US Residents Can Now Get BlockFi Cards + More

The BlockFi Rewards Visa Signature Credit Card is now available to all eligible US residents, offering incredible benefits and unique opportunities for holders. And while those news are enough to make most customers hurry and sign up for their own BlockFi account (or log in again after a while), there’s more where that came from: several new tokens have launched on the platform, a fresh new look of the website greets old and new users alike, and new partnerships are paving the way for new opportunities.

Cards for US Residents

Most BlockFi users are already taking advantage of their BlockFi Interest Accounts (BIAs). However, to earn interest on your crypto, you would need to deposit it in this account, which comes down to HODLing—just not in your usual wallet. While this is an excellent opportunity for crypto enthusiasts who would otherwise be unsure what to do with their savings, it doesn’t necessarily drive crypto adoption on a wider scale.

Enter the BlockFi Rewards Visa Signature Credit Card. With a myriad of different offers, including cashback, interest, and a referral program, the card encourages you to spend all the money you usually would, but using bitcoins this time. In other words, you’re using BTC as the e-cash it was initially envisioned to be—Satoshi Nakamoto would be proud!

And to make sure you have ample reason to keep spending your hard-earned and cunningly invested BTC, BlockFi is offering you the following deals:

  • No annual fee and no foreign transaction fees
  • 3.5% back in BTC in your first three months (up to USD 100)
  • 1.5% back in BTC on everything
  • 2% back in BTC on every dollar over USD 50,000 of annual spend
  • Earn daily crypto interest that compounds monthly on all BTC earned
  • Trading bonus: 0.25% back in BTC on all eligible trades
  • USD 30 in BTC for every client referral, on top of the existing Refer-a-Friend program

All in all, you’re getting a significantly better deal than with fiat cards—and you’re helping drive crypto adoption, one purchase at a time. The company has shipped 20,000 cards in the first three weeks alone, and you can now register on the waitlist for your own physical card.

New Tokens + New Website + New Partnership

Many things are new at BlockFi. Along with a fresh new design, clients can now access Multi-Collateral Dai (DAI), Basic Attention Token (BAT), and Uniswap (UNI) on the platform. This means that they can also transfer each of the tokens to the interest account and start earning passive income, but also buy and sell each of the new tokens in exchange for other tokens available on the platform.

Additionally, the platform has partnered with upcoming NBA star Cade Cunningham, who was recently chosen by the Detroit Pistons as the first pick in the NBA Draft. He will collaborate with BlockFi on educational videos, promotional giveaways, exclusive interviews, and other efforts to raise awareness about the value of cryptocurrencies.

Special deal: BlockFi is currently offering a bonus which depends on the amount you deposit. This bonus can go up to USD 250 and it is paid directly into your account in BTC.
