Seven USDC wallet addresses were blacklisted on Wednesday

The Centre Consortium, the organization behind the USD Coin (USDC) stablecoin co-founded by Coinbase and Circle, blacklisted seven seemingly inactive Ethereum addresses Wednesday, data from Dune Analytics shows.

This development appears to be the first time that Centre has blacklisted USDC-containing addresses since July 2020, when Centre blacklisted an address containing more than 100,000 USDC. At the time, Centre told The Block that "it blacklisted an address in response to a request from law enforcement. While we cannot comment on the specifics of law enforcement requests, Centre complies with binding court orders that have appropriate jurisdiction over the organization."

The addresses are listed below. The Block noted their last transaction using data from the blockchain explorer Etherscan.
