- Large fluctuations in the exchange rate between USDT and fiat currencies will result in significant fluctuations in the value of USDT token in your account against fiat currencies, i.e. there is a loss in the value of USDT held by the user against fiat currencies, and users shall assume all the losses caused by this on their own.
