USDC Exchange on eToroX
The USDC (USD Coin) is one of 17 stablecoins currently being traded on the eToroX exchange, including eToroX’s tokenised US Dollar (USDEX), the Euro (EURX) and the Pound Sterling (GBPX), with 99 trading pairs available on eToroX.
The USDC (USD Coin) — a US dollar-backed tokenised stablecoin — was recently joined by five new stablecoins on the eToroX Exchange, including the Hong Kong dollar (HKDX), the Turkish lira (TRYX), the Polish zloty (PLNX), the South African Rand (ZARX), and the Singapore dollar (SGDX). The goal of launching these new stablecoins was to find a way to bridge the gap between the world of cryptoassets and traditional financial markets.
Created with the idea of building an “open financial system for the world” — USDC (USD Coin) — allows unbanked and under-banked individuals in any country to hold a US dollar-backed asset with only a mobile phone, according to Coinbase, a digital currency exchange based in San Francisco, California, which developed the coin together with the CENTRE Consortium. Unlike regular US dollars, USD Coin doesn’t require a bank account or a fixed address, and can be sent around the world at an extremely low cost — in just a few minutes.
USDC (USD Coin) is a cryptoasset linked to a traditional fiat currency — in this case, to the US dollar, which can now be traded on eToroX Exchange. The price of the USDC (USD Coin) is linked to the US dollar on a 1:1 value basis, so if you trade USDC (USD Coin) on eToroX, it is the same as trading US fiat dollars.
USDC Trading on eToroX Exchange
The USDC (USD Coin) “came to life” in 2019 — representing a fusion of the traditional world of financial markets and the world of blockchain. Stablecoins were introduced into the world of cryptocurrencies to counteract their inherent lack of stability.
To buy USDC, you need a verified eToroX account, which is funded with any of the supported cryptoassets, which you can then exchange against USDC.
What Affects the USDC (USD Coin)
The USDC (USD Coin) is influenced by the following drivers:
- Cyberattacks that could affect the USDC on the Ethereum blockchain
- Third-party platforms
- Legislative and regulatory changes that could affect the tokenisation of US dollars into USDC
