As Bloomberg states, Circle’s stablecoin dubbed USDC sees more demand than any other recently launched dollar-backed cryptocurrency, including the Gemini Dollar (GUSD). The data provided by Etherscan clearly shows the coin is leading by the amount of total supply with $127.4 million of USD Coin since its very inception in November. For comparison, GUSD is sitting only at $13 mln.

While trying to figure out the reason behind the Circle’s success, a crypto pundit Aaron Brown claims that the USDC is more related to cryptocurrencies than to traditional assets, and this gives it an edge over other similar stablecoins. This coin, he explains, isn’t entirely tied to the success of a single company.

Earlier, U.Today reported that USDC became the very first stablecoin listed on Coinbase.
