Gate Group, the company behind the popular exchange Gate.io, plans to launch a European crypto debit card to expand its reach to European countries. Users can seamlessly convert and spend their crypto assets with the card in everyday purchases.
One of the factors that push adoption in the crypto space is continuous developments. As each firm operating in the sector expands its reach to different countries, more users will join the industry, increasing knowledge and eventual adoption.

While writing about the latest development, the Gate Group Founder and CEO, Dr. Lin Han, stated that the card would enable Gate.io users to make easy crypto payments to thousands of merchants worldwide. He went further to state that the card bridges the gap between crypto and the everyday lives of its users, promoting broader financial inclusion for them.
The Head of Crypto at Visa, Cuy Sheffield, stated that Visa aims to link the crypto ecosystem to its global network of merchants and financial institutions.
