Protos: DRW-owned Cumberland is Tether whale

Crypto exchange FTX parent Alameda Research, founded by 29-year-old crypto billionaire Sam Bankman-Fried, accounted for nearly a third of all Tether minted. Liquidity provider Cumberland Global, owned by Chicago-based trading firm DRW, had even more Tether minted to its name. Protos understands the nearest competitor minted a mere few hundred million USDT.
