It seems that the current environment for the overall cryptocurrency market is improving as many cryptocurrencies are in the green zone. Just a few days ago, the global payment technology company Visa had also announced that it is going to offer Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple payments. The payment giant has revealed that it has been working jointly with authorized and regulated cryptocurrency platforms like Coinbase to give a platform between cryptocurrencies and its present global network of 61 million retailers.
According to its roadmap, users of standardized platforms such as Coinbase could use Visa Direct to convert cryptocurrencies into fiat. In its announcement, VISA confirms that the arrival of Bitcoin and stablecoins like Tether are a model of business reform that has delivered gains to customers and retailers.
