No. USDT could be one of the biggest scams of all times.
Be very very carefull if you want to use USDT as your basecoin.

Main problem: USDT isn't really backed by $ anymore.
The company behind it can just keep on printing fake money without any audits nor any guarantees that it serves any real value. It's a coin that could implode and drag the entire crypto market down with it for many years to come.
