BCB Group Partners with Circle to Answer Growing Institutional Demand

BCB Group, the global digital asset financial services group, and Circle Internet Financial Ltd., a leading global financial technology firm, announced a partnership that will see BCB implementing the full range of Circle platform functionality to improve the speed, efficiency and cost of client payments and settlement across select parts of BCB Group. This furthers BCB’s commitment to being the leading and quickest fiat on/off ramp for rapid USD Coin (USDC) entry/exit in Europe, augmented and enabled by the BCB Business Accounts service.

The partnership announced today will enable BCB’s institutional clients to use USDC for payments, clearing, and custody, helping to mitigate negative rate risk for its customers’ European exposure. With $1.1 billion in circulation as at end July 2020, USDC is believed to be the fastest-growing fiat-currency-reserved stablecoin of its kind and is backed by the CENTRE consortium, co-founded by Coinbase and Circle.
