Visa Applies License to Replace Cash with Cryptocurrency To Improve Payment’s Ecosystem.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) published a statement filed by Visa International Service Association on Nov. 8, 2019.
“The central entity computer causes removal of the physical currency from circulation in a fiat currency system.”
Likely, this payment ecosystem may become 100% digital and “cash may be removed from the markets in a frictionless manner” to improve the payment ecosystem. “Users may hold digital currency with the same denomination as the local physical currency.”
Once the digital fiat currency is issued, “A user or bank may transfer the digital currency from wallet to wallet or store the digital currency on a smart card and transfer the smart card to another entity.”

Earlier this week, Denley and his team reported another 22 fraudulent extensions. Most of these have since been removed by Chrome.
