A bitcoin card is an essential item for any bitcoiners out there. A bitcoin prepaid card is just like any other prepaid card that you can top up using Bitcoins. Not only does it offer ease and simplicity, a bitcoin prepaid card also ensures anyone to truly integrate using Bitcoin in everyday activities. And the Bitwala Bitcoin Prepaid Card is just like any other bitcoin prepaid card out there but better.

How is it better?

Easy question. With the card, you can swipe at any POS that accepts VISA ®, cash out at any ATM close by and pay online. You can get rid of that bank account of yours and start handling your financials using Bitwala. Spend your Bitcoins anywhere super easily. No hassle, no crazy bureaucracy. Gone are the days where people rely on MoneyGram, Western Union, or other similar services that require you to leave the comfort of your couch during working hours and could potentially cause a significant dent in your wallet.

What are the benefits?

Once you have signed up and activated your Bitwala Bitcoin Prepaid Card, you can:

  • Access your prepaid card funds 24/7 at your account online, via phone or mobile app. Anytime, anywhere.
  • Make purchases in-store, over the phone and online at any merchant that accepts prepaid cards.
  • Cash out at any ATM while paying a low and fixed fee.

That’s great and all, but where can I use it?

Name us a country on top of your head. Yeah, you can use it there. Repeat this process, times infinity. The Bitwala Bitcoin Prepaid Card can handle anything at any of the over 30 million merchants where VISA ® is accepted.

Interesting. But I already have loads of cards in my wallet and I don’t need more.
