What is USDC?
USDC is a digital stablecoin pegged 1:1 to the US Dollar. It is a digital currency which moves at the speed of the internet, can be exchanged in the same way we share content, and is cheaper and more secure than existing payment systems. USDC is managed by a consortium called Centre, founded by Circle and Coinbase. Since its launch in 2018, USDC has become a robust market infrastructure for applications and businesses of all sizes in nearly every industry. USDC flows seamlessly across many of the world’s leading blockchains and is widely used throughout this transformative internet layer.
Both institutional traders and retail investors use USDC as a base currency for quickly entering and exiting positions in crypto capital markets globally. Crypto-based businesses like NFT marketplaces and DeFi applications are increasingly using it. It plays a significant role in global remittances and allows individuals access to USD on-chain. Due to all these reasons, USDC is emerging as an essential player in DeFi.
