Circle is a consumer finance company focused on transforming the world economy with secure, simple, and less costly technology for storing and using money. Circle is building a suite of products that enable greater ease-of-use in online and in-person payments, enhanced security and privacy for consumers, and the convenience of free, instant, global digital money transfers.
We strongly believe that open source and standards are the foundation for a more deeply integrated world economy, driven by the Internet, where communications and commerce flow freely across borders, and our platform is built upon open standards and open protocols, such as Bitcoin. Circle was founded in 2013 by Internet entrepreneur Jeremy Allaire and is backed by $26 million in venture capital from leading investors, including Jim Breyer, Accel Partners, General Catalyst Partners, and Oak Investment Partners.
