COMING SOON

Understanding that each customer has different needs, BlockCard offers multiple versions of its crypto debit card. They range from a virtual card for online commerce to a fully metallic card that can be used anywhere VISA is accepted. After choosing the right card for you, it’s time to set up the BlockCard App!

The App

BlockCard knew that customers prefer to manage their finances from a single platform. Thus, the BlockCard Online Dashboard and App were created to fulfill that need.

Check Your Balance

The dashboard provides real-time insights into your account balance and spending power in USD. As you make deposits, withdrawals, and transactions, the dashboard will update instantly to ensure accurate information.

Deposit and Manage

Unlike many other banking service apps, BlockCard allows customers to deposit funds directly from their mobile devices. You can choose from the multitude of digital assets available and even save specific addresses for faster transactions.

Refer Friends

Earn bonus TERN (BlockCard’s default spendable digital asset) by referring friends to join BlockCard. It’s one of the easiest ways to earn rewards throughout the BlockCard ecosystem.

Send Money

Use your virtual debit card to make purchases, withdraw TERN to a wallet or an exchange, and transfer funds directly to other users — your account dashboard gives you complete control.

BlockCard Bank Accounts

BlockCard is committed to providing anyone in the world with access to its banking services. To keep that promise, BlockCard offers a globally supported bank account that is entirely free to register.

The modern and intuitive user interface handles everything from tracking your spending, purchasing and selling cryptocurrencies, and transferring money between friends. In addition, there are no minimum balance requirements.

BlockCard’s key features include:

  • Transfer Funds: Globally deposit or withdraw using ACH & Wire Transfer
  • Buy and Sell: Seamlessly buy or sell cryptocurrency assets directly from your BlockCard bank account. Purchases are self-custodial, settled to your personal wallet.
  • Frictionless Spending: Spending digital assets has never been easier. Simply pair your BlockCard bank account with your BlockCard debit card for instant spending ability.

BlockCard bank accounts connect fiat and crypto in ways that did not seem possible just a few years ago. In essence, the crypto banking platform bridges the gap between traditional finance and digital assets, intertwining the two for customers to experience the benefits of both worlds.

BlockCard Rewards

Finally, BlockCard also has a crypto rewards program that allows BlockCard Visa Debit Card holders to stake TERN to receive rewards.

BlockCard partnered with Ternio to help make their crypto rewards card dream a reality. Ternio’s digital currency, TERN, functions as the default spendable asset if you’ve opened a BlockCard account. TERN is also the only crypto vehicle from which to earn staking rewards. TERN Staking is the process of holding funds in a cryptocurrency wallet to gain access to rewards features on BlockCard, based on the amount of TERN you stake.
