Visa Card

Visa recently posted a job opening for a cryptographic engineer with experience using AI-aided engineering tools, specifically GitHub Copilot.

The main focus of this new software engineer will be to work on creating and debugging blockchain smart contracts, as well as help drive the adoption of stablecoins and public blockchains.

GitHub Copilot is an AI-powered programming tool.

GitHub Copilot is an AI-powered programming tool that can suggest code within the user’s code editor based on natural language prompts.

Although it has been tested in a limited context, the developers have reported mixed results. However, Visa seems to be particularly interested in this tool and wants to hire an engineer who is familiar with it.

Working with public blockchains.

In his tweet, Visa’s Head of Crypto Cuy Sheffield noted that the new software engineer will not only work on blockchain smart contracts but will also help drive the adoption of public blockchains and stablecoins.

In January, Visa announced new plans for stablecoins and CBDC and is already settling USDC transactions on Ethereum. Additionally, the company has been pushing payment cards for several popular crypto businesses, suggesting increased interest in blockchain technology.

What does this mean for the adoption of blockchain technology?

With this new job offer, Visa is sending a clear signal that it is committed to further investing in blockchain and cryptocurrency technology. Visa is a global payments company and its adoption of this technology could have a major impact on the mainstream adoption of blockchain and cryptocurrency.

If Visa can help develop more robust and secure smart contracts, it could pave the way for mass blockchain adoption around the world.
