EU prepares to get rid of American Visa and MasterCard

In the light of the trade wars that the US administration is now unleashing around the world, and the sanctions generously distributed by it, the US European partners in NATO have felt the threat to the sovereignty of payments in Europe.




According to the French AFP agency, citing its own source in the banking sector, twenty EU banks are participating in the creation of a single European payment system, which could become an alternative to the American Visa, Master Card and others.

At the same time, the interlocutor clarified that the idea that arose in 2017 and is known as the PEPSI (Pan-European Payment System Initiative) was not originally determined technical, political motives.

As follows from the message, the agency could not find official confirmation by banks of this information, which in itself is not surprising: such decisions and their implementation require silence and confidentiality.

However, AFP notes that similar messages came from other sources. In particular, one of them claims that most French banks and the German Deutsche Bank are taking part in the development of the new payment system.

The agency also refers to the representative of the French BNP Paribas Carlo Bovero, who admitted that an active discussion of such an initiative is being conducted among European banking institutions.

    If you have something to replace, you can try. We will depend less and less on the West. Better yet, it's time to start your release of such cards.

    In the EU there is an EU banking system (EuroCard). Actually, with the creation and introduction of their own currency (euro) of the country, participants in this process have achieved independence from the dollar.

      Well done, if you really made such a system. And then what, they still use the dollar and do not use it in practice?

        Who are you talking about? Where is the dollar used? I often visit Germany, there aren’t even money changers there, and they look in banks with surprise if they want to buy dollars ... In the Czech Republic, for example, you can buy bucks ...

          In the EU, all transactions go through the dollar. Spain, Italy are an example of this. When they come to Germany, tourists change them!

            You obviously have never been to the EU! There are no transactions in dollars, all transactions in the listed countries, especially only in euros! Why use a buck to lose on exchange - is that not very smart? I understand that under contracts in the USA, they can indicate in dollars, in South America also in euros, they have duty-free trade in 5 countries ...

              Well, yes, of course, all countries are settled between the dollars themselves, though maybe not always.

              Why use a buck to lose on exchange - is that not very smart?

              You need to ask them, and even better from minke whales, they tied them to the dollar, and now they pull them for this thread. With minke whales and with many other countries, they are definitely paying in dollars. yes

              I understand that under contracts in the USA, they can indicate in dollars, in South America also in euros, they have duty-free trade in 5 countries ...

              Do minke whales really need their euro to pay off?

                I don’t know with whom I communicate, with a car or with a woodpecker? I repeat, in the EU all payments go in euros, export deliveries (except the USA) go in euros!

                  Well, since you consider yourself a woodpecker, then I will write again: in the EU, settlements are in dollars and euros.

                  Inside the EU, it is. But international payments, transfers, transfers, etc. go in dollars, because the dollar is the main reserve currency (60%), more precisely, it is converted through it. For example, if you sell soybeans from Canada to Belgium, the calculation chain looks like: Euro-US dollar - Canadian dollar ..

                    If I buy equipment, goods are different for Kazakhstan from Germany or other EU countries, then the calculations go only in euros, and this is already from 2002! No need to powder your brain with your ignorance of the topic! We ship 3-5 trucks a month, and no one ever had the idea to pay for Kazakhstani imports from the EU in bucks. The only link is Kazakhstan trucks, where you can pay in bucks.

                  In vain you call names, perhaps you are a woodpecker, if you do not understand that international trade is a broader concept than you think. This is not for you to change the bucks in the exchanger. For example, according to various sources, 80-85% of the total annual energy imports to European countries is made in dollars.

                  It is absurd that European companies buy European planes for dollars, not for euros

      No, EuroCard merged with Master Card back in 2002
