We’re a global crypto finance company on a mission to make it possible for anyone, anywhere to help change the global economy.
Circle was founded in 2013 because we believed money should work like the internet — open, secure, free, everywhere. Today, we offer four products. Circle Invest makes it easy to invest in crypto even if you’ve never invested in crypto. With Circle Pay you can send money like a text — across the table or the ocean. Our OTC crypto desk Circle Trade moves over $2B each month. And our addition of Poloniex welcomes one of the world’s largest crypto exchanges.
Unlike existing systems that are closed and proprietary, we use open standards and protocols to build our products.
Circle is backed by $140 million in venture capital from investors including Goldman Sachs, IDG Capital Partners, Breyer Capital, Accel Partners, General Catalyst Partners, Baidu, CICC Alpha, EverBright, WangXiang and CreditEase.
