Crypto Volatility Knocks More Stablecoins Off Their Peg
Tether encounters difficulties
Major cryptocurrency volatility has hit stablecoins, typically considered the market's safer-havens, with investors pulling money out of the sector and several losing the peg to their underlying assets.
The market capitalization of stablecoins had plummeted to $156.8 billion on Thursday, from around $181 billion at the start of May, CoinGecko data showed.
Tether , the world's largest stable-coin, briefly dropped to $0.993 on Wednesday, though it quickly regained parity with the dollar.
