The Complete Guide to USDC.e on Fantom

The Complete Guide to USDC.e on Fantom

On April 5, 2024, we launched Fantom’s canonical stablecoin, USDC.e, supported by Circle and Wormhole.

USDC.e on Wormhole is bridged from native USDC, located in a smart contract on Ethereum, and holds the potential to be upgraded to native USDC in the future by Circle. It’s the official, endorsed stablecoin of the Fantom ecosystem (and all future network upgrades), referred to as the canonical stablecoin.

This complete guide will be updated regularly and provides an overview of the dApps on which you can use USDC.e to provide liquidity. If your DeFi application offers an USDC.e opportunity, please reach out to have it included below.

Liquidity From the Fantom Foundation

The Fantom Foundation has provided an initial liquidity boost to the USDC.e trading pairs on Beethoven X and Equalizer Exchange. Since the USDC.e contract can be upgraded to native USDC by Circle, the Foundation has supplied liquidity to these pairs to consolidate liquidity into our new canonical stablecoin, anticipating its potential upgrade.

We’ll increase liquidity support for the USDC.e trading pairs on DEXs as required to ensure its ongoing and smooth operation.
