Nevertheless, as the crypto exchange confirmed, debit cards are still valid as a payment method.

At the same time, Coinbase admitted that a plethora of its clients had chosen credit cards as their major payment option, so when they decided to bar their customers form utilizing new cards, they were highly aware of what they were doing. In the announcement, the company stated:

"We are actively working with card networks and card issuers to find a long-term solution."

Notwithstanding the above, people who have already added their cards to the crypto exchange, are free to keep using them for as long as their financial institution permits them.

Changes Dead Ahead

Meanwhile, Coinbase clients who are based in other countries and regions, including UK, Canada, Singapore, Australia, as well as EU, are not going to stay aside. The exchange is examining conditions there, considering responsiveness, and is assessing resembling adjustments.
