“The thing about vision is that it should be ambitious and futuristic, but achievable. We understand that payments won’t (and can’t) change overnight and that there will be a long transitional phase before the world starts to fully transact in digital currencies.
That’s why we combine digital infrastructure with existing card processing and banking infrastructure. This is a necessary step to drive the mass adoption of digital cryptocurrencies.
“With the Patricia card, our users all over the world have access to cash, pay bills, make over-the-counter or inshore transactions, buy data and make subscriptions. We will allow you to spend your bitcoin, anytime, everywhere and anywhere.”
