  • The Coinbase debit card debuted in the UK in April.
  • Customers will be able to use cryptocurrencies to spend at any merchant outlet that accepts Visa.

Beginning Wednesday, visa debit cards launched by Coinbase will be available in Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, and Ireland, with users holding Coinbase accounts allowed to spend cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, ethereum and litecoin for their online and store purchases. The card, which has launched as a mobile app, will connect users directly to their Coinbase accounts, while the physical contactless card can be used to withdraw cash from ATMs.
