Mastercard began bringing crypto onto its network in February last year. The company is focusing on developing products and services around cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, and central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).
In January, Mastercard partnered with cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase to make non-fungible tokens (NFTs) more accessible to everyone. Customers will be able to use their Mastercard cards to make purchases on Coinbase’s coming NFT marketplace.
