Coinbase is supporting USDC.

This is going to be the on-ramp that enables millions of people to interact with Dapps without taking on balance sheet risk.

Everyone seems to think that Tether's main problem is whether it's 100% backed...but it's main problem is that it's centralized. And GUSD and USDC are just Tether 2.0.

I don't think USDC will implode. I just don't think it is very useful. It's mostly just a marketing gimmick.

Frankly, to this day, I feel 10x more comfortable holding USDC or GUSD than the Dai, because I trust the operational excellence of Coinbase and Gemini.
