Introducing Eidoo Card; your personal debit card powered by your crypto wallet

Cryptocurrency – and the underlying technology which powers it – continues to shake things up for traditional finance. In step with these innovations, we’re launching an entirely new system that links a personal debit card, the Eidoo Card, to your decentralized Eidoo wallet. 

Open finance and the economy of cryptocurrency will never be the same. 

Driving the evolution of finance

Digital currencies based on distributed ledger or blockchain infrastructure have already attracted users for their fast and cost effective settlements. In one case, $468 million worth of bitcoin was transferred for a “fee” of less than $400! Using TransferWise, the popular cross-border payments platform, it would have cost $1,684,800 to send that same amount!

Over the past few years, reports by globally recognised institutions and organisations have all predicted the global impact of the technology; it “threatens to disrupt many industries”, could unlock a $10 trillion market, and even account for as much as 10% of global Gross Domestic Product by 2025.

Backed by a transparent, inclusive and immutable system, blockchain-based currencies can be a remedy for many of the flaws built into our current centralized systems. Decentralized blockchain systems shift trust from people to software, meaning they are less vulnerable to human error or greed.

Yet despite the benefits which digital currencies and DeFi can bring – such as financial autonomy, or helping unbanked people around the world participate in the global economy – cryptocurrency holders still struggle to find practical ways to spend their coins and tokens day to day.

Here at Eidoo, we want the value of cryptocurrencies to transcend beyond the online realm so they spread into the real world. That’s why we’re creating simple tools and products which give access to this new digital economy. 

Enter Eidoo Card

Link your very own debit card, the Eidoo Card, to your decentralized Eidoo wallet. You’ll be able to easily convert your Bitcoin and Ether into British Pounds or Euros, and load them onto the card directly in-app to start spending straight away. 

This almost instant experience will give you the sensation of spending your crypto at the point of sale. Now you can avoid the hassle of interacting with centralized exchanges or wire transfers to use your crypto in the real world. Rather, you can use your card online or in store, or even withdraw your funds from ATMs, with just a few taps of your Eidoo app. 

Eidoo Cards will initially be available for all our UK and EU based users who have passed our Know-Your-Customer process. If you have already set up your eidooID in your wallet, you can request a new card with no additional verification.  

Are there different account levels? 

Eidoo Card offers three types of accounts; Basic, VIP, and Black (metal). 

To pre-order a Basic card, Eidoo wallet users are required to burn some tokens. For VIP and Black cards, users stake a certain amount of EDO, which means you lock up your tokens as collateral. By staking and participating in our pre-order program, you will get access to some early-bird rewards and benefits.

Each account also has its own unique benefits and crypto cash back reward, allowing card holders to earn up to 10% of the total purchase amount per transaction. 

Card holders are guaranteed to receive the maximum achievable crypto cash back if they pre-order their card. The cashback rate falls to half when ordered post-launch. All tokens earned through the crypto cashback scheme are always unlocked, so you can withdraw these anytime you like. 

The staking process is simple and you can easily buy EDO directly in-app if you need some.

• Burn 100 EDO
No annual, ATM or purchase fees
• Double your crypto cashback when pre-ordered

When cards are ordered post-launch, card holders will earn the following cashback rates: Basic 0% – 1.5% // VIP 1.5% – 3.25% // Black 3.25% – 5%

 

What other benefits can I get from the eidoo card program?


An eidooSWAP discount

• VIP holders receive a 50% discount on eidooSWAP fees for 6 months when a card is pre-ordered; 25% if ordered post-launch.
