The amount of coins in circulation has been raised by Circle, the company that is responsible for the stablecoin known as USDC. Stablecoins are a form of digital money that, in comparison to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum, are known for their lower degree of price volatility. This is accomplished by linking its value on the market to an external asset, such as the dollar in the United States. As a consequence of this, they have the potential to act as a bridge currency between volatile crypto assets and more traditional assets that are more stable.

Over the course of the past year, Circle’s stablecoin, which is denoted by the ticker symbol USDC, has witnessed an expansion in both its reach and its level of popularity. For instance, during the summer of 2017, Mastercard said that the company is working on a plan to create a system that will enable cryptocurrency payments to be made between cardholders and retailers while utilizing USDC as the underlying currency.
