Days after FTX crashed, Tether (USDT) lost support and traded as low as 93 cents. Most trading pairs on the exchange have recovered to $1, although CoinGecko data shows that some of their trading pairs on Binance continue to trade at 99 cents.

In late September, Tether was ordered by a U.S. judge in New York to produce financial documents related to USDT backing. This is separate from the New York Supreme Court lawsuit, which ordered the New York Attorney General to release documents he collected while investigating Tether reserves.
