Initially, Binance announced a partnership with Swipe for a debit card launch, however, just recently Binance as actually acquired the platform. Changpeng Zhao commented:

To achieve our mission of making crypto more accessible to the masses, off-ramps are a key component as well. By giving users the ability to convert and spend crypto directly, and have merchants still seamlessly accept fiat, this will make the crypto experience much better for everyone.
