Wirex and Visa partnership

Thus, Wirex is already a primary participant in Visa’s European network. In practice, this means that at Visa’s current 61 million European merchants, we can now pay with Wirex cards, i.e. buying with cryptocurrencies. Besides, Wirex itself may issue new cards under the Visa name.

The spread of cryptocurrencies in the community is made by many depending on how easy it will be to pay with them. Traditionally, it is quite difficult, as only a few shops and merchants install their own wallet program. We barely can pay with a direct, P2P cryptocurrency transaction. But there are indications that this will not be necessary for the time being, as the card infrastructure already exists. Simply, you have to do is assign a card to your wallets.
