According to the CEO of Visa, Al Kelly, the popular company Visa is mapping the outline of a plan that has to do with the support of buying Bitcoin on Visa credentials. The announcement of the CEO appeared following the Mastercard publication of its cryptocurrency plans in February.
Through his talk at ‘Fortune’s Leadership Next’ podcast, Kelly stated that Visa is intending to operate with Bitcoin wallets. In February 2021, Visa published a partnership with First Boulevard. First Boulevard is a digitally native neobank concentrated on developing generational wealth for the Black community, to stimulate the company’s attempts to join the cryptocurrency market. Kelly stated “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”.

Mastercard, the opponent of Visa, published near the beginning of this year that the company is intending to allow Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency assets in 2021.

Because of the new wave in the retail and institutional request for Bitcoin, many financial firms globally have begun to work on plans on how to accept  BTC as a payment system.

Tesla, the world’s biggest electric-car producer, lately published its $1.5 billion stakes in Bitcoin and stated that the company is intending to accept BTC as a method of payment for its products.

CoinFlip, one of the head Bitcoin ATM providers in the US, has extended its network significantly in the last few months because of a wave in demand. The world’s biggest cryptocurrency recorded an all-time top of $61,000 last Sunday.
