Bulgarian Platform Nexo Unveils Crypto-Backed Mastercard for EEA Citizens

A crypto-powered debit and credit Mastercard for EEA citizens has been introduced by the Bulgarian decentralized lending platform Nexo. The Nexo Card will enable users to spend their euro, US dollar, and British pound stablecoins via debit transactions at more than 100 million merchant terminals globally, according to the statement made on August 31. According to reports, interest on stored amounts will be paid annually, up to 9%.


Major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are utilized as collateral in the Nexo Card’s credit transactions, which also give up to 2% cash back and interest rates of 16% annually on utilized credit lines. When used at terminals, debit and credit transactions both instantly convert consumers’ crypto to fiat money. Custodial assets, according to Nexo, are covered by Ledger and Bakkt insurance.

The company further claims that there are no monthly or inactivity costs, no foreign currency fees for up to 20,000 euros ($21,700) per month, and a cap of 10,000 euros ($10,800) on ATM transactions per month with the new Nexo Card. Both a virtual card and a physical card, both of which may be used with Apple Pay and Google Pay, will be provided after completing Know Your Customer verification checks. Only nationals of the EEA’s 30 member nations are eligible for the card.

Bulgarian authorities allegedly broke into Nexo’s corporate offices in Sofia earlier this year on suspicion of breaking Russian sanctions and anti-money laundering regulations. The company declared that it would file a lawsuit against the Bulgarian government for incident-related damages. Nexo does not offer services to Bulgarian citizens as a result of problems with the regional administration.
