Introducing USD Coin

A stablecoin brought to you by Circle and Coinbase

USD Coin

An open source, smart contract-based stablecoin

True financial interoperability requires a price stable means of value exchange. Centre’s technology for fiat-backed stablecoins brings stability to crypto. The initial implementation is USD Coin (USDC), an ERC-20 token creating possibilities in payments, lending, investing, trading and trade finance — and the ecosystem will grow as other fiat currency tokens are added.

A fiat to blockchain solution

As more goods and services are tokenized, smart contract platforms will become fundamental building blocks of value exchange. Centre’s open-source and transparent stablecoin framework allows fiat to interact with smart contracts, giving developers a viable way to use real world currencies in blockchain applications.

Financially transparent

Centre stablecoins are issued by regulated and licensed financial institutions that maintain full reserves of the equivalent fiat currency. Issuers are required to regularly report their USD reserve holdings, and Grant Thornton LLP issues reports on those holdings every month.
