USD Coin (USDC) is a type of cryptocurrency that is referred to as a stablecoin. You can always redeem 1 USD Coin for US$1.00, giving it a stable price. On Coinbase, eligible customers can earn rewards for every USD Coin they hold.
For customers with a US dollar bank account, 1 USDC can always be redeemed for US$1.00, giving it a stable price.
Each USDC is backed by one dollar or asset with equivalent fair value, which is held in accounts with US regulated financial institutions.
USD Coin is an Ethereum token, so you can store it in an Ethereum-compatible wallet, like Coinbase Wallet.
USD Coin is designed to let dollars move globally from your crypto wallet to other exchanges, businesses, and people.
