After several years of having four base pairs, today we have made an important expansion with a brand new fifth base pair! The newest coin to receive the honor is USDC, a stablecoin pegged to the United States Dollar.
Although we already support the stablecoin USDT as a base pair, we feel that USDC is a more promising alternative which is likely to stand the test of time. USDC has been created by the Circle consortium which includes experienced crypto companies such as Coinbase, and they complete regular audits proving that each USDC issued on the blockchain is backed by a real United States Dollar held in a bank.
In the first round of listings we have added five pairs with USDC - ADA, BTC, ETH, LINK, and LTC. There are also two existing pairs of USDC/XRP and USDC/USDT which are also available, giving you a total of 7 ways to trade your USDC on the platform. USDC is also supported in many of our other features, such as Power Piggy investments and Loans. We will also be consistently adding more USDC pairs week by week.
Finally, we also have an exciting teaser to share - we will be establishing our sixth base pair very soon. Can you guess what it might be?
