  • US Dollars held in custody accounts = $180,192,792
  • The issued and outstanding USDC tokens do not exceed the balance of the US Dollars held in custody accounts

Separately, while there won’t ever be more coins in circulation than dollars in reserve, reserve dollars may exceed coins in circulation due to timing. For a particular transaction, while dollars are deposited in advance, coins may be minted after the cutoff for a report.
