The leading cryptocurrency exchange in the U.S., Coinbase, will see its Visa debit card service expand to six more European countries this month.
According to the company's official blog post, the Coinbase card will now be available to customers in Spain, Germany, France, Italy, Ireland, and the Netherlands.
Coinbase's Visa debit card debuted in the U.K. in April this year after securing an e-money license in the country.

Once the waitlist closes, the users' crypto balance will immediately be available through the in-app virtual card while they wait for the physical card to be sent through the post.
