Add Sufficiency to Asset ID 1337 (USDC) on AssetHub

USDC on AssetHub (Asset ID 1337) is not set as sufficient. Therefore, it can’t be use to pay for XCM execution when transferring the asset back from (for example) Moonbeam to AssetHub.

Was this expected? This just worsens UX and developer experience when using USDC and moving it around.

When querying api.query.assets.asset(1337) you get:

Well yes, assets don’t magically become sufficient. But I think a proposal is in the works. @otar

I understand assets don’t magically become sufficient. Moonbeam was part of the team that worked on modifying AssetHub so that sufficient assets could be used to pay XCM execution :smiley:

Nevertheless, asset ID was created on 2022-12-01, and probably Circle confirmed that they were going to use that asset ID some time ago. I was just curious on why this was not done before the official launch, as right now it significantly increases the onboarding-to-parachains friction by quite a lot.

@otar when possible if you can provide an ETA it would be great.

Thanks in advance

TWIMC: You can find the corresponding OpenGov proposal on Root track here. Thus, the ETA is now in the hands of the community and vote participation.


Thanks! Looks good. Excited to see this live!
