Two years ago the cryptocurrency firm Circle announced the launch of USDC, a stablecoin pegged to the U.S. dollar. This week, Circle revealed the launch of high yield digital dollar business accounts with APY up to 10.75%.

  • On September 26, 2018, Circle and the Centre open-source consortium launched an ERC20 token called USD Coin or USDC.
  • At the time of publication, USDC is the 12th largest blockchain in terms of market capitalization with $2.8 billion circulating today. Under tether (USDT), USDC is the second-most popular stablecoin.
  • “USDC is the first of several fiat tokens Centre expects to deliver, and Circle is the first of several forthcoming,” Circle stated at launch.

  • On November 5, 2020, Circle’s official Twitter account tweeted about USDC business accounts that offer high yield returns. “Circle is planning to introduce short and medium-term high yield interest rate business accounts built entirely on USDC. Starting at 8% APY, make sure to secure a spot on the waitlist today. Restrictions will apply,” the firm tweeted.
  • The waitlist web page states: “Secure a spot on the waitlist for high yield digital dollar business accounts. Talk with us to explore short and medium-term high yield interest rate accounts built entirely on USDC so you are first in line when the service becomes available.”
  • The open term APY offer of 8.50% says that it offers no withdrawal limits and account holders can access their digital dollars at any time. A fixed term of 12-months can accrue 10.75% and six months can get 10.25%.
  • “Interest payments are paid out weekly and accrue daily” and the process is “natively integrated into your Circle Account and customizable through Circle APIs,” the company’s website details.
  • Most all cryptocurrencies like bitcoin (BTC), bitcoin cash (BCH), and ethereum (ETH) can be leveraged in high yield interest-bearing accounts through various outlets. Yet stablecoins, no matter the flavor, typically accrue much higher interest rates.
