What is USD Coin (USDC)?

USD Coin is a stablecoin pegged to the value of the US Dollar. It uses reserves of US Dollars and US Treasury bonds as collateral for each unit of USDC issued. USD Coin is the 2nd largest stablecoin by market cap. You can buy and sell USDC for any major cryptocurrency, like BTC, ETH, and XRP or traditional currency such as Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, and Euro. Trading cryptocurrencies is like foreign exchange of traditional currencies – you trade USDC for BTC the same way you trade CAD for USD. You can also trade USDC to CAD based on the USDC price.
