Mycelium, creators of The Default Bitcoin Wallet, have partnered with BlocPal International, a leading global fintech and blockchain technology company, to strengthen their offering of crypto-fiat features in their next generation Mycelium Wallet. The upgraded wallet will provide consumers with more options to use their crypto to transact with traditional fiat banking and payment related services. The partnership will also provide Mycelium users in the USA and Canada with a Mycelium credit card which can be loaded from their Mycelium wallet balances. Mycelium credit cards are also planned to be rolled out later to users across Europe, the United Kingdom and South America.
Mycelium is one of the world’s most established blockchain brands. The Mycelium wallet launched in 2012 and is now one of the most widely used digital wallets on the planet.

By offering more options to use crypto together with traditional fiat payment transactions and bank cards, we are able to deliver a powerful, fully integrated experience to our users.”
