Visa to enable Crypto purchases with Credit Card

The payments giant hinted that the company might soon initiate the facility to make crypto purchases via credit cards. During the interview, Kelly said:

“We’re trying to do two things. One is to enable the purchase of bitcoin on Visa credentials. And secondly, working with bitcoin wallets to allow the bitcoin to be translated into a fiat currency and therefore immediately be able to be used at any of the 70 million places around the world where Visa is accepted.”

Kelly further noted that cryptocurrencies could potentially become the new payment vehicles, especially in emerging markets. On the other hand, Visa has been putting an increasing focus on the use of stablecoins.
