Cryptocurrency investment fund FD7 Ventures has announced its investment in BitcoinBlack, a firm that says it’s soon to offer Canada’s first bitcoin credit card.
FD7 acquired 33% of Class A voting common shares in BitcoinBlack for an undisclosed amount, according to an announcement Sunday.
Billed as “The World’s Most Exclusive Metal Black Card,” only 1,000 of the credit cards will be issued in 2021, with shipping expected around June 15.
These customers will be able to transact in bitcoin wherever Visa payment is accepted.
Prakash Chand, FD7 managing partner, said the firm invested in BitcoinBlack “because it is a big step toward the mainstream adoption of Bitcoin and crypto across Canada.”
The investment firm now plans to convert another $370 million of bitcoin into Polkadot later this month.
