Web 3 is revolutionizing how we see the world, by making it better. Mastercard has implemented an innovative web3 solution, in an effort to increase the trust in blockchain transactions. During the just concluded Consensus23, Mastercard unveiled the Crypto credential partnership. Mastercard Partnered with Polygon (MATIC) to Create Web3 Incubator for Digital Creators earlier this year and most recently with Aptos Lab dubbed “Solana killer”. It is worth noting that the Aptos Lab Crypto wallet platform is the company in charge of L1 blockchain Aptos (APT).
According to a tweet shared by the Aptos Team on their official Twitter page. They shared the news that they are partnering with an international payment operator, joining the board of the Crypto wallets to be part of the Mastercard Crypto credential partnership.

As stated by the Aptos executives, the Crypto credential program will be helpful for various everyday life applications on things like tickets, lottery games, online identity, and more. Other wallets in the program include Polygon, Avalanche, Solana, and so on.
Mastercard Increases Web3 Exposure
Mastercard is not new in the Web3 industry, this is because the payment giant has taken part in a number of projects in the web3 sector. Late last year, Mastercard started a program to assist traditional financial services in enabling customers to trade cryptocurrencies. Additionally, Mastercard collaborated with Binance to provide cryptocurrency prepaid cards in Brazil. Just recently, Mastercard revealed its plans to deploy NFT to make it easier for Web3 artists to access tools that will advance their careers.
The Mastercard Crypto credential program pilot phase kicks off.
The program testing stage begins: the structure of international money transfers will start in countries like the United States of America, The Caribbean, and Latin America. With the pilot phase, Mastercard Crypto credential program will be put to the test to see if it will work out. After the pilot phase, we anticipate seeing the program spread out to the rest of the world.
You might wonder why the program’s pilot phase is beginning in these countries. Well! According to research done by Mastercard on July 2022. More than half of their clients have encountered digital assets in Latin America and the Caribbean. In the report, over a third of the participants from Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) have used stablecoins in “the payments of everyday goods.”
Additionally, in the United States of America, According to estimates, 27 million Americans, or 8.3% of the country’s entire population, presently own cryptocurrencies. As seen from the numbers, there is an increase in virtual payments in the countries mentioned above, making it a good ground for the pilot phase.
