Native USDC comes live on Arbitrum
On 8 June, Arbitrum made an exciting announcement regarding the launch of native USDC on its platform. This news was further supported by Circle, the developer of USDC, who confirmed that their native token was now live on the platform. As part of this development, plans were implemented to gradually replace the bridged version of USDC with the native version.
Circle officially issues native USDC and guarantees a 1:1 redemption for US dollars. In addition to the native version, there is a bridged form of USDC on Arbitrum called USDC.e, derived from Ethereum. It’s important to note that Circle does not issue USDC.e. Currently, it is the largest Layer 2 (L2) platform.
