The Bank of Thailand (BOT) in a statement said that although THT, which was created abroad on the Terra Platform, was not being used as a medium of exchange, there could be fragmentation to the Thai currency system "should THT or other similar stablecoins come to replace, substitute or compete with the baht issued by the BOT".

This would ultimately affect the public's confidence in the stability of the Thai currency system, the BOT said.
"The general public should exercise caution and refrain from participating in any activity involving THT, as there are no legal assurances or protection, and users could also be at risk of cyber theft and money laundering," the BOT said.
