Stablecoins

USDC

USDC is primarily promoted by Coinbase and supported by the CENTRE consortium. Together with DAI, it has been the most used stablecoin in the DeFi ecosystem following a strong push from Coinbase who provides liquidity to projects.
USDC is the native currency of Ethereum blockchain. USDC on Polygon is the bridged version of USDC on Ethereum. The bridge used is the Multichain bridge. USDC has generated more than 23.3M transactions.
USDC Counterparty Risk: A
The process to bridge USDC uses the Multichain bridge which is controlled by a threshold distributed signature algorithm based on secure multi-party computation (SMPC). This algorithm enables the generation of a set of private keys on independently run nodes and then a corresponding public key will be produced through distributed computation. The application of the algorithm in the cross-chain interconnection of digital assets is a decentralized way to handle digital assets safely and effectively. There are currently 101k USDC holders on Fantom.
USDC Market Risk: B
USDC on Fantom has a $609M market cap, one of the highest market cap and trading volume of frc-20 tokens on Fantom. Furthermore the price is pegged to USD. For this reason we consider the risks of USDC mitigate by USD.
