CoinMENA partners VISAs FinTech Fast Track Program


CoinMENA a leading digital assets exchange in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), today announced that it has joined Visa’s Fintech Fast Track program, speeding up the process of integrating with Visa, a world leader in digital payments.

The Visa Fintech Fast Track program will empower CoinMENA to more easily leverage the reach, capabilities, and security of VisaNet, the company’s global payment network, and unveil a host of Visa-exclusive services, including the CoinMENA VISA Card. The firm also claims that it will also leverage the Visa Fintech Fast Track program to introduce a series of partner initiatives specifically designed to simplify onramp and offramp operations for its users.

CoinMENA is a Bahrain-based cryptocurrency financial services company that is licensed and regulated by the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB).

CoinMENA users can buy, sell, store and receive digital assets safely and securely, as well as make deposits and withdrawals in their local fiat currencies. CoinMENA’s overarching goal is to become the preferred crypto financial services company in its region.

By joining Visa’s Fintech Fast Track program, CoinMENA now has the ability to access Visa’s growing partner network and experts who can provide guidance in helping them get up and running in the most efficient way possible.
