“Our net profits for the quarter were $1.48B, a testament to the strength and stability of our platform. We continue to monitor the risk-adjusted return on all assets within our portfolio on an ongoing basis and expect to make further changes as the overall economic environment changes and the market cycle progresses as a part of our normal, ongoing risk management processes.”
Besides the increased net profit, the first quarter also saw a 20% increase in Tether’s tokens in circulation. This pointed to a growing trust among Tether customers making Tether very optimistic for the future.
According to the report, Tether reported $81.8 billion in consolidated total assets. Most of the company’s reserves are invested in US Treasury Bills.

According to the report, Tether’s reserves are held in cash, cash equivalents, and other short-term deposits, making the reserves extremely liquid.
The report also highlighted a 25% reduction in secured loans which dropped from 8.7% to 6.5% of the total reserves. Bitcoin and Gold represent 2% and 4% of the total reserves respectively.
In addition, all new issuance of tokens has been invested in US Treasury bills or placed in overnight Repo.
