At present, Mastercard holders can only pay for things using currency that the government has declared as legal tender, Seth Eisen, Mastercard's senior vice president for communications, said.
In the document, published with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Mastercard said that there has been "increased usage" in blockchain currencies by consumers who "value anonymity and security."
