Prepaid Visa Crypto Card

Blockchain.com’s upcoming cryptocurrency is a online VISA with prepayment, relying on your FIAT or crypto funds. No need to convert cryptocurrencies to fiat currency: with this CB, you can spend your cryptocurrencies directly (or withdraw money from an ATM).

Blockchain.com offers 1% cashback on all purchases and no fees.

Subprimes, financial crises, galloping inflation, tax havens… Bitcoin was created for more transparency and maybe finally to change the situation. I try to understand this new environment and I try to explain it myself. The road is definitely long, but it’s worth it.
