This page lists cryptocurrency-fueled debit cards, current as of April 2020.

Sources include this spreadsheet and this Bitcointalk discussion. Please contribute any edits here, as those other sources are not actively maintained. Links may contain referral codes, to reward both new users, and the maintainers of this comparison table. Feel free to remove them from the URL before navigating.

Whenever possible, link to the source. KYC requirements you've personally experienced may lack links, though links to screenshots (like this) would be helpful.


  • Est. = Established, (Mon) YYYY
  • POA = Proof of Address
  • SoF = Source of Funds, requested by some companies before or during using the card
  • HQ links may point to the contact page, to save space
  • Card cost may include issuance and shipping/delivery cost; add links for details
  • Maintenance fees are independent of withdrawals or purchases; they are required to keep the card active
  • "Fee structure" should link to a page detailing the maintenance (though usually 0), deposit, transfer, exchange, transaction, and/or issuance fees, though due to the volatility of crypto, they're rather meaningless. The issuance fee/cost can also be explicitly stated in the "Card cost" column.
  • Limits indicate withdrawal, maximum balance, or other limits. Always link to the source.
  • non-custodial = you hold your funds, not the card company
  • Given the fluctuations of crypto, rewards are generally insignificant, so there's no column for them. Link to the rewards page in the "Notes" if you want.
