Tether, the issuer of USDT, the world’s largest stablecoin based on market cap, added just shy of 8,889 bitcoin (BTC) in the first quarter, according to on-chain trackers such as Arkham Intelligence.

Though Tether made no official announcement of the action, a wallet believed to belong to the company shows as having 8,888.8888 bitcoin moved to it on March 31. Tether, of course, has made no secret of its intention to use a portion of its profits to acquire bitcoin.
