I saw a video on youtube about a card for Bitcoin, is there a legit card service?

(I am a complete noob in bitcoin so please mention links in the answers)

  • There are no existing "credit" cards out there. Only debit cards. Almost all of the bitcoin debit cards existing nowadays are rebrandings of the "MyChoiceCorporate" debit card. I honestly can't name one that doesn't use MCC. – Whyte the Weeabear Oct 4 '16 at 11:50

Two card services that I know of are xapo and e-coin (debit) cards. I know people that used them successfully and as far as I can tell are legit.

  • Thanks for the answer! , can you tell me if i can use the card your mentioned anywhere like a common Master or Visa card (I live in Sri Lanka & Bitcoin is not famous here yet & that's why i'm asking) – Theravada Feb 9 '16 at 20:28

    That is the idea: you can use it anywhere you could use a card. For example, the e-coin card is mastercard so it will be accepted everywhere a mastercard is accepted. Both cards work in several European countries. I cannot be certain but I don't believe you will have issues in Sri Lanka. – karask Feb 9 '16 at 21:00

I have used xapo. The card works great. There is a Bitcoin wallet app where you can store bitcoins. The debit card just spends what you have in your wallet.

Bitstamp which is an exchange for buying coins also provide debit cards. I haven't used the card but bitstamp is a well known reputable exchange.

    The xapo card is a visa debit. As far as I know you can use it anywhere visa works. I have never had any problems. – Kharoof Feb 9 '16 at 20:31
  • bitstamp solution is terrible. they have very low withdrawal limit per month. and when I made the product choice it was not written there. only deposit limit that are elevated when they do aditional KYC/AML. In summary beware of that. Everything else bitstamp does is OK, debit card is not. – Comodore May 29 '16 at 12:54
