Binance to finalize acquisition of Swipe, paving for CEO exit By Cointelegraph




Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, announced Thursday that it will acquire the remaining outstanding shares of Swipe, a prominent crypto Visa (NYSE:) card provider. Users of Binance will be able to spend their coins at over 70 million locations worldwide as a result of the acquisition.

On July 6, 2020, Binance initially announced the purchase of a majority stake in Swipe, stating that the new collaboration would help to further advance cryptocurrency adoption by bridging fiat and digital assets. Binance’s acquisition of Swipe will allow it to compete with other retail crypto providers like PayPal (NASDAQ:) and Mastercard (NYSE:) that provide similar cryptocurrency-related services.
