The addition of the stablecoin to the Coinbase Card will allow customers to spend crypto with less volatility, as 1 DAI is equivalent to $1.
According to Coinbase’s head of growth marketing, JD Millwood, the addition of DAI is not just one more asset to spend but a tool intent on boosting the global adoption of alternative payment methods.
“It represents a small step on our big journey to make crypto accessible to all, through alternative payment options that suit our diverse customer base.”
