Through Circle Account, business holders can pay or receive USDC on eight different blockchains: Ethereum, Algorand, Solana, Stellar, Tron, Hedera, Avalanche and Flow.

A Circle spokesperson said that:

“Some drivers for USDC growth are increased payment use cases, cross-border transactions and the adoption of assets like USDC as a “flight to safety,” especially in countries where the local currency is suffering from a valuation loss.”

Fintech company Circle Internet Financial has revamped its merger agreement with Concord Acquisition Corp (NYSE: CND) through a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), doubling its valuation to $9 billion from the $4.5 billion were initially announced in July 2021.
