Circle is a global financial technology company that issues the stablecoins USDC and EUROC, and develops programmable wallets across various blockchains. Circle is regulated as a licensed money transmitter under US state law just like PayPal, Stripe, and Apple Pay. Circle’s financial statements are audited annually. ### Why? USDC is a digital dollar, that’s available 24/7 and moves at internet speed. USDC lives natively on the internet, and is available for users to spend regardless of borders and banking hours. Anyone with an internet connection can send, receive, and save USDC. A key feature of USDC is that it's always redeemable 1:1 for US dollars. USDC reserves are held in the management and custody of US financial institutions, including BlackRock and BNY Mellon.
