Amex Veteran Launches White-Label Bitcoin Debit Card Platform

A new platform for payments processing is looking to capitalize on nascent demand for bitcoin-powered debit card solutions.

Founded in February, Blade Financial is pitching its service to digital currency companies that want to offer debit card services to customers but lack the resources or capabilities to actually launch a product. Such offerings have proved problematic for some startups, and for Blade, this uneven track record is a big business opportunity.
