Financial service provider Unbanked has partnered with MasterCard to help accelerate DeFi card issuance and crypto card adoption in Europe.
The two companies have already worked together to establish a presence in the UK and Europe. They have also forged relationships with various Web3 organizations to launch card programs designed to innovate in the payments space. Through this new initiative, Unbanked and Mastercard aim to support the issuance of cryptocurrency-powered card programs focused on simplicity, security, and consumer protection.
Unbanked previously worked with the Litecoin Foundation to launch the Litecoin Card for US residents. By partnering with Mastercard, the program will be available to members based in the UK and Europe with the aim of reaching up to 85% of the European population.
The Unbanked platform also supports Web3 businesses by helping them create personalized brand experiences for their user base. To be specific, the Unbanked API can help set up white-label card issuance programs, crypto wallets, and bank accounts, and connect them to a mobile or web interface. Additionally, the platform includes comprehensive compliance and validation systems that enable businesses to secure their users and payment systems.
