What Is USD Coin (USDC)?

USD Coin (USDC) is the second largest stablecoin by market capitalization, behind only its key rival, Tether (USDT). Similar to Tether, USDC maintains a 1:1 peg to the U.S. Dollar. Each USDC is fully backed by the USD reserves of the coin’s issuer — a partnership between the Coinbase crypto exchange and digital payments company Circle.
While Tether is currently the more popular stablecoin for payments, USDC is also widely used, especially as a store of value. Compared to its larger rival, USDC enjoys the reputation of being the more transparent coin, with comparatively higher levels of regulatory compliance.
In 2021, the two leading card processing giants, Visa and Mastercard, enabled USDC payment functionality for some of their products. With acceptance by the leading card companies and a reputation for being a highly compliant stablecoin, USDC will likely serve as an important bridge for transfers between fiat currency and cryptocurrencies.
