He added that The Patricia Card also enables the user to carry out instant transactions with no delay or network issues, saying the users can partake via their Patricia wallet, which enables them to store their bitcoins, save cash and as well transfer to any wallet both within and outside the eco-system.

“Our intention is to leverage its insights and  customer-centric services, engage new customers, and reach new markets and segments.”

This he said would be  in addition to its commitment to financial inclusion, focused-based product development, and helping to create solutions that enable a more inclusive economy.

“The thing about vision is that it should be ambitious and futuristic, but achievable. We understand that payments won’t (and can’t) change overnight and that there will be a long transitional phase before the world starts to fully transact in digital currencies.

That’s why we combine digital infrastructure with existing card processing and banking infrastructure. This is a necessary step to drive the mass adoption of digital cryptocurrencies,” Agbodje said.
