USDC Increasingly Becoming Preferred Stablecoin Over USDT

Latest data from Glassnode suggests USDC may be becoming the crypto market’s preferred stablecoin over USDT.

USDC’s Supply Surged Up Recently, While USDT’s Plunged Down

As per the latest weekly report from Glassnode, USDT has observed a large amount of redemptions recently, taking its supply down.

The relevant indicator here is the the “circulating supply,” which is a measure of the number of coins currently in circulation.

The below chart shows the trend in the Tether USD supply over the past few months:

USDT Supply

As you can see in the above graph, the total USDT supply had been sitting at all-time high values of around $83 billion just earlier in the month.

However, in the past week the indicator has observed a steep plunge as about $7.5 billion were redeemed from the coin. The total supply of Tether is now at $75.7 billion.

This decline in USDT’s supply came after Terra USD’s collapse as investors may have started to pull out of the stablecoin in fear of a similar event taking place with Tether.

The coin’s peg came under pressure as the supply sharply began to decline, and its price dropped down to as low as $0.95 on 12th May.

However, it didn’t take too long until the coin came back close to the USD price again. While this was happening, this is how USDC’s supply changed:

USDC Circulating Supply

USD Coin’s supply had been on a decline since February of this year, but over the last week the indicator has flipped the trend and is now sharply rising.

The total supply of the coin now stands at around $51 billion, following an increase of $2.6 billion during the period.

The trends in the supplies of the two coins may suggest that investors are now increasingly preferring to use USD Coin over Tether USD during times of fear such as in the current market.

BTC Price

At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s price floats around $29.5k, up 4% in the last seven days. Over the past month, the crypto has lost 27% in value.
