BREAKING: Stablecoin firm Circle to go public in $4.5B blank-check deal

Cryptocurrency

Circle, a Goldman Sachs-backed fintech company focused on stablecoin development, has reportedly announced plans to go public.

The company said it would go public through a merger with an unnamed blank-check company in a deal that values at $4.5 billion, Reuters reported on Thursday.

Circle is the principal developer of USD Coin (USDC), the second-largest stablecoin after Tether (USDT). In late May, the company raised $440 million in private investment from an array of private equity and institutional and strategic investors.

Earlier this year, Circle co-founder and CEO Jeremy Allaire predicted that the company’s USDC is on track to surpass payments giant PayPal in terms of transacted dollar value.
