Digital currencies hold potential to transform commerce and propel financial inclusion. Mastercard’s cryptocurrency perspectives, research and partnerships can make this possible.
Mastercard Start Path
From building the future of commerce with blockchain-powered solutions to addressing the needs of the underbanked and beyond, Mastercard helps fintechs accelerate the way they change the world.
This is a reset moment that demands the business community unleash the full strength of its resources and networks to create a healthier, more equitable world with a digital economy that works for everyone.
At Mastercard, we are committed to having a positive impact with every interaction – not just every transaction. That means infusing decency into everything we do, from how we treat one another within our walls and how we work to build to more inclusive digital economy beyond them.
5G will not only deliver higher speeds, lower latency and greater connectivity. It will spur invention, innovation and ultimately inclusion in ways that test the limits of what we believe to be possible.
Closing the racial wealth gap
We are helping close the racial wealth and opportunity gap for black communities across America. As a part of our journey to build an economy that works for everyone, everywhere, we are investing $500M in Black communities over the next five years.
Inclusion through action
Five years ago, Mastercard committed to bring 500 million excluded individuals into the digital economy. We achieved that goal through more than 350 innovative programs across 80 countries. So we’re doubling down on our original commitment to include another 500 million people by 2025, for a total of 1 billion individuals.
Cities are the beating hearts of nations. They are the places where people and cultures collide, expanding perspectives, powering creativity and generating new opportunities. Only by leveraging the superpower of collaboration can we ensure those opportunities are available to everyone.
