March 26, 2020 – Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by volume and users and a global blockchain company focused on crypto infrastructure, today announced the Binance Card to bridge the gap between cryptocurrencies and everyday purchases. The Binance Card is part of the company’s efforts towards furthering global cryptocurrency adoption in a tangible manner.
Binance Unveils Binance Crypto Card
The Binance Card issued by Visa will allow all new and existing Binance users in eligible regions to make purchases and pay bills with cryptocurrency, including Bitcoin and BNB, at over 46 million Visa merchants worldwide, covering over 200 regions and territories both in-store and online. The card works like a regular debit card issued by a bank where the user deposits funds into the card before making payments, without monthly or annual fees, and a one-time payment of 15 USD for ordering the card.
Binance Card holders will be able to manage their accounts through the Binance Card App which will be available, as a Beta release, for download on Android and iOS smartphones in the coming weeks. The Binance Card App will allow users to deposit BTC or BNB directly from their Binance.com account, view transaction history, manage their PIN, withdraw funds and access customer support.
“We see the Binance Card as a further step in making crypto even more useful. The Binance Card does everything a regular payment card does, plus much more. Users can forget about monthly or yearly card fees, and can expect unique features to be rolled out this year,” said Josh Goodbody, Binance Director of Growth.
Binance is initially releasing the Binance Card in South East Asia, and will announce availability in new regions at a later date as well as support for additional cryptocurrencies. All interested users can register now for the card via card.binance.com, and will be notified once the card becomes available in their region.
“Paying with crypto remains one of the biggest challenges in furthering utility and adoption. The whole team at Binance is dedicated to working towards solving these challenges and creating meaningful applications that enable crypto to be used by everyday people. We believe the Binance Card is a significant step in encouraging wider crypto use and global adoption,” said Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao, also known as CZ.
