Binance Ceases Support for USDC on Tron Blockchain


Binance has announced its decision to discontinue support for USDC (USD Coin) deposits and withdrawals on the Tron blockchain, effective April 5. This move comes more than a month after Circle, the issuer of USDC terminated its USDC minting services on Tron.

Starting from 2:00 a.m. UTC on April 5, deposits of TRC20 USDC tokens will no longer be credited to users’ accounts on Binance, as stated in an official blog post by the crypto exchange. However, it’s important to note that this change solely affects USDC issued on the Tron blockchain and deposits and withdrawals of the stablecoin on other networks like Ethereum will remain unaffected.

Despite the discontinuation of support for TRC20 USDC, trading of USDC on Binance will continue without any interruptions.

Circle, the issuer of USDC, cited risk management as the primary reason for terminating USDC minting services on Tron. The company emphasized its commitment to ensuring the trustworthiness, transparency, and safety of USDC, which led to the decision to discontinue support on certain blockchains.

Although Tron’s role as a platform for USDC is diminishing, it remains the primary blockchain for USDT (Tether), the dominant stablecoin, with the majority of USDT supply still residing on the Tron network.
