Why It Is a Huge Development for Stellar (XLM) and USD Coin (USDC) Users
According to the published blog post, USDC is bringing a new, stable, and engaged USD asset to Stellar network, for developers and users to utilize, especially during transactions.

Stressing the benefits that the new partnership is bringing to users, the blog post says: “It allows for greater growth and innovation as developers and businesses leverage these assets to create new and compelling use cases for retail and enterprise clients. This will drive us to push this network to the next level.”
Additionally, USDC is also bringing a huge value and opportunity to a group formed by Coinbase and Circle, targeted at building standard set of protocols for fiat-denominated cryptocurrencies that are capable of working across different wallets, currencies, and platforms.
This partnership between Stellar and USD Coin (USDC) will also help in building towards different applications and use cases. Considering the unique focus of Stellar on cross-border payments, anchor model, and transactional use cases, Centre is assured of needed support to achieve its vision for cryptocurrency backed by fiat.
As for the users of USDC, they are expected to benefit from Stellar’s fast settlement and low transaction fees. The report stated that the collaboration will bring a tremendous potential scale to the Stellar ecosystem.
Conclusively, USDC should go live on the network by the first quarter of 2021.
