Withdraw USDC to Solana for Free from a Checking Account

We are excited to announce that Juno now supports withdrawing USDC to Solana for free directly from a checking account. This is the first-of-its kind experience that combines the lightning fast Solana blockchain with a checking account interface that millions of Americans already trust.

With this, Juno supports instant withdrawals of USDC from a checking account to Ethereum Mainnet, Layer 2 chains like Arbitrum and Optimism and now one of the top alternative Layer 1s – Solana.

Why USDC on Solana?

USDC does everything your fiat money does but only better. Send money to a friend, get your paycheck, pay bills, shop with Solana Pay — all of it without being held back by banks. In the Solana ecosystem, USDC is trusted by millions of users across 150+ countries. Over 5 Billion USDC is in circulation already on the Solana blockchain.

1. Log in to your Juno account from your phone or PC

2. Enter the USDC amount you want to bridge to Solana

3. Enter your Solana address and it’s done!
