With Crypto.com constantly striving to perfect its products and services to provide the best user experience, the crypto company recently unveiled a new feature for both its App and Exchange users to enjoy.

Global USD deposits now live on Crypto.com

Since June 28, direct global USD deposits from bank accounts to Crypto.com’s App and Exchange have been enabled. This is made possible through the company’s partnership with Circle. Together, Crypto.com and Circle strive to address some of the barriers in the industry and facilitate fiat transfers in and out of crypto platforms through global USD deposits.

Users can now transfer USD from their bank account to Crypto.com App and Crypto.com Exchange and receive funds in USD Coin (USDC) at a 1:1 ratio. Furthermore, the ability to withdraw USDC and receive cash back in bank accounts will be made available in the future. 

With global USD deposits, the transaction may take 3-6 business days to be reflected in a user’s USDC wallet. Furthermore, the steps to follow to set up USD global deposits on Crypto.com App and Crypto.com Exchange App are slightly different.
