Details about DigiFinex’s debit card
Crypto debit cards are growing in popularity, as they allow users to fill them up with their cryptocurrencies and then pay for goods and services. DigiFinex’s debit card will allow users to pay with NEO first, via UnionPay, and the card is expected to come out on March 30th of this year.
The card was originally announced only a few weeks ago, on February 24th. Back then, DigiFinex and Blucon held a press conference during which they revealed it. At the time, Da Hongfei, the co-founder of NEO, was one of the participants of the conference held on Zoom.
Apart from NEO, the card will also add support for a handful of other coins, including BTC, ETH, DASH, DFT, and BEP.
