The announcement received both positive and negative reactions within the Tether community.
They will SLOWLY buy BTC for that USDT, then use Bitmex and margin leverage to push the price down. For another half of USDT will buy back BTC at lower price. Profit from any side

Currently, we cannot say with certainty how the new USDT will be spread. After the Tether’s printing in the third quarter of 2017, the Bitcoin price (BTC) increased considerably. Now, however, it is supposed that the supply will help EOS as well as other altcoins to increase its range of use.
According to CoinMarketCap, USDT ranks 10th due to the high volume of transactions. The crypto asset detonated even TRON, Monero, NEO, Dash, Ethereum Classic. In the last 24 hours, Tether recorded sales of $ 4,333,130,000, being traded at $ 1.00.
Online information indicates that the Tether platform owns financial resources for at least 2.5 billion tokens. However, it is not known whether funds from the bank account followed USDT printings or they were obtained over time on a sales basis.
