Experience the power of Polygon USDC
Polygon is a leading ‘layer 2’ scaling solution for Ethereum, which boasts the largest developer ecosystem and deepest liquidity across blockchains. Polygon built the Polygon Bridge to enable users to bring digital assets from Ethereum, such as USDC, over to Polygon to benefit from reduced transaction costs and faster settlement times. Polygon USDC enables people and businesses to participate in the innovative Polygon ecosystem of over 19,000 dApps and transact with over 2.7 million monthly active users1.

Once you’re approved for a Circle Account, you can deposit funds via wire transfer and Silvergate Exchange Network (SEN). All funds will settle as USDC in your Circle Account.

2As a bridged version of USDC, Polygon USDC is not directly redeemable for U.S. dollars; it must be ‘unbridged’ to be redeemed for U.S. dollars. When a Circle Account customer requests a withdrawal of U.S. dollars, Circle will automate the process of unbridging Polygon USDC back to Ethereum USDC, and redeem Ethereum USDC for U.S. dollars. This unbridging and redemption process is abstracted away from the customer and comes at no additional cost.
