Euro Coin, or EURC, launched on Ethereum in 2022 to provide businesses and developers with a fully reserved, euro-backed stablecoin they can trust. Euro Coin helps unlock new opportunities for global commerce, faster and more efficient FX, and greater access to the euro around the world.
Today, we’re bringing Euro Coin natively to Avalanche, which now makes Euro Coin the latest Circle-issued stablecoin to go multi-chain. EURC on Avalanche is now available to efficiently send, spend, save, lend and borrow in the innovative Avalanche ecosystem. Developers can benefit from building with a trusted, euro-backed stablecoin that’s native to the Avalanche network, enabling both new and existing apps to provide optionality for users to transact in euros on-chain.
Circle offers access to EURC on Avalanche liquidity for qualified businesses with a Circle Account. The Circle Account and Circle APIs also make it easy to swap Euro Coin natively between Ethereum and Avalanche.
