Visa growing crypto arm
Despite holding a market capitalisation of more than US$500 billion, the payments behemoth is trying to reposition itself amid fintech disruptions and the rapidly digitizing world.
The strategy extends to cryptocurrency. In recent years, it has been establishing relationships with crypto entities Coinbase, Circle, and FTX, among others, with the goal to make it easier for users of those platforms to buy products and services with their crypto. This also gives Visa new revenue opportunities.
In July, Visa revealed that it has partnered with no less than 50 crypto platforms via card programs that “make it easy to convert and spend digital currency at 70 million merchants worldwide.”
What’s more, the company revealed in the first half of this year, that it had facilitated more than US$1 billion in transactions via crypto-linked Visa cards.
Earlier this year, Visa doubled down on crypto business unit with five strategic hires and placements.
