  • Base’s stablecoin supply crosses $2.3 billion.
  • The platform maintains the third-largest TVL market share.

Since incorporating native minting of the stablecoin USDC, Base has witnessed a notable increase in its supply on the platform.

This development has had a positive impact on the stablecoin market cap within the platform’s ecosystem. Recent data indicates that the stablecoin market cap has experienced substantial growth.

The surge in market cap has, in turn, contributed to an increase in the Total Value Locked (TVL) on the platform.

Native USDC on Base cross $2 billion

Recent data from Token Terminal highlights a substantial surge in the volume of USDC supply on Base following the platform’s adoption of native stablecoin minting.

The data reveals that the volume of USDC supply was now over $2.2 billion, marking a significant increase. Moreover, the chart indicates that the supply continues to grow steadily.

This notable uptick in supply draws attention to stablecoin market capitalization within the platform’s ecosystem.

AMBCrypto’s examination of the Base stablecoin market cap reveals a consistent upward trajectory, mirroring the rise in USDC supply.

At the time of this writing, the stablecoin market capitalization has surpassed $2.3 billion, marking a substantial increase over recent weeks.

At the time of this writing, the TVL was over $5.8 billion. Both charts depict an upward trend, indicating the potential for further volume expansion in the days ahead.
