What is USD Coin?

USD Coin (USDC) is fiat-collateralized stablecoin that offers the advantages of transacting with blockchain-based assets while mitigating price risk. Each USDC is issued as an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain and is 100% collateralized by a corresponding USD held in accounts subject to regular public reporting of reserves.

What is USD Coin used for in 2022?

USDC can be transacted over the Ethereum blockchain in the same manner as Ether or any other ERC-20 asset. If a user wishes to redeem USDC they can send tokens to an address controlled by CENTRE members who will destroy the tokens and transfer fiat currency to the user's bank account. USDC’s existence on public blockchains allows traders and exchanges to use USDC as an alternative to fiat currencies allowing them to outsource their banking needs to CENTRE. USDC existence as an ERC-20 token on Ethereum allows it to be integrated with Ethereum based applications. In addition to being used a method of payment, USDC can also be lent, borrowed, staked, and traded using DeFi protocols.

USD Coin technology explained

USD Coin is the first implementation of CENTRE's fiat-back stablecoin network, launched as an ERC-20 compliant token on Ethereum. USDC relies on a proof-of-reserves system to ensure that reserve assets match circulating tokens.

CENTRE contracts manage the minting and the redemption/burning of stablecoins, which can be used for both the exchange and wallet interoperability use cases. Customers who on-board through a stablecoin on-ramp, such as a web application created and maintained by a licensed CENTRE token-issuing member, can transfer fiat funds into that CENTRE issuer’s account. The issuer then executes a series of commands with the CENTRE network to verify, mint, and validate fiat tokens pegged to the value of those deposited funds. The customer can then transfer those tokens elsewhere in order to use them. Redemption follows the reverse sequence: fiat tokens are burned when a customer visits an off-ramp such as a web application maintained by a licensed CENTRE issuing member. Upon successful verification and validation, funds from underlying fiat reserves would be transferred to the customer’s external bank.

USD Coin governance

What is USD Coin governance?

CENTRE members are the sole entities capable of altering the circulating supply of USDC tokens. Members issue tokens when users deposit fiat currency into CENTRE member bank accounts while CENTRE members destroy tokens when users redeem tokens for fiat currency deposits in CENTRE member bank accounts. In order to prove that reserves exist and the system is solvent, USDC relies on a proof-of-reserves system whereby the system is fully collateralized when the number of USDC in circulation matches the value of the funds held in accounts operated by CENTRE members. CENTRE published monthly reports with attestations from Grant Thornton LLP proving the US dollar reserves that back the USDC tokens in circulation.

Monthly Transparent Reports

The CENTRE consortium currently has two members: Coinbase and Circle.
