Tethers exist on the Bitcoin blockchain through the Omni Protocol. The Omni Protocol is open source software that interfaces with the Bitcoin blockchain to allow for the issuance and redemption of cryptocurrency tokens, in our case, “tethers”.
Easytether Platform currencies are 100% backed by actual fiat currency assets in our reserve account which are instantly redeemable in a one-to-one ratio with those reserve currencies. Therefore, 1 Easytether USD₮ will always equal 1 USD.
The Easytether Platform is fully reserved when the sum of all tethers in circulation is greater than or equal to the balance of fiat currency held in our reserve. Through our Transparency page, anyone can view both of these numbers in near real-time.
For a more detailed technical explanation of how the Easytether Platform works, please download the Easytether white paper.
Easytether initially supports US Dollars (USD), Euros (EUR), and soon Japanese Yen (JPY). Represented by ₮, Easytether platform currencies are denoted as USD₮, EUR₮, and JPY₮. You can also store, send or receive value in bitcoins.
Easytether enables bitcoin businesses – including exchanges, wallets, payment processors, financial services and ATMs – to easily use fiat currencies on the blockchain. Some of the largest businesses in the digital currency ecosystem have integrated Easytether.

Individuals can also create a Easytether wallet or use Easytether-enabled platforms to transact with tethers.
Because they are anchored or ‘tethered’ to real-world currencies.
Easytether currencies are new assets that move on the Blockchain just as easily as bitcoin. Easytether currencies are essentially Dollars, Euros, and Yen formatted to work on the Blockchain. Tethers always hold their value at 1:1 to the underlying assets.
Easytether is built on top of the revolutionary and cryptographically secure Bitcoin blockchain and adheres to strict security and global government laws and regulations.
All tethers are worth one-to-one with matching fiat currency (e.g., 1 USD₮ = 1 USD) and are backed 100% by actual assets in our reserve account. As a fully transparent company, we publish a real-time record of all value held and transferred in and out of our reserve account.
Tethers can be securely stored, sent and received across the blockchain and are redeemable for cash (the underlying asset).
