About USD Coin
USD Coin (USDC) was launched by Circle back in September and it is the first stablecoin to be launched by the company that owns Poloniex. In fact, the success of the token was so big that Coinbase, the largest exchange in the United States, decided to adopt USDC as its own and now some new assets are only paired with it instead of the traditional Bitcoin (BTC).
At the moment, more than 50 exchanges, protocols, platforms, apps and wallets have already started to use USDC. The trading volume is growing in a steady way and the main current objective of USD Coin is to eventually be The Stablecoin of the market, just like Tether was before so many other options started to appear. All USDC is collateralized by USD and you can change it at any time.
