, which means USD Tether. The stable price of Tether makes it a great alternative to USD in the online world. People can easily use their Tether to purchase other coins. Although the Tether price is always stable, it fell to $096 once in May 2022. However, that didn’t impact its market because very soon it rebounded to $1.
Tether is not an investment like other coins. Since its price is stable, nothing can happen in the future. But people buy Tethers for other reasons. One of them is trading it with other coins whenever they want. The other reason is to avoid the volatility of the crypto market. Traders and investors usually trade their coins with Tether when the crypto market seems unstable or collapsing. Therefore, they can keep their digital assets safe from this risky world. Then, when the market stabilizes, they again trade their tether with other coins that seem to have a better future. Thus, Tether is not considered an investment but can help traders in difficult times.
What is Tether ?
Tether was launched on a platform called Omni via a blockchain company called Tether Holdings Limited. The Omni platform is a sub-layer of the Bitcoin blockchain. Tether was then released as an ERC-20 coin on the Ethereum blockchain.

According to the above-mentioned document, if an Irish individual was carrying on a ‘trade’ of dealing in cryptocurrency, any profit on the selling of
crypto assets would be subject to income tax, the income tax rates can be up to 55% (including universal social charge and social insurance). According to the above-mentioned Irish Tax
