Coinbase plans to launch its Visa-powered crypto debit card. It will offer crypto payments, A.T.M. cash withdrawals, and up to 4% rewards on specific tokens. For the uninformed, Coinbase was the first crypto firm to receive Visa’s principal membership status. This supports Coinbase to eliminate middleman costs and complications when it issues branded debit cards.
