Household card provider, Visa has recently announced that they are launching a blockchain-based payment platform called B2B connect. The company has behind scenes been working on the development of the project for a number of years.
An official representative from Visa detailed that B2B Connect is a solution for the delayed payment processing systems in the current financial industry. By implementing the blockchain, Visa will facilitate instant transactions while also recording them on a ledger if needs be.
It is noted that this payment method is designed for corporate clients, but its performance will be evaluated a month or two with testing, to determine if Visa will launch it on the retail level as well.
