How to buy USD Coin in Greece
Is USDC a good investment in Greece?
The USD coin was released in September 2018 as a bridge between dollars and trading on cryptocurrency exchanges. It means USD Coin is equal to USD but in the cryptocurrency world. Therefore, its price is always equal to $1. However, there were sometimes during its history when the price changed a bit, but that wasn’t that much to consider. Anyhow, the USDC price has never been more than $1, and less than $0.99. That shows how stable this coin has been through all these years.
Since the USDC price never changes, you might wonder if it is a good investment. To answer this question, we need to explain how stablecoins are used and invested. They are not considered an investment to get profit, but investors usually buy stablecoins to avoid the volatility of the cryptocurrency market. If the market seems so volatile, traders and investors swap their coins with USDC and keep it stable until they pass the bad days of this market. That’s how they can keep their assets safe from losing their value.
