Bitcoin development firm Blockstream has launched a new version of the stablecoin Tether (USDT) on its nascent “Liquid Network,” a “sidechain” protocol designed to link together exchanges. 

“Liquid” tethers will be better and faster and more secure, according to Blockstream CSO Samson Mow, who over the weekend described critical reports on Tether as “clickbait hit pieces masquerading as impartial investigative reporting.”

Starting today, Liquid USDT will be available for deposit and withdrawal on Bitfinex, the sister exchange of USDT-issuer Tether and the subject of a months-long government investigation that, coincidentally, had another day in court today.

Bitcoin SV (BSV) news and prices

And BSV is already getting bigger capacity.  On July 24, 2019, BSV’s network upgraded to a much bigger default block cap of 2 gigabytes (that’s 2000 megabytes).  That’s right, BSV has a default block cap 2000 times bigger than BTC. After the July 2019 upgrade, BSV comfortably handles 1000+ transactions per second, and will continue increasing capacity.  In theory, 2GB blocks could enable 9000-14,000 transactions per second (though that depends on technology improvements and the types of transactions, because BSV’s greater capacity supports many forms of data transactions, not just payments).

And in February 2020, BSV plans to entirely remove the block cap, and allow its capacity to grow into whatever the market needs.  In fact, one of the leading BSV development teams (nChain) is working toward terabyte size blocks (1 million megabytes!) to process billions of transactions per block and 4 million transactions per second.  That future means BSV can be the world’s public data ledger, recording payments and all kinds of other enterprise data transactions.
