Circle Yield Early Access Update: Strong Demand and Rapid Growth

Rachel Mayer Rachel Mayer October 20, 2021

We’re excited to share that since onboarding our first customers into Circle Yield in July, we’ve seen total deposits increase by nearly 200%. Current Circle Yield customers include leading family offices, venture capital firms, crypto partners and corporate treasurers across multiple industries. As of October 20, 2021, Circle Yield* offers qualified businesses up to 7%** APY on idle capital reserves and is available with terms ranging from 1-12 months across a full yield curve.  

Market trends are driving robust and growing demand for dollar digital currency lending services, with the total supply of USDC increasing more than 1,100% in the past year as investors hunt for returns in DeFi and other crypto-related markets. Meanwhile, blockchain data shows that stablecoin loans have increased at an annualized rate of more than 190% in 2021, to a total of nearly $20 billion outstanding today. 

Circle Yield is fully secured with Bitcoin collateral, offering businesses one of the easiest and most secure routes into crypto lending. Customers also benefit from a dedicated team of professionals who help provide smooth onboarding and continuous support throughout the life of the loan.

Yield is currently available to qualified businesses in the US and Switzerland*, with availability in additional countries expected to be rolling out soon.
