Nexo launches its own credit card in cryptocurrencies
Normally, credit cards based on cryptocurrency accounts, change the cryptocurrencies you have saved for fiat currency in an amount equivalent to the transaction you are about to make using your card.
Nexo wants to change that, so he has launched his own credit card that, instead of spending your cryptocurrencies, collateralizes them and gives you a loan for the fiat money you require for your purchase, allowing us to “spend the value of your cryptocurrencies without really spend them ”in the words of a partner of the firm, Anthony Trenchev.
The credit card will work at any location that accepts MasterCard credit cards in the European Economic Zone. However, Nexo would be aiming to create strategic alliances with other companies, which would allow it to obtain the necessary permits to operate in the United States and Asia.
