The Wedge Visa debit card is “issued through Wedge’s program manager in conjunction with a bank partner, pursuant to a license from Visa U.S.A. Inc.”

As noted in the update, Wedge is on a mission “to make consumers’ dollars go farther by bringing the power of the markets and programmable payments to everyday spending.”

Wedge provides a spending app that “lets users fund everyday purchases by using any asset in their Wedge wallet, including stocks, cryptocurrencies, ETFs, and cash.”

Wedge is “reinventing everyday spending by giving users the choice of selecting the optimal asset to use at checkout to save on purchases by taking advantage of real-time market movements.”
