Welcome to this week’s issue of The Baking Sheet!
As Tez/Dev has concluded, this week has been business as usual within the Tezos ecosystem. Kathmandu has passed the proposal phase successfully and is now entering the next stage of the governance cycle, exploration phase. Now is the time to vote bakers, for a quick refresh on what Kathmandu brings to the protocol, check our article on the features proposed.
For this week’s issue, we’re going to highlight the recent Tether news. 
Hello, USDT
If you’ve been active in the Tezos community for some time, you’ve likely encountered the statement “when USDT?”. 
The wait is over. 
About two months ago, we learned that Tether had plans to launch its stablecoin on the Tezos network. In their press release, Paolo Ardoino (CTO at Tether) cited a few reasons for why they chose to do so. 
“We’re excited to launch USD₮ on Tezos, offering its growing and vibrant community access to the most liquid, stable, and trusted stablecoin in the digital token space. Tezos is coming fast onto the scene and we believe that this integration will be essential to its long-term growth.”
This week, the integration finally went live making Tezos the twelfth blockchain in which USDT is available. 
I think this news is pretty significant as it’s part of a trend we’ve been seeing as of late. If you were able to make it to Tez/Dev, they were quite a few teams/organizations present. 
That’s worth noting because not only is core development accelerating at a rapid pace (as indicative at Tez/Dev), but DeFi on Tezos has been growing in culmination with that. 
But don’t just take it from me, in the words of Alessandro de Carli of Papers:
“With the introduction of USD₮, on and off ramps into the Tezos DeFi ecosystem are simplified and efficient. Tezos is an exemplary system with features and tools which have enabled innovative application designs not possible on other networks. The launch of USD₮ on Tezos will undoubtedly unlock new DeFi products and I expect the impact on volume growth of the Tezos DeFi ecosystem to be remarkable.”
Last call to nominate for Tezos Rewards
 This is the final week for submissions on who you think deserves recognition and tez for their contributions to the Tezos ecosystem. 
There is up to 5000 tez available per month for the Tezos community with all different ranges of skills and contributions. 
Tezos hits over 11K contract deployments
Tezos blockchain hits an all time high of new monthly contract deployments with over 11,000! From our experience at Tez/Dev, the developer community is growing rapidly and its exciting to see people choosing to build Tezos because of its effective on-chain governance and continuous evolution.
