USD Coin (USDC) developed by Circle Internet Financial has been launched on the Stellar blockchain. The stablecoin is now available in any Stellar (XLM) account through wallets such as Lobstr, Solar, Stellarport, Stellarx, and Stellarterm. USDC will now be tradable across Stellar’s ecosystem of more than 9,000 assets including NGNT, BRLT, ARST, EURT, TZS, and ZAR.

The Circle Account is a free service powered by a set of APIs that thousands of global businesses use to accept payments at scale, issue programmable payouts, build marketplaces, and soon receive a yield on top of their balance.

In the announcement release, Denelle Dixon, CEO and Executive Director of the Stellar Development Foundation said:

“Businesses and developers will benefit from Circle’s scale and liquidity to deliver on the kinds of products and use cases the Stellar was designed for, especially cross-border payments and tokenization.”

Firms based on the Stellar ecosystem such as Stably, FinClusive, and JST are providing the Stellar-native integrations to support liquidity and on/off ramp services for Stellar USDC.

Jeremy Allaire, Chairman and CEO of Circle, said:

“Having a trusted and transparent dollar stablecoin, like USDC, in market and available across Circle’s suite of API services for payments and treasury operations will help accelerate the pace and scale of these innovations.”

USDC Is the Second-Largest Stablecoin Following Tether

USDC is the second-largest stablecoin after Tether (USDT) originally developed on Ethereum. Over the past year, the stablecoin has seen its market capitalization increased by more than ten-fold with almost $6 billion worth of USDC in circulation.
