Crypto debit cards: the 3 best suggestions in Europe

Chevron down

Debit cards have become a successful system in the crypto world, hence we thought of making a small list of the best crypto card projects in Europe

The ability to keep part of one’s savings in decentralized cryptocurrency circuits and then be able to spend them in everyday life whenever deemed appropriate has become a major necessity.

This is why a series of projects and proposals in the debit card world has led to the death and birth of many alternatives.

After the famous Xapo, which is now no longer available in Europe, and the very useful ePayment whose accounts have been blocked for regulatory verification, here are three new alternatives.

Among them is the all-new Eidoo PAY, which is proving to be interesting with its commercially aggressive proposition

The integration of the wallet and DEX, able to connect to the DeFi world, has a strong appeal today. When choosing a project to rely on, it is essential to observe the ecosystem it has been able to develop. 

The possibility of remaining within a single platform for the management of investments, allocations, loans and expenses, is fundamental for those who approach this world.
