The release of a new crypto debit card is an event that deserves attention. On one hand, the launch shows there is a growing demand from cryptocurrency users. On the other, it means businesses see an opportunity to profit from providing this type of product. Bitnovo, a Spain-based fintech company, now offers a Visa prepaid card which can be loaded with bitcoin cash.
Bitnovo Introduces Bitsa to Several Markets in Europe
One of the latest offerings in this niche entered the market quite recently. Bitnovo’s prepaid Visa card called Bitsa was launched a couple of months ago in addition to the platform’s Bitcards. It can be topped up with bitcoin cash (BCH), among a total of seven cryptocurrencies, and a number of other payment methods.
Since April, some European users of Bitnovo, which is a platform that trades over 20 digital currencies, can order their new Bitsa card, which can be used to pay anywhere Visa is accepted and withdraw cash from ATMs around the world. It allows holders to make online purchases, pay in brick and mortar stores and online merchants.
With Bitsa you can not only transfer money between different cards but also make payments to any financial institution within SEPA, the single euro payments area. The card employs the Verified by Visa system, so payment security shouldn’t be a problem.
To order a Bitsa card, you don’t even need to have a bank account, although you’ll be able to transfer funds to other cards and accounts. This way Bitsa provides you with easy access to financial services and that’s something the unbanked in Europe should appreciate and take advantage of.
