Coinbase removes ‘backed by US dollars’ claim for USDC stablecoin

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewod NJ, Coinbase has made an important update on the USD Coin page following an audit. The page previously stated that all of the coin’s reserves were held in cash, but the audit found that USDC’s reserves were not fully backed by US dollars held in a bank account. Coinbase’s USDC page now states that each USDC is backed by one dollar or asset with equivalent fair value. Users can always redeem one USDC for one US dollar. Circle, the company that oversees USDC, recently announced plans to become a full-reserve national digital currency bank in the US.
