In the meantime, Visa, during its earnings call for the period ended March 31, 2021, expressed its commitment to the crypto space and revealed that the company considers two market segments in the crypto space.
Bitcoin is one of them, which he described as “primarily” an asset held by people. “We kind of think of them as the digital gold,” he continued.
“Then there are digital currencies, including central bank digital currencies [CBDCs] and stablecoins that are directly backed by existing fiat currencies.”
Bitcoin however gained 2.54% in the early hours of Monday as it traded at $58,060 with the total crypto market capitalisation gaining to stand at $2.21 trillion.
