It’s your money. It’s your choice what to do with it.
That has always been at the heart of our business – helping people pay safely, securely and simply, however they choose to. That’s why we’ve been exploring and innovating with digital currencies for nearly a decade. Mastercard has been investing in blockchain technology patents since at least as early as 2015. Many of the company’s patent filings are specifically directed to technologies that support digital currencies. As one of the top blockchain patent filers in the financial services industry, we’ve got a worldwide blockchain patent portfolio.
In the last year, we’ve seen just how critical digital payments are to keep the global economy going and growing, and how enthusiastically people and businesses have embraced them. Digital currencies increasingly show potential to become a part of everyday commerce, and we are committed to supporting the industry to realize the benefits of this potential to support the future of payments. The future is already here, and we’re ready for it.
