USDC Multichain

Welcome to #StableSeptember, a series where we provide a preview of what it means to bring native USDC to new blockchain ecosystems. Take a look below for what you need to know about the upcoming launch of USDC on NEAR. 

 

What you need to know

USDC issued by Circle will be native to NEAR and can be considered the official form of USDC for the ecosystem. Over time, native USDC liquidity may grow and replace the currently circulating bridged USDC (known as USDC.e) liquidity that comes from Ethereum.

 

Benefits of native USDC

  • Fully reserved and always redeemable 1:1 for US dollars
  • Enables institutional on/off-ramps

On launch day for native USDC, NEAR will share details on the ecosystem apps that will offer easy ways to seamlessly swap from bridged USDC.e to USDC.

 

Bridged USDC from Ethereum

 

Native USDC issued by Circle

NEAR will work with ecosystem apps to provide a smooth transition of liquidity from USDC.e to USDC over time. There will be no immediate changes to the NEAR Rainbow Bridge and it will continue to operate normally.


Native USDC on NEAR will be here before you know it! Please reach out on Discord if you have any questions. Stay tuned for more updates during #StableSeptember.
