Say hi to the world’s first NFT customisable card
Goblins and punks and apes, oh my! You can now personalise your debit card with NFT avatars.
Move aside band t-shirts and laptop stickers, now you can show off your hobbies and interests every time you make a payment.
In the latest development in the world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), Mastercard and crypto exchange hi are bringing them to the face of your debit card.
According to the crypto and fiat financial app, this is the world’s first debit card featuring “NFT avatar customisation”.
Why might you want a goblin, punk or ape on your debit card? Well…
“Not only do the NFT cards look amazing, this is a great way for people to show which online community they belong to, but in the real world,” hi co-founder Sean Rach said.
“The flexibility to spend fiat, stablecoins or other crypto, combined with attractive financial and lifestyle rewards, makes us confident that our card is a game-changer in the market.”
NFTs aside, the debit card is available in six tiers, ranging from basic to platinum, one per cent money back to 10 per cent.
You can get membership by staking hi’s token HI, which will give you the ability to spend fiat, stablecoins and other cryptocurrencies wherever Mastercard is accepted.
“As consumer interest in crypto and NFTs continues to grow, we are committed to making them an accessible payments choice for the communities who wish to use them,” Mastercard senior vice president, crypto and fintech enablement Christian Rau said.
“We are proud to be working with hi to continue to drive innovation in the market and enable these customizable cards together with the safety and security you’d expect from Mastercard.”
So if you have an NFT in your wallet you have been wishing you could show off whenever you get your debit card out, maybe this is for you.
Just make sure you are in hi’s gold tier of membership or above (platinum and diamond) and that you verifiably own your NFT avatar, otherwise, this is not something on the cards for you just yet.
