Paolo Ardoino on Tether’s Advances in Global Collaboration

This partnership marks a significant milestone for Tether, showcasing its dedication to advancing its global strategy of constructing resilient cities and nations across the globe.


Paolo Ardoino, the Chief Technology Officer of Tether, emphasized the importance of this collaboration, stating, “By closely working with the Government of Georgia, Tether seeks to cultivate an environment that fosters the flourishing usage of peer-to-peer technology.” 

This transformative alliance solidifies Tether’s position as an innovative infrastructure partner for cities and nations worldwide, highlighting its recognition of the evolving digital landscape. Tether understands the necessity to embrace change and expand its offerings beyond stability. 

Tether Empowers Peer-to-Peer Tech Startups in Georgia

With their profound understanding of the potential of cryptocurrencies, Tether aspires to empower cities, facilitating the adoption of groundbreaking blockchain technologies like Bitcoin and peer-to-peer solutions such as Keet and Holepunch.

This collaborative effort will primarily focus on nurturing a vibrant startup ecosystem in Georgia, fostering an environment conducive to decentralized solutions, adoption, and the growth of peer-to-peer technology startups. 


By showcasing Georgia’s favorable working conditions and exceptional quality of life, Tether and the Government of Georgia intend to attract international attention and investment, stimulating the success and expansion of innovative blockchain startups.

On the Flipside

  • The focus on attracting international attention and investment to Georgia’s blockchain sector may overshadow the development of local startups and entrepreneurs.
  • Tether’s emphasis on stability and resilience may be overshadowed by the ongoing regulatory scrutiny surrounding stablecoins.
  • While Tether aims to create a flourishing environment for peer-to-peer technology usage, the effectiveness of their solutions, such as Keet and Holepunch, should be subject to a comprehensive examination and evaluation of their real-world impact.

Why This Matters

The strategic collaboration between Tether and Georgia represents a significant step towards establishing Georgia as a central hub for peer-to-peer and blockchain technology.
