This acquisition will strengthen Circle’s role in the Web3 sector. It will open up a wide range of enterprise suites and developer services for those creating on the USDC stablecoin. USDC is the second-largest stablecoin, and it is backed by real assets. With calls for stablecoin regulations increasing, the adoption of USDC could soar if it checks all the boxes on regulatory compliance.

Cybavo was founded in 2018. In 2021, it secured $4 million through a seed funding round. The co-founder and CEO of Cybavo, Paul Fan, noted that the upcoming acquisition was strategic for the company as it would foster expansion into consumer and enterprise applications.

“Circle and CYBAVO share similar operating principles and values, and we are aligned in the belief that the market for Web3 apps will ‘cross the chasm’ over the next few years, expanding into major consumer and enterprise-scale applications. Today’s news and the future of what we build with Circle will bring the power of the global crypto economy to everyone everywhere.”
