FTX exchange announced that traders on the platform can now perform near-instant bank transfers across the United States using the USDC stablecoin.

FTX Exchange Links ACH and Crypto

Using traditional bank transfers for cryptocurrency transactions is considered the most painful aspect of user experience. For U.S. customers, this may soon change. 

FTX’s partnership with blockchain company Circle will support Automated Clearing House (ACH) payments using  USD Coin (USDC), a stablecoin pegged to the U.S. dollar issued by Circle. 

ACH is a financial network that processes large volumes of credit and debit transactions in batches across several U.S. banks. 

According to Circle, its application programming interface (APIs) allows developers to connect payment methods like cards and wire transfers with USDC.

This way, cryptocurrency users can seamlessly gain access to traditional banking.

FTX Exchange’s USDC-ACH payment support is available on the Ethereum and Solana blockchains. 

Plaid Will Help With KYC

Circle and FTX also collaborated with financial data transfer network Plaid to enable customer account verification. Plaid will help customers to connect their banks directly through instant KYC and make ACH payments. 

According to a press release, Plaid will not share customer details with Circle or any of its customers.

Chris McCann, General Partner at Race Capital and an investor in FTX Exchange, said the service is the perfect example of how crypto meets fintech. 

“With fintech and crypto combined – it’s possible to do same-day ACH transfers into crypto from traditional bank accounts instantly,” McCann wrote.

The service will make it easy for FTX customers to make a bank transfer and convert it into USDC for crypto trading, DeFi, or other use cases without waiting days for standard ACH transactions. 

The U.S. Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) recently allowed banking institutions to work with stablecoins and deemed public blockchains the same as other payment networks.
