After Mastercard, Visa Announces Plan To Allow Payment Settlements Using Crypto

Visa, a global payments technology company, has announced plans to allow payment settlements on its platform using cryptocurrencies.

Settlement refers to the daily exchange of funds between Visa’s issuing and acquiring partners over VisaNet to exchange value for cleared and settled transactions.

It does not refer to the movement of funds from individual consumer accounts.

In February, MasterCard announced that it will begin to accept cryptocurrencies on its network.

Visa, in a statement yesterday, said it will use USD Coin (USDC), a stablecoin backed by the US dollar, to settle a transaction with Visa over Ethereum, one of the most actively used open-source blockchains.

Visa said it will pilot the system with Crypto.com, a cryptocurrency platform and one of its partners.

The firm said it would work with Anchorage, the first federally chartered digital asset bank and an exclusive Visa digital currency settlement partner, to launch a pilot that allows Crypto.com to send USDC to Visa to settle a portion of its obligations for the Crypto.com Visa card program.

It said it will offer the USDC settlement capability to additional partners later this year.

“Visa’s standard settlement process requires partners to settle in a traditional fiat currency, which can add cost and complexity for businesses built with digital currencies,” the statement reads.

“The ability to settle in USDC can ultimately help Crypto.com and other crypto native companies evaluate fundamentally new business models without the need for traditional fiat in their treasury and settlement workflows.

“Visa’s treasury upgrades and integration with Anchorage also strengthen Visa’s ability to directly support new central bank digital currency (CBDC) as they emerge in the future.”
