Coinbase has become the first pure-play crypto company approved as a Visa Principal Member. Visa membership will enable the crypto company to improve its customer experience, making it easier to spend cryptocurrency on a daily basis.

The collaboration between Visa and Coinbase began in 2019 with the launch of a Coinbase Card in the UK. A Visa debit card allows customers to spend their crypto as easily as the money in their bank account.

Nine months later, the card became available in 29 markets, allowing customers to pay for goods including public transport with 10 cryptocurrencies. Most of the customers use a Coinbase Card in the UK, Italy, Spain, and France.
