9 Best Bitcoin Debit Cards To Spend Crypto In 2023

Best Bitcoin Debit Cards

Bitcoin is now over 14 years old.

Though the number of merchants accepting bitcoin is thriving, it is a little difficult for a normal user to quickly spend BTC on goods and services.

If you find a merchant that accepts bitcoins directly, then all is well and good.

If not, then you have to sell your BTCs yourself on an exchange, withdraw the fiat currency back to your bank account, and then spend it.

But with Bitcoin debit cards, a few of these steps have been eliminated. The card companies do the exchanging part, and you just spend your BTCs freely.

Here are the best Bitcoin debit cards to use in 2022:

  1. Crypto.com cards
  2. Binance card (up to 8% cashback)
  3. Wirex Debit card (5% Cashback)
  4. Cryptopay debit card
  5. Nexo Card (About to launch)
  6. Coinbase Bitcoin debit card
  7. Bitpay debit card
  8. Juno.finance – Crypto card with checking account (For USA 🇺🇸 users)

That’s why today we are going to discuss such Bitcoin debit cards services which allow you to spend your bitcoins easily, even if a merchant doesn’t accept bitcoins.

  • Is the fee structure reasonable?
  • Is it a VISA/MasterCard?
  • Are their software wallets free of bugs?
  • Are there additional fees?

    Hi, I am using Spectrocoin debit card. I like the fact that you can use DASH to send to Spectrocoin to recharge the card. (You can use Bitcoin also, but Dash transactions are so much faster and cheaper.)

    The fees are lower too and I did not any payment problems so far.

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      Thanks jetglobal
      Will review SpectroCoin cards and add it.

    I noticed that none of the physical Debit cards listed above are available to residents of the U.S.?

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      Yes, that’s their policy and some countries they don’t serve as well.

    As of October 15, 2017, any bitcoin debit card issued by Wave Crest will be deactivated outside the European region. Now, I’m scrambling for a new card as I am on Belize, Central America and there are no BTC machines available here and cash is still king. For many of us unbanked, bitcoin is a no-brainer to me. I’ve heard rumors MasterCard is going to offer a card, but I haven’t seen any offers yet. They’d better hurry!!!

    I find your article outdated.

    For those of us who ‘need’ plastic cards, most of the companies you listed above will have their customers’ Visa cards de-serviced as of October 15, 2017 for all countries outside the European Union:

    SpectroCoin, Xapo, Wirex and Uquid.

    I’ve been in touch with all of them and they are searching or in talks with new vendors to cover the rest of the world.

    Wirex will be offering a ‘contactless’ card, which means the merchant has to have a scanner to be used with a smartphone–not available on Belize yet.

    Uquid will not accept my US Passport to verify my account, but the other 3 have.

    I keep looking, but will be informed by the above companies as soon as a solution is found.

      Thank you I am looking to, there was one, but looks like it is based in germany and I’ve just looked it up and that is spectocoin so they are out too. Damn it. I woill let you know if I find anything.

        Nicki Love

        Thanks, Paul. I have looked at Uquid and Cryptopayme, same boat without any oars.

        Wirex presented a webinar last week that they were taken by surprise and are working on a Contactless card, but nothing concrete yet. Many of us on the webinar voiced that we need a plastic card too, that the contactless won’t help us to withdraw from ATMs. All I know is they’re working on it.

    They are based in England and will be using wavecrest and therefore will shut down after 10th October outside EU.

  6. Kagwiria Kimathi

    Is there a card that serves most global countries especially in Africa? I see most are limited to countries they serve

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      @KK Thanks will update this with more info.
      For now thisserves in Africa.

    i wouldn’t recommend UQUID to anyone really , they let you deposit money in their account only not to even be able to purchase a virtual debit card whatsoever , my money is still in my uquid account and i have nothing i can do with it except to recharge my mbile phone with the balance . find other btc debit cards providers elsewhere or get scammed .

      Thanks! Fortunately I got hung in the process of verifying because it wouldn’t accept my South American phone numbers as valid. I was doing this even though the web site doesn’t pass the “smell test.”
