A range of prominent apps and wallets have pledged their support for Euro Coin on Avalanche. Notable participants include BENQI, Cables, Coinbase Wallet, Core, Curve, Dexalot, GMX, MetaMask, NFT-TiX, Pangolin, Platypus, Shift Markets, and Trader Joe.

Currently, Circle manages two fiat-based stablecoins—USD Coin, with a market capitalization nearing $29 billion, and Euro Coin, which currently holds a market value of approximately $48 million.
