Nubank and Circle partner to bring USDC access to Brazilian customers

Wednesday 6 December 2023 14:57 CET | News

Brazil-based financial services platform Nubank has partnered with fintech Circle to increase access to the Digital Dollar for Brazilians.


Initially, USDC support will be introduced through Nubank Cripto, allowing Brazilian users to purchase and hold digital dollars. Subsequent integration with Nubank's extensive digital banking platforms holds the promise of offering customers the advantages of blockchain-driven financial services facilitated by USDC.

Nubank has partnered with fintech Circle to increase access to the Digital Dollar for Brazilians.

USDC is fully reserved with cash and cash equivalent assets and is always redeemable 1:1 for US dollars, providing a stable, regulated store of value that protects against inflation and supports a wide array of digital financial use cases.

Circle’s officials have observed high demand for dollar access in Latin America, particularly in Brazil, where digital currency usage and adoption are at a high level. The collaboration with Nubank represents an important step in expanding the global influence of USDC and a significant stride towards constructing the new internet financial system.

True to the spirit of both companies’ missions, the partnership includes mutual contributions to educational campaigns aimed at spreading knowledge about USDC in the Brazilian market, establishing it as a secure, cost-efficient, and transparent method for accessing and transacting in digital dollars. Nubank Cripto's robust platform incorporates educational content about digital currencies to empower users to make informed financial decisions.

Representatives from Nubank said that the integration of USDC opens up great opportunities not only for customers interested in having this digital dollar in their portfolio. Through this offering and the characteristics of Circle’s USDC, they are considering future possibilities to integrate Nubank Cripto with other financial services available in their app.
