USD Coin experienced a turnover rate of about 0.01% over the past week, which means that is the percent of its available money supply that is traded daily. Its turnover rate is more than approximately 4.21% of the cryptocurrencies in our index, so it’s well below average; this coin may be hard to get into and out of, and thus is suitable only for those interested in holding and exiting slowly and patiently.

This could indicate that the coin may be on track to getting and sustaining actual usage.

USD Coin currently has 2 public repos on GitHub, with the oldest one clocking in at 1.75 years young. The last recorded update to its public repositories was within the past week which is not bad, as the coin is still being updated routinely. USD Coin’s public repositories collectively have a total of 97 watchers, which is below average relative to its peers; that’s more than only 28 % of the 100 similar coins in our index. The coin has 3 issues reported across its public repositories. In comparison to the number of watchers it has, though, its open issues count doesn’t seem like something to worry about. To put the situation in context, USD Coin has a better issue/watcher ratio on its GitHub than 81% of similar coins we’re tracking.
