UST Stablecoin Crash: Tether’s recent depeg 

The world of stablecoins took a great hit this past few weeks as one of the largest stablecoins UST went to dust. This seems to have also affected USDT as the coin lost its peg and dropped as low as $0.95.

Tether is supposed to be backed by cash, short-term debt obligations corresponding to an equivalent amount of dollars deposited by its users. Those assets are held in a reserve managed by a company of the same name. The stablecoin has since reclaimed its peg.
