Crypto.com Now on More Payment Apps
As part of its mission to bridge the gap between the traditional financial ecosystem and foster financial inclusion through blockchain-based virtual currencies, Crypto.com’s has now made it possible for U.S. residents to hold its MCO Visa card to pay with their digital assets and fiat currencies on more platforms.
MCO Visa Card Now Supported on Apple, Google Play, and Other Platforms
As stated in its blog post, its U.S.-based customers can now make payments at supported merchants, as well as online stores with their MCO Visa Cards on their mobile devices in a secure manner, through Apple, Google or Samsung Pay apps.
