Circle Invest Adds Monero Functionality

Circle Invest Adds Monero Functionality

Investing app Circle Invest has announced that it is adding Monero (XMR) to its list of supported cryptocurrencies. Currently, it includes functionality for Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Litecoin (LTC), and Zcash (ZEC). Circle allows for instant buying and selling directly connected to user bank accounts.

Monero has a market cap of USD 3.75 billion as of this writing, and is unique from Bitcoin in that it uses the CryptoNote protocol, which obfuscates sender, recipient, and transaction amounts. This makes Monero virtually untraceable, and is a preferred cryptocurrency when anonymity is the priority.

Circle was founded in 2013 and since that time has become one of the most popular places to buy and sell cryptocurrency. The company trades over USD 2 billion of cryptocurrency per month, providing excellent liquidity for traders and investors. Circle Invest doesn’t charge any commissions on investments, making it much more attractive than investing in stocks which almost always requires paying a broker commission. There is a 1.5-2% spread between buy and sell prices on Circle Invest, which is how it makes money, but such a spread is completely normal for a cryptocurrency exchange.

A caveat of Circle Invest is that users can’t withdraw their coins into personal wallets. Instead, they must keep coins in the Circle Invest wallet, and as cryptocurrency prices fluctuate their USD equivalent balance changes. The user can sell their coins at any time for USD which is directly deposited into their bank.

Generally, it is best to move coins into a personal wallet when investing in cryptocurrency, to ensure that coins are fully in possession and secure. However, this makes selling much slower than when using Circle Invest as it takes times to send cryptocurrency from its wallet to an exchange. Also, when buying cryptocurrency from an exchange that allows users to withdraw coins, it generally costs at least 5% of fees, on top of the spread between buy and sell prices, resulting in significantly more costs than when using Circle Invest.

Circle Invest is expected to add even more cryptocurrencies and digital assets in the future in its quest to become the top cryptocurrency investment platform.
