Stripe Enables USDC Payments

Online payments processor Stripe will allow businesses – beginning with Twitter – to start paying customers in USDC, a stablecoin whose value is tied to the U.S. dollar. Twitter will pilot the new option by allowing some people who charge followers for premium content to get paid in USDC over the Polygon network (which can be bridged to the Ethereum network). Stipe said it plans to add support for additional payment “rails” and payout currencies over time.

Is Stripe on its way to becoming a crypto payment gateway? If so, it’s a game changer.
