USDT.e and USDT are two tokens available on the Avalanche network that are pegged to US Dollars. The key difference is that USDT.e is a 'wrapped token' that was initially deployed on the Avalanche blockchain, similar to ETH and WETH on Ethereum mainnet.

After the success of Avalanche and USDT.e on AVAX, the team behind Tether (USDT) decided to deploy their native token 'USDT' on Avalanche, which means it is not wrapped. With time, they will start to phase out USDT.e on Avalanche, but the token will not lose peg and there are no underlying risks.

What is USDT.e?

USDT.e is a wrapped token that represents one share of USDT. USDT.e was the first stablecoin deployed on the Avalanche Bridge (AB) in the middle of 2021 when the Avalanche C Chain first went live.

As the AVAX network grew, there was more demand for USDT and the team behind Tether decided to properly launch their stablecoin on the Avalanche network. With time, they intend to phase out USDT.e and make USDT the only available version on the AVAX network.
