Can the purchase of crypto be considered an upfront payment?
As reported Cointelegraph today has to contend with a class action lawsuit against the banking giant Chase, which depends on whether crypto currency purchases are considered a kind of prepayment or a cash-like transaction, as described in his credit card agreement. Most recently, the judge in charge of the case said that the interviewee's interpretation that cryptocurrency purchases are not in this category is sufficiently plausible to continue the lawsuit. Because of this, some of Chase's refusal requests have been rejected because they are closely related to this issue.
