EURC is Coming to Base


EURC is coming to Base! Here’s what you need to know and what it means for the Base ecosystem. 

We’re excited to bring EURC to Base, its first euro-backed stablecoin, enabling developers to deliver faster and cheaper commerce with a euro-backed digital currency for global users. EURC is issued by Circle and now joins USDC - the largest stablecoin on Base with more than $3 billion in circulation as of July 9th.

The euro is the third largest fiat currency in the traditional financial system today, signifying a large opportunity for growth in the digital asset economy.

EURC and USDC are the first stablecoins on Base from a global issuer to be compliant with the new Markets in Crypto Assets (MiCA) regulation.


Benefits of EURC and USDC 

  • Regulated, fully reserved and redeemable 1:1 for euros and dollars respectively
  • Enables institutional on/off-ramps like Circle Mint for qualified businesses
  • Easy integration into both new and existing apps
  • Retail access to Coinbase’s global on- and off-ramp network

Use cases for EURC and USDC on Base

  • Cross-border payments with near-instant settlement for international remittances, peer-to-peer payments, and marketplace payouts at a fraction of the cost of legacy systems
  • Crypto capital markets with 24/7 access to a robust DeFi ecosystem
  • Access to euro and dollar store of value for savings and FX to hedge against inflation of local currencies
