Further, users can benefit and apply this card with Alchemy Pay’s mini app Crypto Card on Binance Marketplace, it added.

The BIN number allows merchants to accept multiple forms of payment and allows transactions to be processed faster. It can also help banks to detect fraudulent or stolen cards, thus preventing identity theft.

“Adding new card BINs would enhance the capabilities of crypto cards, enabling support for a broader range of payment situations and improving transaction success rates,” the release noted.

Alchemy Applies for VASP License in Hong Kong

Additionally, the crypto payment platform is already in the process of applying for a Money Service Operator (MSO) license and Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASP) in Hong Kong.
