At the same time, institutional interest in crypto is increasing. The cryptocurrency’s total market cap topped $ 2 trillion in August 2021, in part thanks to firms and investment firms exploring the space. But many institutions are still on the sidelines, either because they don’t know how to invest in crypto or because they aren’t comfortable with the risks and volatility typically associated with Bitcoin and DeFi. Corporate treasurers and institutional fund managers face a unique challenge. On the one hand, they have accumulated large cash balances. On the other hand, persistently low interest rates give them very few options to generate significant returns on that cash, with 10-year treasury billsÂ¹ and 10-year corporate bonds rated AaaÂ² generating less. half of their historical average as of October 1, 2021..

Circle Yield is designed to answer all of this. This is a new investment designed to help institutions invest in the crypto lending markets without the uncertainty and opacity. It is a fixed-term investment issued under a clear regulatory framework, and it offers much higher returns than those offered by banks and many fixed income markets, with terms ranging from one month to one year. * It is also fully secure and oversized with Bitcoin, with all the guarantees held by a third-party custodian that serves over 400 institutional clients. _____________________________________
Circle Yield is built with USDC, a full reserve dollar digital currency. USDC is fully backed by cash and equivalents and short-term US Treasury bills, so it is always redeemable 1: 1 against US dollars. Each month, Circle publishes Grant Thornton attestation reports regarding USDC-backed reserve balances. The total USDC in circulation has exceeded $ 32 billion as more businesses and investors recognize the value of its stability and transparency.
Circle Yield is also attracting interest from crypto organizations, as blockchain foundations, NFT platforms and others seek to diversify their treasuries. Allocation in Circle Yield can help balance growth and security while keeping funds on the blockchain. Circle Yield’s fixed rates and clear regulatory framework may offer greater certainty over storing funds in native tokens or investing in DeFi.
