On his side, Arbitrum will rename the Ethereum ‘bridged’ version of USDC on blockchain explorers to ” USDC.e “.
“Arbitrum will work with the ecosystem’s applications to ensure a seamless smooth transition of liquidity from USDC bridged to USDC native over time,” the foundation said in a blog post.
USDC will now be offered natively on 9 blockchains with Ethereum, Solana, Avalanche, TRON, Algorand, Stellar, Flow, Hedera and therefore Arbitrum. The digital coin’s market cap has largely receded this year in favor of Tether’s USDT market cap, which recently reached a new ATH.
