USDC.e — Fantom's canonical stablecoin

We're excited to announce the launch of Fantom's canonical stablecoin, supported by Circle and Wormhole.

Wormhole's bridged stablecoin, USDC.e, is backed by USDC and holds the potential to be upgraded to native USDC in the future by Circle. It will be the official, endorsed stablecoin of the Fantom ecosystem.

Unveiling Sonic's Launch and Beyond

Michael Kong published a detailed letter to share the future roadmap of Fantom. Sonic will be used to create a new best-in-class shared (decentralized) sequencer for L1 and L2 chains, capable of 180M daily transactions at sub-second finality.

This will serve as the foundation to relaunch Fantom as an entirely new community-centric brand.
