Digital dollars for global prosperity
We believe in a future where digital dollars work securely around the world to create a more prosperous global economy for everyone.
If you could take what we think of as money, make it digital and available on the internet, then that would dramatically change the way we use money and open up opportunity around the world. That’s the idea behind Circle.”
We created USDC, a digital currency backed by the US dollar and always redeemable 1:1. We work closely with regulators to ensure our digital dollar guides and surpasses the standards for stablecoins. By doing this, USDC has the potential to change how money moves around the world.
