The payment giant Mastercard does not want to get behind in payment innovations, as evidenced by the information that it wishes to offer all partners the opportunity to add crypto services.
We want to offer all of our partners the ability to more easily add crypto services to whatever it is they’re doing, said Sherri Haymond, Mastercard’s executive vice president of digital partnerships.
The news first came from CNBC daily, adding that the Mastercard payment network is cooperating with Bakkt. Bakkt is a highly respected company that helps businesses or financial institutions enter this type of digital economy.
At present, Bakkt has 250 business partners and almost 100 institutional clients.
According to the information available, the crypto services should mainly focus on BTC wallets. Credit and debit cards should also be included, with their own loyalty program based on rewards.
