What's the difference: Cryptocurrency vs Credit/Debit card transactions?

30 Dec 2021 By PAYCEC

  • Cryptocurrency payments are analogous to wire transfers or cash transactions, where payment is "pushed" directly from one party to another, without going through another financial institution. Payment processing is executed through a private network of computers, and each transaction is recorded in a blockchain, which is public.
  • Credit/Debit card transactions entail the buyer effectively authorizing the seller to "pull" a payment from their account, passing through financial intermediaries in the process. For example, a typical Visa/Mastercard/Amex transaction involves 4 parties: the merchant, the acquirer (the financial institution that enables payments to the merchant), the issuer (the cardholder's bank), and the individual cardholder.
