How to buy Tether (USDT) in the Middle East

At BitOasis, we are proud to be the largest and most secure digital asset platform in the MENA region. With us, it has never been easier and more secure to enter the world of blockchain. Operating in the region since 2015 and headquartered in the UAE, our platform allows MENA residents and citizens to buy, sell and trade Tether (USDT), along with 15 other digital assets safely and securely.

Digital currencies have come a long way since the inception of Bitcoin back in 2009. In the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has been the leader in taking the initiative and encouraging the development and growth of new technologies in the financial technology (Fintech) and blockchain sectors.

What is Tether (USDT)?

Tether (USDT) is a blockchain-based digital asset, or cryptocurrency, whose circulated tokens are backed by traditional, or Fiat currencies. Tether is a stablecoin that aims to stabilize the token’s valuation, which would allow it to be used as a mode of value storage and a medium of exchange. Pegged against the United States Dollar (USD), Tether maintains a ratio of 1:1 with it.
