Tether, a stablecoin issuer, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Georgian government. The objective is to establish Bitcoin and peer-to-peer (P2P) infrastructures within the nation. 

This strategic alliance between Tether and the Georgian government will primarily concentrate on creating the necessary infrastructure to foster a flourishing startup ecosystem in Georgia.

This joint initiative aims to draw global attention and investment to the emerging decentralized sector. The alliance seeks to promote state-level P2P technology growth and facilitate the development of related financial tools. 

Key areas of focus include educating about Bitcoin, constructing a payment infrastructure for merchants, and creating a robust, open, and private P2P communication system.

Tether announced that its collaboration with the Georgian government will focus on establishing and instituting a strong, self-reliant financial and communication system. This includes promoting the acceptance of digital payment and communication systems based on P2P technology, and enhancing the current infrastructure to guarantee its resilience and reliability in supporting digital asset solutions. 

Georgia also plans to establish a dedicated fund for domestic startups, aiming to foster the development of digital asset technologies. This move is designed to position Georgia as a nation offering a compelling ecosystem for tech startups.

The Deputy Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development, Irakli Nadareishvili, said the collaborative effort “will contribute to the development of local blockchain technologies in the country, as well as the introduction of companies operating in this sector in Georgia.”

In teaming up with the Georgian Government, Tether is focused on nurturing innovation and advancing Georgia as a worldwide frontrunner in peer-to-peer technologies. This collaboration will yield benefits for the local startup landscape while also enhancing Georgia's standing as an attractive hub for international companies and professionals.
