Today, we are excited to announce that v1 now supports USDC (USD Coin) as collateral.

Liquidity providers can mint volatility tokens using USDC with the web app.

A few notes related to the release:

  • The Volmex smart contract system treats DAI and USDC equally internally.
  • A minor change was made to the core smart contracts to support USDC. A full audit report is available here.

Stay tuned for more developments!
