Nexo Launches Crypto Card Backed By Mastercard and DiPocket

Nexo today officially unveiled the Nexo Card, a first-of-its-kind  Mastercard card backed by a cryptocurrency credit line. Initially, the card will only be accepted in a few European countries. It will allow its users to employ cryptocurrency-powered liquidity on more than 92 million merchants. A major benefit of the card is that it does not need users to sell their digital assets to use it. DiPocket is the card’s issuer, and Nexo has teamed up with them and Mastercard to make the rollout a success.

The development comes following a targeted partial rollout of the card by Nexo earlier in the year. The rollout targeted a focus group in select European countries, and it collectively generated extraordinary interest and transaction volume. The resultant high demand informed the decision to issue the card on a broader scale. In the meantime, the company has revealed that it will release a debit-type card and expand issuance internationally.

Once it goes international, around 92 million retailers worldwide will accept the Nexo Card, thanks to the DiPocket and Mastercard infrastructure. Also, investors will be able to spend up to 90% of their crypto’s fiat worth without having to sell any of it.

Exciting features

The Nexo card comes with the following features:

  • No selling crypto: A crypto-backed credit line supplied by Nexo is linked to the Nexo Card and has an introductory APR of 0% for the duration of the credit line’s life. Rather than selling their digital assets, cardholders can utilize them as collateral. In addition to Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Tether, the credit line accepts a variety of other assets as collateral.
  • No Fees: There are no monthly or inactivity fees with this card, and there are no minimum repayments. Up to €20,000 per month is exempt from FX charges.
  • Rewards: Users get cashback in the form of Bitcoin or Nexo’s native NEXO Token with every Nexo Card purchase. By doing this, customers may keep control of their digital assets. While at it, they also earn up to 2% back in free cryptocurrency for every purchase they make. Nexo then credits this instantly to the user’s Nexo account.
  • Seamless Access: The Nexo Card is compatible with Apple Pay and Google Pay and is available as a virtual or real card. You can add the card to any mobile wallet with a few taps from the Nexo Wallet App. It’s free to add more virtual cards.

Antoni Trenchev, Co-founder and Managing Partner at Nexo, stated,“ This unique product will allow millions of people, first in Europe and then worldwide, to spend instantly without having to give up the potential of their cryptocurrencies.”

Fedele Di Maggio, Co-founder and CEO at DiPocket, added, “DiPocket is delighted to have been selected as the issuer of the Nexo Card, a truly innovative solution designed to fulfill the needs of millions of investors in digital assets”.
