You can now fund your holidays abroad to trips on public transport, using a Coinbase Card. Coinbase has become the first pure-play crypto company to be approved as a Visa principal member. This, says the company, will help them improve the customer experience, making it easier to spend cryptocurrency in everyday situations.
In 2019 Coinbase launched the Coinbase Card in the UK, a Visa debit card that allows customers to spend their crypto as easily as the money in their bank account. Nine months later, Coinbase Card is available to customers in 29 markets who are able to spend 10 cryptocurrencies in millions of merchant locations.
Over half of customers who’ve signed up to Coinbase Card use it regularly, with its usage peaking in the UK, followed closely by Italy, Spain, and France.
