MasterCard and Visa delay plans for cryptocurrency implementation
According to a report from Reuters, the world’s largest payment processor companies, Visa and Mastercard, are pushing back the launch of products and services related to crypto, until market conditions and the regulatory environment improve. Visa and Mastercard already have a card issued in partnership with the cryptocurrency exchange Binance, and it offers a fiat-to-cryptocurrency gateway for Binance users.
Anyhow, companies shared concerns about the future of cryptocurrency regulation in a midst of the recent collapse of large players in the crypto industry, such as the FTX. A hard year for crypto companies, pushed Visa and MasterCard to delay the proposed partnerships and decide the way forward after a clearer regulation perspective is established.
