The Visa debit card gives the users the power to make daily transactions using their digital assets contained in a Coinbase account. The platform changes the virtual coins into fiat currencies but at a charge.

Coinbase also clarified that it's debit card is usable at any point where Visa is accepted around the world. However, the charges vary depending on the country of use.

The use of debit cards in the crypto space has been on the rise since the start of the year. Litecoin revealed in June that it was working with Bibox Exchange as well as with Ternio, a blockchain-based firm and will introduce a crypto debit card in the near future. Similarly, in June, Crypterium, crypto payment company, revealed that it had imported about 4,000 crypto debit cards after introducing its card platform, Cointelegraph reports.
