Visa boosts crypto adoption

It’s been revealed the fact that the payments giant Visa is looking to add backend developers to its crypto team — particularly those savvy with public blockchains and stablecoins.

Cuy Sheffield who is Visa’s vice president and head of crypto, tweeted the vacancies on Thursday. He stated the fact that the roles would help drive mainstream adoption of the technologies.

“Visa is specifically seeking individuals who have worked with cutting-edge AI-assisted engineering tools like Github Copilot to develop and debug smart contracts,” the online publication Blockworks notes.

The job listing separately stated the fact that Visa is looking for engineers who are “passionate about the Web3 stack of technologies.”

Expected experience includes testing frameworks such as Truffle, Mocha and Hardhat.

“The same Visa prefers hearing from candidates who have a good understanding of Layer-1 and Layer-2 solutions, as well as working knowledge of writing smart contracts using Solidity, Ethereum’s programming language,” the online publication notes.

He continued and stated the following: “Particularly interested in experience using Github Copilot and other AI assisted engineering tools to write and debug smart contracts.”

Back in March, Visa made headlines again.

Visa exec talks about supporting crypto

The head of Visa’s crypto department has just denied reports that the US payment giant is pausing its digital currency efforts.

Cuy Sheffield, Visa’s head of crypto, said recently via social media that the recent uncertainty in the crypto sector is not prompting the company to step away from digital currencies, as was reported earlier this week.

Sheffield calls the reports “inaccurate” and explains Visa’s current crypto efforts.

“We continue to partner with crypto companies to improve fiat on and off ramps as well as progress on our product roadmap to build new products that can facilitate stablecoin payments in a secure, compliant, and convenient way.”
