Euro coin: Regulated

Circle claim that, “Euro Coin is a regulated, euro-backed stablecoin issued under the same full-reserve model and built on the same pillars of trust, transparency, and security that have made USDC one of the world’s most trusted digital currencies. The launch of Euro Coin aims to further Circle’s successful work in driving the frictionless exchange of financial value and bridging crypto-native and traditional financial services.”
