USD Coin (USDC) is a stablecoin designed to provide users with a means of transferring and storing value on the blockchain without exposing users to the inherent volatility of the cryptocurrency market.
Every USDC token is backed by US dollars held in reserve, with the value of USDC pegged on a 1:1 basis to the US Dollar. Created and managed by blockchain industry consortium Centre, USDC operates across multiple blockchain networks that include Ethereum, Solana, Algorand, TRON, and Stellar.
USDC provides users with extremely low volatility and is a fully-backed asset, but there are multiple USDC news factors that can impact the adoption and use of USD Coin. First launched in 2018, USDC is backed by major cryptocurrency industry ventures that include Coinbase and Circle.

Reserve transparency is a critical issue within the stablecoin ecosystem — while blockchain networks and cryptocurrencies operate with the principle of decentralization as core to their design, USDC and many other stablecoins rely on centralized reserves in order to maintain value.
USD Coin provides users with monthly insights into reserve balances, which typically consist of a broad spectrum of US Government bonds, USD fiat currency, and other assets. While monthly updates provide insight into the way in which USDC is collateralized, many other market factors and USDC news events can impact USDC markets and the broader cryptocurrency ecosystem.
