Cloud-based digital money platform Uphold is planning to launch a Bitcoin card in Europe with the acquisition of card issuer Optimus Cards UK Limited. The digital money platform will begin to roll-out the crypto-enabled debit cards starting from April 2021. The new crypto card by Uphold will also include some of its supported assets like the US equities, carbon credits, and precious metals.

JP Thieriot, Uphold CEO, expressed his excitement over the new acquisition. He said “We’re delighted to have acquired an issuer with such a technically-sophisticate platform and a full EMI license. These attributes will shortly allow us to issue multi-asset, crypto-enabled debit cards across the U.K. and Europe.”
