Binance now allows adding Visa cards directly on its platform to buy crypto, including XRP

Cryptocurrency exchange Binance now has an option to directly add Visa debit and credit cards on its platform.

The feature allows buying four cryptocurrencies - bitcoin (BTC), ether (ETH), Binance’s native token (BNB) and XRP - directly with Visa cards, according to an announcement Thursday.

The exchange already supports the buying of crypto via debit and credit cards through third-party payment processors, such as Simplex. This option is a direct integration.

At present, Visa cards issued within the 31 countries of the European Economic Area are supported, including the U.K., Germany, France, Greece, and Malta. Accordingly, two fiat currencies - euro (EUR) and British pound (GBP) - are supported.

Binance said support for Mastercard cards and additional currencies will be added “in the near future.”
