USD Coin (USDC) is a stablecoin developed by the Centre Consortium, a collaboration between Circle Internet Financial (Circle) and Coinbase. It's a digital asset issued by regulated financial institutions, it's fully backed by reserve assets, and it's redeemable on a 1:1 basis for US dollars.
Stellar USDC is part of Centre's multi-chain USDC framework: it coexists and interoperates with various USDC tokens on other chains, including the original Ethereum USDC token. Developers and businesses can integrate USDC into Stellar-based apps and services to allow users to make deposits and withdrawals; users can hold, transfer, and trade USDC just like any other asset on the network. This makes USDC an ideal asset for Stellar, which is designed to connect all the world's currencies on a single platform.
Stellar USDC combines the power of the Stellar network with a fully-backed and trusted digital US Dollar asset. Now, dollars can move anywhere, to anyone, in the form of Stellar USDC, and convert instantly into and out of the worlds’ currencies.
