Cards are being re-issued at a fast pace. Eighty percent of MasterCard’s roughly 195 million US credit cards have chips, marking an 88% increase in adoption since October. That’s a huge uptick from MasterCard’s last update in April, when just 68% of its credit-card customers had chip cards. MasterCard is ahead of Visa, which expects that 75% of its US-issued credit cards will contain chips by the end of the year.
