Expanding USDC Access in Brazil

Stablecoins presently dominate approximately 90% of crypto transactions. Circle aims to enhance Brazil's financial ecosystem by collaborating with innovative partners to democratize access to digital dollars through USDC.

“Since 2017, BTG Pactual has been at the forefront of financial market innovations, actively participating in the crypto space. Our commitment to innovation led us to create Mynt, our own Crypto trading platform. We are proud to be the first bank to issue a security token and a USD stablecoin in the world and also the first bitcoin fund by a financial institution in Brazil,” said André Portilho, Head Digital Assets at BTG Pactual.
