As recently reported, The fintech company Circle is adding its crypto stablecoin to the Polygon blockchain. With USDC, users won’t have to bridge their USDC from the ETH mainnet to Polygon and the bridge will be cumbersome for most because it is slower than the typical ETH transactions and incurs gas fees. As Circle added USDC to Polygon, Jeremy Allaire as the CEO said that his reasoning behind why the company added USDC to Polygon is that it now features 20,000 Dapps.
While Polygon-native USDC could be new and USDC is not since $110 million was poured into the creation by the venture capitalists in 2018. today, USDC exists as a multi-chain stablecoin and can be used on the Ethereum mainnet, Algorand, Stellar, Solana, Flow, Tron, and now Polygon. The Polygon Technology Enterprise lead Antoni Martin said that he believes Polygon USDC will help smooth over the fiat onramp and the user experience overall and will be integrated for automatic payouts.
