Well, through sheer coincidence, this week when the U.S. Treasury Department, Federal Reserve and FDIC announced plans to backstop all deposits at two failed banks, they were also pledging to secure at least 8% of the collateral for the USDC stablecoin. Circle, the stablecoin’s issuer, said it keeps around a quarter of USDC’s reserve assets at about six banks. The bailout benefited Circle, which was working overtime last weekend while USDC depegged from the U.S. dollar.
Circle Ventures, the venture arm of the USDC-issuer, and IDG Capital also joined the round.
Market turmoil resulting from Silicon Valley Bank's collapse briefly caused Circle's USDC (USDC-USD) stablecoin to break its peg to the dollar. In response, the stablecoin issuer's management team has called upon the U.S. congress to urgently pass stablecoin legislation. In an interview with Yahoo Finance's Jennifer Schonberger, House Committee on Financial Services Chair Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), says the legislation could be passed in just a few days, hinting that the delay was due to concerns over which political party would be in control of the House of Representatives."The only thing that interfered, I think, with its passage was the anticipation that the house was going to change and it was going to be in the hands of the Republicans and they should take charge rather than those of us on the Democratic side," said Ranking Member Waters. Rep. Waters declined to give a timetable for the legislation, though she did reaffirm that she and Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC), are focused on stablecoin legislation and have bipartisan support to get it done.
