The Circle Account is designed to make it easy for businesses and organizations to operate seamlessly across the Web3 ecosystem. The Circle Account allows USDC transactions to be executed between the Algorand, Avalanche, Ethereum, Flow, Hedera, Solana, Stellar, and TRON networks, in any combination, reducing the need to engage third-party exchanges or DeFi protocols to make cross-blockchain transfers. Using the Circle Account makes it easier for fast-moving organizations to take advantage of cross-chain opportunities while supported by enterprise ready custody and security.
Market makers and crypto investment firms can also deposit and withdraw USDC on any of these chains, allowing them to quickly access liquidity to take advantage of trading opportunities or support new digital asset trading pairs with exchange liquidity provided in USDC.
Multi-chain capabilities for a multi-chain world
For organizations developing Web3 applications, focusing on only a single blockchain could stall growth and adoption in the long run. A few years ago, there were a limited number of operational blockchains with active users. Now, the expansion of the cryptocurrency industry has seen a rapid rise of new competition for users and liquidity.
As businesses around the world continue to develop their Web3 strategies, priorities like lower transaction costs or faster settlement times may lead different organizations to choose different blockchain infrastructures that best suit their needs. Organizations using the Circle Account will have one of the most comprehensive means of moving funds across the multi-chain ecosystem. This allows payments to be made quickly and efficiently, without having to wait days for drawn-out procedures using traditional financial accounts and rails to move funds from one blockchain to another.
Grow with USDC
Since launching in 2018, USDC has rapidly become one of the world’s leading dollar digital currencies, with more than 49 billion USDC in circulation and more than 1.2 trillion transacted on-chain as of April 22, 2022. With an expanding ecosystem of customer use cases and new initiatives that bring USDC to merchants and retail consumers, USDC growth isn’t slowing down. Adopting USDC and the Circle Account for payments and treasury management is an easy way for Web3 businesses to access streamlined multi-chain transfers and cross-border payments to get an edge on the competition and prime their organizations for growth. Institutional accredited investors can also grow their treasury assets with access to Circle Yield* through the Circle Account, a USDC-based investment.
