Visa Grants Coinbase Power To Issue Bitcoin Debit Cards

Visa has officially granted its principal membership to a cryptocurrency company for the first time. Awarded to Coinbase in December, but not revealed to the public until today, the membership cuts out a crucial, and expensive middleman from the process of issuing a debit card that lets users spend their cryptocurrency.

Perhaps even more importantly though, the principal membership makes Coinbase the first cryptocurrency company with the power to issue debit cards for OTHERS, including other cryptocurrency companies.
