Stablecoin Firm Circle Files For US Initial Public Offering: Reports

The USDC issuer – Circle, has been considering an Initial Public Offering (IPO) since last year. Finally, reports claim that it has confidentially filed for a US IPO.

In the United States, multiple crypto mining firms and a prominent crypto exchange, Coinbase, are already listed on stock exchanges. Consequently, this establishes a precedent demonstrating that crypto firms can transition to becoming publicly traded companies in the country.

According to Reuters, Circle has confidentially filed for a US IPO. However, the company has not disclosed the number of shares it plans to dilute or the price range of its shares.

In November 2023, BeInCrypto reported that the company was exploring the possibility of going public. Not to mention, in 2022, Circle had a valuation of $9 billion.

“The IPO is expected to take place after the Securities and Exchange Commission completes its review process, subject to market and other conditions,” the company said.
