Circle and Coinbase are confident that interest in USDC will continue to grow, bolstered by a desire for a more transparent and compliant USD token from market participants. Circle and Coinbase co-founded the CENTRE Consortium with the goal of establishing a standard for fiat on the internet and providing a governance framework and network for the global, mainstream adoption of fiat stablecoins.

Customers can tokenize dollars into USDC and redeem USDC into dollars through both Circle and Coinbase, making USDC the industry’s first open, fungible and interoperable fiat stablecoin.
