Yes! Tether releases full audit after months of waiting and comes clean (If you don’t know Tether is a token backed by the US dollar has been controversial because they have not been transparent and have not had an audit).
This news of Tether spread in the subreddit r/Buttcoin. Although this is just a joke we would definitely want this to be true someday and would want Tether to have an audit and be more transparent.

And our very own prank – Donald Trump and Roger Ver team up to announce national cryptocurrency
Donald Trump and Roger Ver come together to create the greatest cryptocurrency ever! The TrumpCoin (We later came to know there’s already a coin named TrumpCoin).
To make the Trumpcoin a reality, President Trump has asked Roger Ver, to fork Bitcoin Cash and tell everyone that Trumpcoin is the future as it is designed to be only used by Americans and not by anyone who is not American.
The Chief Scientist will be Dr. Craig Wright who created the technology to send data with the speed of light with only the use of a single tweet.
The new token will also be integrated with Twitter and will automatically increase in value once President Trump tweets something.
