USD Coin, or USDC, is a trusted, widely accepted digital dollar issued by Circle Internet Financial (Circle). Circle, founded in 2013, is a regulated technology company and licensed money transmitter based in the United States.
USDC is available 24/7 and moves at internet speed. Billions of USDC change hands every day.
What makes USDC so appealing to people in countries suffering from high inflation and currency devaluation is that USDC is a stable and secure store of value, similar to gold or other precious metals, tied directly and safely to the US dollar.
