Circle is a consumer Internet company focused on transforming the world economy with secure, simple, and less costly technology for storing and using money.
We’re entering a more deeply integrated global economy in which social identities, media, communications and commerce flow freely across the planet instantly and with virtually no cost to consumers. Yet our existing infrastructure for handling money remains decades old, frustrating and limiting people and creating enormous, unnecessary taxes on our world economy.
Circle provides mobile apps aimed at enabling greater ease-of-use in online and in-person payments, enhanced security and privacy for customers, and the convenience of free, instant, global digital money transfers.
Unlike existing systems for using money which are based on closed and proprietary technology and networks, Circle is building on open Internet standards and protocols, including digital currency technologies such as Bitcoin. We believe that the world can have an Internet of Value Exchange just as we have an Internet of Media and an Internet of Information Exchange that are similarly built on open platforms and networks.
As a leadership team, we have collectively built, scaled and directed significant global companies in Internet technology and media and global finance. Circle presents a similar opportunity with the promise of transforming and improving how people use money around the world.
