The stability of the dollar and the flexibility of crypto
Why choose USDC
Backed by US dollars
USDC is a stablecoin backed by US dollars, which are held in reserve by regulated financial institutions. The tokens themselves are also issued by regulated financial institutions, and every token can be redeemed for one dollar — effectively providing a price stable cryptocurrency.
Powered by blockchain
Because it’s an ERC-20 token that runs on the Ethereum network instead of traditional bank rails, USDC lets you move dollars anywhere in the world in minutes instead of days for very little cost. Use it with any participating wallet, exchange or service.
Every month, the US dollar reserves for USDC are attested to by top 5 accounting services firm, Grant Thornton LLC. We publish those reports here so that you can be confident that USDC is always 100% redeemable for dollars — this is true financial and operational transparency.
