Crypto mass adoption is happening. A job ad posted on Smartrecruiters.com site says that Visa is searching for a product manager for their Visa Crypto team.
Visa is an American global payment processor with head office in the United States. The payment processor company is one of the biggest in the world with billions in turnover every year. Like Mastercard that is testing waters in the cryptocurrency world, Visa seems to have a crypto team and are hiring more personnel to jump in the cryptocurrency train.

Moreover, they aren’t simply searching for somebody to create some blockchain products. They are looking for an individual who is enthusiast about the crossing point of payments and cryptocurrency.
The person who gets this job will be responsible to help Visa develop ‘new products for Visa to deliver to financial and technology companies looking to adopt cryptocurrency. Also, they will deal with Visa’s Roadmap for cryptocurrency opportunities. The person who is getting the position won’t be alone. They will deal with the Visa Crypto Team.
It seems that Visa is taking seriously the risk their business model might suffer in case of cryptocurrency mass adoption. They are consistently working to develop new products that use the blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies.
In the job advert Visa state:
“Visa is the best way to pay and be paid, for everyone everywhere.”
It is clear that they do not want to be left behind as the cryptocurrency and blockchain adoption is taking place everywhere.
Speaking about “Adoption”, the Q1 of 2019 year has seen the Launch of Fidelity’s crypto custody service, announcement about the launch of FaceCoin, Facebook’s coin, development of the JP Morgan stable coin, Integration of a crypto wallet in the Samsung Galaxy S10 and IBM Launched a Payment Network based on the Stellar blockchain to be used by Banks.
