Mastercard has partnered with three leading cryptocurrency providers in the Asia-Pacific region: Singapore’s Amber Group, Australia’s Coinjar, and Thailand’s Bitkub. The partnership aims to introduce a dedicated MasterCard payment card for cryptocurrencies.
Safdar Khan, President of Mastercard’s Emerging Markets Southeast Asia Division, said:
In addition to exchanging cryptocurrencies for cash, crypto reward cards are also offered. Here, users can collect points and immediately redeem them for cryptocurrencies.
This program is part of MasterCard’s crypto strategy to benefit customers, businesses and enterprises by offering more options for cryptocurrency transactions.
