    Visa to pilot retail crypto trading service with Black-focused First Boulevard bank

    Calling itself the ‘bridge between digital currencies’ and merchants,’ Visa said it aims to ‘level the playing field when it comes to access to new technologies’

    Payment processing behemoth Visa has partnered with First Boulevard, an online bank focused on financial empowerment in the Black community, to test a new cryptocurrency offering for retail customers. During the test, Visa will attempt to determine how it can facilitate access to crypto assets and blockchain by financial institutions that lack purpose-built infrastructures.
