Visa is preparing to integrate BTC payments on its platform, according to a statement issued by the company CEO Al Kelly during a recent podcast. Kelly also revealed that VISA plans on working with BTC wallets.
Kelly also issued the followed official statement:
“One is to enable the purchase of bitcoin on Visa credentials. And secondly, working with bitcoin wallets to allow the bitcoin to be translated into a fiat currency and therefore immediately be able to be used at any of the 70 million places around the world where Visa is accepted,”
These plans were revealed only a month after Mastercard, which is VISA’s biggest competitor, revealed that they plan on supporting cryptos this year as well.

I think it is a matter of time before banks begin operating with Bitcoin as well.
