Holiday season has just passed, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t think about your loved ones until it comes back again. If you’re late with your gifts, have people’s birthdays coming up, or simply want to show you care, we have the perfect crypto gift idea for you. Get your loved ones the perfect way to get into crypto (or to grow their existing holdings) by gifting them a Binance Gift Card. 

Binance Gift Card: What You Need to Know 

Like its name implies, the Binance gift card is a novel way to help you or a person of your choice get into crypto. Aimed predominantly at first-time crypto users (but everyone else is welcome too!), the gift card lets them send and receive crypto via email or text messages. The gift card also provides plenty of customization options, including preferred crypto and amount, personalized messages and exclusive designs—all of which can serve as ways for you to show the people how much you care about them and their taste, or as a way for you to express yourself. 

For senders to create a gift card, all they have to do is transfer some funds from their spot wallet to their funding wallet, then enter the token and the desired amount on the Create page and confirm with their 2FA code. When the amount is deducted from your funding account, the gift card is created successfully, at no extra fee to you. You can also buy a gift card for someone else using just your email or your phone! 

Sending the gift card can be a separate process (though you’ll be prompted to send it immediately after creating as well). When you open the Gift Card page on your account, you can click on the Send option, choose whether you want to send it via email or text message, then fill in the required recipient information. It doesn’t matter whether the recipient is already a Binance user or not—you can send the card to anyone you want, and then maybe help them sign up as well! 

When you receive funds from a gift card and redeem it, they are automatically transferred to your funding wallet. From there, you can simply move them to the wallets you want to trade with and start trading. There is no need to figure out how to move from personal wallets to the exchange, which makes it much more accessible for crypto newcomers. There are also no fees for redeeming, making this the perfect way to get started without any hidden uncomfortable surprises. The only thing to keep in mind is the fact that to redeem your gift card, you will have to sign up and complete the KYC process first if you’re not already registered on Binance.  

Why Buy the Card? 

The simplest answer to this question would be—because you want to show people you care about them. However, for most crypto enthusiasts, there are several more perks to the gift card. First, you’re helping speed along crypto adoption, especially if your recipient is someone who has no previous crypto experience, or simply left the space after one bear run too many. Additionally, you’re helping those who aren’t necessarily crypto savvy get started by registering with a global, secure exchange that most have already heard of.  

Another significant perk of choosing a crypto gift card is that it solves the problem of choosing a good present in an elegant way; it is unlikely someone will be unhappy with a gift card since they get to choose what they spend it on, yet you show them you care. You’re still giving them a choice between the incredible number of assets available on Binance—and you’re taking away the difficult part of funding the wallet. What better way to make someone happy?
