    To quite some extent the reason Tether is king [of stablecoins] is because it provides essentially free access to shadowbanking. I'm not sure it's just a story about size or network effect.

    Libra: A fiat-pegged, fiat-backed stablecoin issued on a federated ledger, controlled by a handful of parties. Much drama. May never launch.

    USDT on Liquid: A fiat-pegged, fiat-backed stablecoin issued on a federated ledger, controlled by a handful of parties. Live for 4 months.

    USDT on Liquid even has the following:
    - No blacklist capabilities from the issuer
    - Privacy features (amounts & asset type hidden in txs)
    - Atomic swaps to swap in/out of BTC w/o KYC over Tor
    - Decent mobile wallet (Blockstream Green) to hold USDT
    - Full nodes
