About USDC

USDC, also known as USD Coin, is a widely used stablecoin that is tied to the value of the US Dollar at a 1:1 ratio.

It was created through a partnership between Circle and Coinbase and is maintained by The Centre consortium.

Every USDC token in circulation is backed by $1 in reserves consisting of both cash and bonds, which are held by regulated financial institutions.

USDC was initially launched in a limited, test environment in late 2018, with the aim of becoming a digital currency for the digital age. Its design focuses on a future where digital transactions will be the norm.
