posted about 2 months ago
Coinbase, the San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange, is now a "Visa Principal" member, making the firm the "first pure-play crypto company” approved by the credit card giant. This is expected to allow Coinbase to “offer more features for Coinbase Card customers; from additional services to support in more markets..."

Coinbase launched the Coinbase Card in the UK in 2019. The debit card allows users to spend cryptocurrency as cash everywhere Visa is accepted. The card has since been made available in 29 markets with 10 different supported cryptocurrencies.
