The Best, Safest, And Most Reliable Bitcoin Debit Cards

best Bitcoin debit cards

Bitcoin is now more than 10 years old.

Though the number of merchants accepting bitcoins is increasing steadily, 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 the advent of 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 2019:

  1. Crypto.com cards
  2. Wirex Debit card (5% Cashback)
  3. Cryptopay debit card
  4. Nexo Card (About to launch)
  5. Coinbase Bitcoin debit card
  6. Bitpay debit card
  7. Aximetria

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.

Which Bitcoin Debit Card To Choose?

Nowadays, many financial startups are coming up with more and more crypto debit cards.

So how do you decide the best for you among so many available options?

In my opinion, you should look out for the following things before choosing your Bitcoin debit card:

  • Do they serve in your country?
  • Is the fee structure reasonable?
  • Is it a VISA/MasterCard?
  • Are their software wallets free of bugs?
  • Are there additional fees?
  • Is the startup well-funded?
  • What’s the company’s background?

MCO visa card seems to be the top Bitcoin debit card at this moment.

The others we’ve listed above are all highly reputable and will provide you with great Bitcoin debit card service. But it’s always advised to do your due diligence.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!!!

  3. 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.

    1. 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.

      1. 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.

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

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

  6. 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 .

    1. 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.”

  7. Well, anything for saudi arabia? These cards boasting worldwide delivery barely list 50 countries in their card delivery sections.

  8. Currently I have tried all of them and only wirex is legit, all the rest are still waiting to issue their card for some reasons. I have registered on all.

  9. Hello,

    How are you?

    Does Cryptopay still issue their debit cards to Australia, please?

    Thank you very much and have a nice day.

    Eissa
