USDC set to land on Stellar in 2021

The Centre consortium announced on Thursday that USD Coin (USDC) will soon be available on the Stellar blockchain.

This marks the first time that a major stablecoin will be made available on the platform, joining the ranks of Anchor USD, WhiteStandard and some others. USDC is currently the second largest stablecoin in the market behind Tether (USDT).

Circle said that USDC is expected to be available on Stellar in Q1 2021. USDC is primarily hosted on Ethereum, which holds virtually the entirety of its supply at $2.7 billion. Algorand was onboarded in June 2020, though it found limited success — only $3.5 million USDC currently circulates on the blockchain.
