Coinbase launches commission-free USDC trading in the UK.
Crypto exchange Coinbase has waived its commission fees when you buy or sell the stablecoin USDC using a currency other than US dollars.
This is a paid content promotion brought to you by Coinbase.
Visit coinbase.com or review our stablecoin whitepaper for more information on USDC.
USDC is a stablecoin that’s pegged to the US dollar on a 1:1 basis. Every USDC in circulation is backed up by $1 or asset with equivalent fair value held in reserve with US regulated financial institutions.
In 2018, Coinbase co-founded the Centre Consortium which developed USDC. Its aim was for USDC to be accepted by as many wallets, exchanges, service providers and dApps (decentralised applications) as possible.
And Coinbase says that it wants “to build more on-ramps for users to access USDC”, which is why it says it waived commission fees for buying or selling USDC on its platform.
In addition, Coinbase customers in the UK can earn up to a 1% yield on their USDC holdings.
USDC NO COMMISSION DISCLOSURE: This feature may not be available to all regions. No commission fees attributed to Coinbase will be charged until further notice. However, spread, and processing fees charged by third party processors, will continue to apply.
