Stablecoin, Tether’s market cap has continued to plummet, losing another US$1 billion, falling from US$75.6 billion to US$74.1 billion in the last 24 hours.
The drastic fall has led many crypto analysts to believe that a collapse of Tether is now imminent.
One popular analyst, Crypto Whale, took to Twitter on Wednesday, saying tether’s crash will exceed last week’s UST crisis by a thousand times.
The dire predictions come a week after Terra Luna and Terra UST collapsed, losing billions of dollars in a matter of hours.
One week after terra’s algorithmic stablecoin collapsed, tether’s market capitalisation dropped from about US$83 billion on 11 May to around US$76 billion on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Bitcoin continues its horror run, falling five per cent from yesterday, and currently sits at US$29,000.
Ethereum, on the other hand, saw an even bigger drop, falling seven per cent in the past 24 hours, to sit at US$1,94.
