Over the past year, the popularity of Bitcoin among investors has increased significantly.

Now people are ready to spend their coins on utilities and products. Although several shops and companies accept Bitcoin, it is still not easy to find places to pay with cryptocurrency.

You will be lucky if you find one, otherwise, you will need to sell the coin on the Hiribi exchange, get fiat currency in your bank account and then spend it.

But there are several startups that are working to solve this problem by presenting us bitcoin debit cards.

Are you surprised?

First of all, let’s find out how these cards work.

How does a Bitcoin debit card work

Suppose you want to buy something with bitcoin, but the seller accepts only fiat currency (cards/cash money) or you don’t have fiat but only bitcoins. This is where you will need the debit cards.

You need to deposit the bitcoins in your wallet and in return, you will get a card with a similar balance that you can use to buy goods and services.

We hope you’ve understood the concept of these cards. They’re like our regular debit cards, but instead of the fiats, they have bitcoins on them.

Since there are different bitcoin debit cards, we will study and compare them so that you can choose the best one according to your requirements.

The best bitcoin debit card

We used the BTC debit card only once, but we did a complete study, compared them by different factors and then chose one for ourselves.

In our opinion, before choosing a card, you should evaluate it according to the following parameters.

Specifically.

  • It must support various fiat currencies such as USD, EUR, CYN, etc.
  • Does the service have a mobile application for instant deposits?
  • Does the service require verification?
  • Do you get a virtual card or not?
  • Do you get a physical card or not?
  • What type of card will you get (Visa/Master)?
  • Charges and other fees?
  • Can I trust the company?
  • Is the card available in your country?
