Tether (USDT) is now available on Statemine. You can find their official announcement here.


USDT was made into a sufficient asset with Referendum 197, which means that the receiver account doesn't need to hold an existential deposit of at least 3.33 microKSM (0.00000333 KSM). See this link for more information on sufficient vs. non-sufficient assets.


WARNING! Anyone can create an asset on Statemine, with any name and symbol. Therefore it is important to make sure you are transferring the official asset, which you can determine by looking at the unique asset ID. For Tether, this ID is: 1984


NOTE: Even though these instructions are for transferring USDT, they apply to transferring any other asset too, on both Statemine and Statemint.
