USDC is the fastest growing stablecoin

USDC is believed to be the USD-backed stablecoin that is fastest growing, unlike its rivals, and is fully backed by the CENTRE consortium founded by Coinnbase exchange and Circle.

Besides, unlike USDT, USDC has no issues regarding the sufficient amount of USD that its supply is pegged to.

Both Circle and BCB Group CEOs are excited about the partnership and believe it to be beneficial for each other and for USDC's further adoption.
