Bill Shihara is a co-Founder and CEO of Bittrex, who previously was a Security Engineering Manager at Amazon and Manager of Security Threat Analysis and Security Engineering at BlackBerry.
In a recent interview with Unikrn radio, Bill Shihara revealed that the popular cryptocurrency exchange Bittrex will soon launch US Dollar trading on the platform. Those news are really big considering the recent problems connected with Tether (USDT).
We will be doing US dollar trading. This won't be open to everybody, but we will have US dollar trading available for the majority of our customers. People who are interested, there is a separate, enchanced due diligence process around getting your account blessed for US dollars.
As for the community reaction to the abovementioned news, many users suggest that the ticker USDT will be removed and changed for USD, but there is no confirmed information regarding this issue yet.
