  • By embracing USDC, enterprises gain access to a widely connected ecosystem that spans the globe, enabling efficient cross-border transactions.
  • ​​For Airtm’s community, this transition means greater transparency, portability and usability.

Airtm, the world’s most connected digital dollar account, primarily based in LatAm, South Asia, and Africa, is announcing the launch of its USDC-powered payment service for global businesses and transition to USDC as the digital currency for its global retail account. 

USDC is a digital dollar, also known as a stablecoin, that is available 24/7. As a fully reserved digital currency, USDC is always redeemable 1:1 for US dollars. Offering access to USDC aims to provide enterprises with unparalleled access to the cutting-edge infrastructure of Web 3.0 for cross-border payments. Furthermore, the Stellar network ensures fast and low-cost cross-border payments.

Airtm’s newly launched enterprise payment service enables businesses to instantly distribute, or collect, payments from over 100 countries without needing foreign exchange or local banking connections. Payments are sent in USDC over Stellar’s decentralized network to each receiver’s Airtm wallet, offering its users more than 400 local payment connections. As part of this launch, existing businesses using Circle’s infrastructure for USDC access can seamlessly fund payouts and pay-ins on Airtm. 

Airtm’s global community of USDC wallet users, referred to as digital entrepreneurs, have access to more than 400 payment rails for adding funds and withdrawing funds locally, including through Airtm’s proprietary automated peer-to-peer marketplace. Thanks to that, businesses can collect or distribute payments instantly for more than 100 markets, including micro-payments as little as $.10.

On average, Airtm can facilitate transactions between enterprises and global wallet holders within 6 minutes and for under 5% fee end-to-end.

“Airtm’s vision is not just to create technology, but to ignite an economy. An economy where enterprises create earnings opportunities, where individuals can fulfill the demand for their value creation, and where financially independent people are able to thrive”, added Ruben Galindo, Airtm’s CEO.
