Prominent business personalities like Elon Musk, Michael Saylor and Mark Cuban continued to engage the public with discussions revolving around the benefits of blockchain technology and decentralized finance. In remarks to the reddit group r/Wallstreetbets, Cuban said that “stocks will be on the blockchain in the future.”
Circle’s USD Coin (USDC) has now been integrated with the Stellar blockchain, enabling the stablecoin to be transacted on the Stellar network and possibly take some of the strain of the clogged Ethereum network.
Data from Glassnode shows USDC transaction volume on Ethereum has steadily been increasing over the past year as the Coinbase backed coin steadily gains ground on Tether (USDT). Utilizing Stellar blockchain will greatly reduce USDC transaction fees and free up space on the Ethereum network.
