Mastercard, a leader in global payments, announced on October 17 that it will introduce the Crypto Source program to assist financial institutions in offering cryptocurrency trading services. 

Banks that promote widespread cryptocurrency usage will use Mastercard to manage regulatory compliance and security. According to a press release on Monday, the Crypto Source initiative would use Mastercard to function as a bridge across banks and the cryptocurrency trading platform Paxos to encourage the widespread use of cryptocurrencies. The initiative enables financial institutions to provide customers with cryptocurrency trading services.

The industry leader in payments will take care of all the security and regulatory compliance for banks that previously forced financial institutions to steer clear of crypto assets. Although some consumers have expressed skepticism toward cryptocurrencies, others are looking for safe entry points.

Additionally, Mastercard Crypto Secure, a complimentary service, will boost security and help card companies comply with regulations.
