Binance has added support for credit card payments on its official wallet platform Trust Wallet.
According to the official announcement, the leading crypto exchange has partnered with the Israeli payment processing company Simplex to enable the direct purchase of digital assets using credit cards. Both firms first joined hands in January this year to bring similar payment support on Binance’s flagship crypto exchange.
Along with the credit card support, the platform has added support for XRP storage as well. Trust Wallet users can also store BTC, BCH, LTC, and ETH on the platform.
Commenting on this development, Viktor Radchenko, founder of Trust Wallet, said: “We want to increase access to crypto and decentralized applications for all users. Adding credit card payments is one piece to furthering cryptocurrency adoption and realizing our larger vision in helping to bring the freedom of money, and we will continue to integrate more blockchains and features to Trust.”

In July last year, Binance acquired Trust Wallet to jump into the business of crypto storage. At that time, the wallet platform only supported Ethereum and ERC-20; however, since then, Binance has extended support to 17 blockchains and “hundreds of DApps via its Web3 browser.”
Binance has long maintained its status of the leading crypto exchange in terms of handling the daily trading volume. According to CoinMarketCap.com, the exchange registered over a billion dollars worth of trades in the last 24-hours.
Preparing for the DEX Launch
Last month, the crypto exchange launched the public test network of its much anticipated decentralized crypto exchange called Binance DEX. The exchange has also decided to make Trust Wallet the native wallet platform for the upcoming peer-to-peer exchange platform.
Besides dominating the crypto trading sector, Binance is also pushing to host token sales on its native Binance Launchpad. The platform has recently hosted two successful token sales – one for BitTorrent token and the other for Fetch.AI.
