Shroder hinted that a Mastercard product would be launched to allow Brazilians, like those in Argentina, to use cryptocurrencies to make payments using their debit cards. He elaborated on this:
The product has been very well received in Argentina so far, we have seen the first signs. We are evaluating what the next markets will be… Brazil remains the best market to sell this product due to the importance of Binance and the enormous size of its Brazilian market.
