Build on Circle with USDC

Circle’s digital dollar technology offers a revolutionary solution that eliminates the friction and limitations introduced by traditional payments and banks in settlements. Unlike legacy payment rails like Wire, ACH, SEPA, and Cards, Circle’s platform allows developers to programmatically move money frictionlessly over the internet 24/7.  This means that Circle’s technology enables near-instant transactions with reduced fees, enhanced security, and improved transparency.  

Circle’s platform is highly customizable and can be integrated seamlessly into existing systems, providing a flexible and efficient solution to financial transactions.  By leveraging Circle’s digital dollar technology, businesses and individuals can overcome the limitations of traditional payments and banks, streamlining their operations and increasing their bottom line.

USDC is a digital dollar, also known as a stablecoin, that’s available 24/7 and moves at internet speed. USDC lives natively on the internet, running on many of the world’s most advanced blockchains. USDC has powered more than $8.6 trillion transactions!
