    Payments giant Visa is working on ways to support the purchase of Bitcoin using Visa credentials, the company’s chief executive officer Al Kelly said on Fortune’s Leadership Next podcast.

    "We're trying to do two things; one is enable the purchase of Bitcoin on Visa credentials, and then secondly working with some Bitcoin wallets to allow the Bitcoin to be translated into a fiat currency," Kelly explained.

    He added that enabling the instant conversion of the cryptocurrency into fiat would enable some 70 million merchants around the world to accept BTC as a payment method.

    As well as facilitating Bitcoin purchases, Visa is also working with fiat-backed digital currencies, with Kelly noting that, "We see a strong potential for those to become a new payment vehicle," and an "accelerant" in emerging markets. He added that Visa is working with around 35 "players" in the digital currency world.

    Wait until the quarterly comes out with the changes they've made moving to more of a digital platform for gaming. Anyone know about the deal they have with Microsoft?

    I just bought another 100 shares today when it dumped as I expected.

    Bitcoin is in the same basic boat as is Monero so get you some of something and just HODL.

    This is not financial advice and I am not a financial advisor...simply my opinion

    I do pretty well though...just saying


    The best part of all of this is it's something that brings the masses together rather than putting us at odds with each other which means it's just a matter of time until the Guillotines are re-introduced.
    I haven’t read anything on a Microsoft deal with GameStop. I’ve steered clear of stocks since the recession of 2008. I know just enough to be dangerous to my self interest haha

For example, if I need to buy $300 to pay from an order do I just buy $300 worth from someone then send them out or do I have to find someone who is selling coins for a certain price. Seems like they range from $400-$650. Trying to figure this Bitcoin thing out. Thanks.

    Here you go man.

    Below is the full article as a copy/paste and this was known to be happening well before it actually did or this article being written.


    The partnership aims to advance GameStop’s key strategic pillars and extend its digital omni-channel ecosystem

    Grapevine, Texas and Redmond, Wash. (October 8, 2020) – GameStop Corp. (NYSE: GME) (“The Company”) today announced that it has entered into a multi-year strategic partnership agreement with Microsoft Corp., further advancing its strategy to expand its physical and digital video game offerings, as well as enhance the Company’s retail technology infrastructure. With over 5,000+ retail stores worldwide and its world-class eCommerce platform, GameStop leverages its vast customer network, PowerUp Rewards, and omni-channel capabilities to deliver enhanced gaming solutions to its customers. Through this partnership, GameStop will standardize the Company’s business operations on Microsoft’s cloud solutions and hardware products to deliver rich new digital experiences to customers, creating the “ultimate gaming destination” for gamers in its vision to be the premier omni-channel customer access point for video game products.

    The partnership includes enterprise and commercial elements.

    • Under this agreement, GameStop will standardize its back-end and in-store solutions on Dynamics 365, Microsoft’s portfolio of cloud-based business applications and customer data platform, empowering associates with integrated experiences across its business operations including finance, inventory, eCommerce, retail and point of sale. This will enable store associates the ability to access omni-channel insights about customer preferences and purchasing history, real time information on product availability, subscriptions, pricing, and promotions in order to provide a differentiated and personalized in-store customer experience.
    • Additionally, associates will be equipped with new Microsoft Surface devices that will transform the in-store experience and help unlock new retail experiences in the future. The mobility of Microsoft Surface will allow associates to move freely within the store footprint, meeting the needs of customers faster and more efficiently. Microsoft Surface devices have already been an important part of the digital modernization strategy for store management.
    • As part of its transformation, GameStop plans to roll out Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams to its stores, empowering more than 30,000 store associates with enhanced productivity and collaboration tools. With Teams, store associates will more easily be able to ask questions and share insights with one another, enabling them to provide a better customer experience. Associates will also benefit from enhanced security and identify management capabilities.
    • Following decades as an essential provider of the Microsoft Xbox gaming platform and services, GameStop has expanded its Xbox family of product offerings to include Xbox All Access, which provides an Xbox console and 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to players with no upfront cost. GameStop and Microsoft will both benefit from the customer acquisition and lifetime revenue value of each gamer brought into the Xbox ecosystem.

    George Sherman, GameStop’s Chief Executive Officer, stated: “This is an exciting day at GameStop as we announce the advancement of an important partnership that capitalizes on the power of our operating platform and significant market share in gaming to accelerate our digital transformation; drive incremental revenue streams; and over time, further monetize the digital world of gaming. Since joining the Company last April, we have been on a mission to evolve our strategy to take advantage of our undisputed leadership position in gaming. Clearly, GameStop is a top destination for an entire spectrum of gaming products, and we are excited about the opportunity to leverage our capabilities in support of the launch of the next generation of gaming consoles and expand our reach and connection to the worldwide gamer community through this partnership.”
    “GameStop has become a popular destination for gamers to find their favorite video games, hardware and accessories, socialize with others in the community, try out new games, and get educated on the latest tips and trends,” said Matt Renner, President, US Enterprise Commercial, Microsoft. “By harnessing the power of Dynamics 365 and Microsoft 365, GameStop will be able to modernize its technology infrastructure and support store associates and fans in new and exciting ways. This partnership also provides GameStop with advanced retail management technologies that will drive operational efficiencies throughout its omni-channel platform.”
    Phil Spencer, Microsoft, Executive Vice President of Gaming, added: “For many years GameStop has been a strong go-to-market partner for our gaming products, and we are excited about continuing and evolving that relationship for the launch of the Xbox Series X|S. GameStop’s extensive store base, focus on digital transformation in an omni-channel environment and expert gamer associates remain an important part of our gaming ecosystem, and we’re pleased to elevate our partnership.”
    Jim Bell, GameStop’s Chief Financial Officer commented, “We believe Microsoft’s integrated retail technology platform will enable the continued development of our frictionless omni-channel digital environment, providing customers with an exceptional cross-channel experience for all things video gaming.” Mr. Bell continued, “By standardizing on Microsoft 365 and Dynamics 365, all accessed with Microsoft Surface devices at our fingertips, we will be able to create a better connection with our associates and provide them with powerful new tools to deliver rich engaging experiences to our customers while significantly enhancing our cross-channel view of inventory ensuring the most efficient delivery of products to our customers.”

    All things financial are about due diligence and I know you know what I'm talking about via real estate...ever buy a house/property without an inspection? I'm going to 1000% say you haven't because I know you're smarter than that.

    You are correct. Multiple levels of due diligence is the only way to get accurate numbers and Im 100% a numbers guy when it comes to property investments.

    Coinbase is working on a Visa attached to crypto. I got on the waiting list a few weeks ago. Once the dollar falls it could be a backup plan. Also the fed announced today they do expect inflation.

    Yeah, it was a really good time to buy Bitcoin. Moreover, if look how much profit you could make on it if you bought some 3 months ago. Bitcoin is reaching new heights every day, and I don't think it will go back, or at least that it will go lower than 35 thousand. Analysts predict that bitcoin will reach 150 thousand at the end of 2021, well, if I had doubts about it 2 months ago, today I am almost sure it will hit 150K. If you are interested in this subject you can find more on forextb.com, you will find a lot of interesting things there.

    US stock market had a hell of a bad day today. Maybe correlated? I feel like all of us crypto fans think that when/if "the old financial system" falls apart, crypto will shine. I would not be worried if a (stock) market crash causes crypto market to crash right along with it because always trade with the best crypto bot trading solution
