Coinbase and Circle forge new path for USDC



Coinbase and Circle twitter are collaborating to enhance the reach of the stablecoin market, with Coinbase acquiring a significant share in Circle. Simultaneously, USDC is set to expand across six different blockchains.

“As part of this next chapter, Coinbase and Circle have reached a new agreement,” Circle said. “Reflecting Coinbase’s belief in the fundamental importance of stablecoins to the broader crypto economy, Coinbase is taking an equity stake in Circle.”

This collaboration is positioned to elevate the stablecoin sector to new heights. Half a decade ago, the two entities introduced USDC, a stablecoin intended to transform the financial landscape.

Stablecoins have emerged as a vital component in the cryptocurrency world, enabling global users to effortlessly access traditional currencies like U.S. dollars while benefiting from the perks of digital assets: swift, secure, and programmable transactions. 

USDC, renowned as one of the most widely embraced digital dollar stablecoins, has played a pivotal role in driving this transformation.

According to Circle, the expansion aims to empower developers and enterprises by offering them increased choices and flexibility in utilizing USDC.

Furthermore, with the ongoing evolution of regulations concerning stablecoins, Circle, the issuer of USDC, will assume full control over the issuance and governance of the stablecoin. 

This shift eliminates the need for the Centre Consortium, a self-governance entity previously overseeing USDC. The Centre Consortium is a self-governance consortium that was established by Circle and Coinbase. 

It was initially formed to oversee the development and management of the USDC stablecoin. 

Nevertheless, as the stablecoin landscape evolves and regulatory clarity increases, the relevance of a distinct governance entity like Centre diminishes. 

 “Centre will no longer exist as a stand-alone entity and Circle will remain as the issuer of USDC, bringing any Centre governance and operations responsibilities in-house.”
