# Circle Accounts API
The Accounts API allows you to easily create and host digital wallets for your customers, and manage transfers of funds across accounts- whether they are within the Circle platform, or in / out of the platform via on-chain [USDC](🔗), EUROC, BTC, and ETH connectivity.
Our APIs abstract the complexity inherent to custody and security of digital assets, as well as blockchain address management and transaction fees.
With the Accounts API you can:
Embed US Dollar, Euro, BTC, and ETH denominated digital balances into your product or service without dealing with the complexity of legacy bank account structures.
Manage account infrastructure for your customers including seamless transfer of funds, across hosted accounts or via on-chain connectivity.
Take [USDC](🔗), EUROC, BTC, and ETH payments with minimum cost and no exposure to reversals.
All of that for customers across 150+ countries, and based on Circle's extensive experience supporting over 10 million digital account customers, $5B in digital asset custody and hundreds of billions of dollars in transactions.
