Tether has announced the launch of its chinese yuan backed stablecoin – the CNHT. In addition, it also now supports offshore Chinese yuan – CNH.
In August, Zhao Dong, an investor in Bitfinex, revealed in an interview with a Chinese media outfit that Tether would soon issue a stablecoin pegged to the Chinese Yuan. Dong also said that his digital asset management organization Renrenbit will invest in the stablecoin.
He was quoted saying “Personally, I think the offshore yuan stablecoin could boost the circulation of offshore renminbi and internationalize it. Regulators may be happy to see it proceed and succeed.”
According to Tether, the offshore Chinese yuan CNH will represents a further expansion of the firm’s capabilitiies in facilitating the digital use of traditional currencies, such as the USDT that is pegged to the US Dollar and the EURT which is also pegged to the EURO.

The firm which has experienced several scandals continues to grow it’s basket of digital assets pegged to local currencies.
