Mass Acceptance of Bitcoin. How to Make Cryptocurrencies and Credit Cards Familiar with Each Other

Despite the growing number of crypo wallets and transactions, Bitcoin remains a niche product. To become a popular means of payment, it must be accepted by large trading networks and payment systems. Widespread use of Bitcoins depends on the ability of people to pay their bills and purchases in cryptocurrencies.

This means that we need to combine Bitcoin and credit cards. Using cryptocurrencies based on card infrastructure, users will have an access to nearly 30 million retail outlets around the world.

Wirex Limited founder Pavel Matveev, who will speak at Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Prague, will cover this topic.

The title of his report is “Using the card infrastructure as rails for bitcoin adoption.”

Pavel Matveev’s speech will provide an answer to this and other questions on May 19 in Prague.

Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Prague – 19 May 2016, Prague.
