The payments giant highlighted how it is “assisting banks manage the use of digital currencies,” noting that it is “helping banks handle the adoption of digital currencies.”
Mastercard’s digital currency consultancy services for banks and merchants include everything from early-stage education, risk assessments, and bank-wide crypto and NFT strategy formulation to crypto cards and crypto loyalty programme design.

Furthermore, the payments firm “has assisted fintechs in expanding into new markets by assisting them with go-to-market planning and commercialization methods.”
In February of last year, Mastercard began integrating cryptocurrency onto its network. The company concentrates on producing cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, and central bank digital currencies-related products and services (CBDCs).
Mastercard and cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase teamed in January to make non-fungible tokens (NFTs) more accessible to the general public. As a result, customers will be able to purchase Coinbase’s upcoming NFT marketplace using their Mastercard cards.
