Helping the country to combat Problems caused by hyperinflation
Circle will distribute USDC stablecoins among the medical workers of the Republic of Venezuela. The company believes that this move will provide much relief to Venezuela helping the country in combating problems caused by the hyperinflation crisis out there. As per the claim of Circle, it is the first time that a stablecoin is being used for delivering aid to a foreign country.
The company has said that it has developed an “aid disbursement pipeline” for this purpose. As the company stated:
“We were able to put in place an aid disbursement pipeline that leveraged the power of USDC – dollar-backed, open, internet-based digital currency payments – to bypass the controls imposed by Maduro over the domestic financial system and put millions of dollars of funds into the hands of people fighting for the health and safety of the people of Venezuela.”
