crypto liquidity

Optimize cash and liquidity

Allocate excess funds into short-term interest rate** products that are fully secured with Bitcoin and built entirely on USDC. Funds in Circle Yield* are overcollateralized, and all collateral is kept safe with BitGo, a third-party custodian with more than 400 institutional clients, for added principal protection. Our partner is Genesis Global Capital, a full-service digital asset trading firm.****
global transactions platform

Reach new users globally with faster, cheaper transactions

Position yourself to capitalize on the explosive growth in digital currency usage by both businesses and consumers as they embrace tomorrow today. Expand your reach beyond borders to the underbanked and people who prefer to transact in digital currencies. By offering your services in USDC, you are taking advantage of a new form of money that moves just like other digital content — at the speed of the internet, and far less expensively than traditional payment systems — while retaining a stable value.

Trust, transparency & compliance

USDC is fully backed by cash and short-dated U.S. government obligations, so that it is always redeemable 1:1 for U.S. dollars. Each month, we publish attestation reports by Grant Thornton regarding the reserve balances backing USDC. We are also a licensed money transmitter in 46 U.S. states, plus Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico.
