The FedNow system operated by the US Federal Reserve has incorporated the Dropp micropayments platform, which utilizes Hedera Hashgraph technology.
The support from FedNow for Dropp means that small-scale transactions involving HBAR, USDC, and US dollars can now be seamlessly executed, according to CoinGape.
