Galileo Client BitPay Launches Prepaid Mastercard in the U.S.

June 11, 2020

We’re proud to congratulate our client BitPay on its launch of the BitPay Card, the first Mastercard Prepaid card for crypto users in the United States. The card, which is powered by Galileo, enables customers to instantly convert cryptocurrency into fiat currency, which is then loaded onto the card and can be spent anywhere Mastercard debit is accepted around the world. Customers also can use their cards for purchases and to withdraw cash from ATMs.

Galileo CEO Clay Wilkes commented on the announcement saying, “We’re honored that BitPay is using Galileo’s flexible APIs to power its BitPay Card, making it easy for customers to pay for purchases through the conversion of cryptocurrency into fiat currency and spend wherever Mastercard debit cards are accepted.”

BitPay is a pioneer in bitcoin and blockchain payments. Its products enable businesses to send and receive cross-border payments, also enabling consumers to manage digital assets with the BitPay Wallet and turn digital assets into dollars with the major network branded reloadable cards. The company has offices in North America, Europe and South America.
