On Tuesday, the financial technology company Checkout.com announced that it will allow merchant settlements using the stablecoin USDC via a partnership with the crypto firm Fireblocks. Checkout.com further detailed that in a beta test with select clients, the company settled $300 million in transaction volume leveraging the USDC stablecoin.
“Stablecoins started as a fiat-denominated asset used by crypto traders to easily move in and out of more volatile crypto assets, but we believe they will also play a fundamental role in improving the underlying payment landscape,” Houlgrave explained. “The fact that we’re the first full-stack payments provider to successfully pilot an end-to-end solution with weekend merchant-side settlement capability is testament to our commitment to crypto.”
