Embracing Cryptocurrency Payments
The clients can round-up debit card purchases in bitcoin as well as buy and sell Bitcoin and Ethereum. The company plans on expanding on these services by bringing on board several other cryptocurrencies.
The cryptocurrency custody services and transactions come from its partnership with Zero Hash LLC and Zero Hash Liquidity Services LLC. With Zero Hash services, customers can own digital currencies in a secure environment.
In a press release, the co-founder and CEO of MoneyLion, Dee Choubey, said this cryptocurrency service is a way of advancing its mission of providing greater financial access to its customers. He applauded the growing digital currency market, and the MoneyLion customers will explore this field.
