In fact, that’s what a lot of traders do. However, the value of Tether becomes a concern when you consider the fact that Tether is very vulnerable to investigations, has ties to Bitfinex that may be a little too close to comfort, and may not survive an effective bank run in which several large bagholders attempt to exchange their USDT for fiat all at once.
