Offering the market liquidity you need to enter and exit crypto positions quickly.

Fund your trading account faster

Transfer funds almost instantly into and out of your institutional trading accounts via Silvergate’s Exchange Network (SEN) and Signature’s SigNet platform. USDC Express is the fastest way to access USDC. You can deposit funds from your bank account into your Circle Account, automatically convert them into USDC and then send USDC to your trading wallet address — all within seconds. And you can sweep USDC from your Circle Account back into your bank account at any time, with the same speed and ease.

Trust, transparency and 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.
