According to a post on the company's blog on February 20, Circle will immediately stop creating new USDC tokens on the Tron blockchain and phase out existing support for the network.

Circle is encouraging Circle retail users and non-Circle customers to transfer their Tron-based USDCs to an exchange that supports the token on a different blockchain.

The company has not provided a specific reason for the discontinuation of support for Tron, stating that it regularly evaluates the suitability of different blockchains as part of its risk management process.
