Coinbase Card Now Directly Linkable with Google Pay to Spend Crypto
An announcement on March 17th stated that Coinbase card users can now add it directly to their Google Pay wallets. The exchange’s card is a Visa debit card funded with crypto, enabling users to spend directly from their Coinbase accounts.
Google Pay gives the exchange’s card customers a fast, secure way to buy items using their smartphones. Additionally, the Google Pay app enables Android users to purchase things using their crypto balance in the safest way possible. Coinbase claims to be the first company to allow users to make mobile payments with their crypto balance, after the launch of Google Pay.
