How is it different from Bitcoin?

The decentralised block-chain regime of Bitcoin was conceptualised to run a parallel currency system against the existing form of fiat currencies. Tether tokens on the other hand are backed by the reserve of fiat currencies, which helps it being a stable crypto-coin along with utilization of the block-chain technology.

The other difference is that Tether doesn’t owns a block-chain and operate on the borrowed mechanism i.e. Omni layer.
