Bitcoin Payments Leader BitPay Releases Prepaid Visa® USD, GBP, and EUR Debit Cards for Bitcoin Users in New Countries Around the World

NEW YORK — MAY 22, 2017 — Today bitcoin payments leader BitPay announced that it now offers its award-winning BitPay Visa® Prepaid Debit Card for bitcoin users in more than multiple new countries around the world.

The BitPay Card makes it possible for users to convert bitcoin into a spendable dollar, euro, or pound balance on a Visa® Prepaid Debit Card in just minutes. The Card solves a major problem for early blockchain payments adopters: how to convert Bitcoin received, earned, or saved into a balance spendable with everyday Visa®-accepting merchants and Visa®-compatible ATMs.

The Card is significantly more convenient, more affordable, and faster — by an order of days — than many online exchange methods for bitcoin today. The BitPay Card’s recent integration with BitPay’s true bitcoin wallet allows users to convert bitcoin funds to dollars, euros, or pounds on the card in one in-app swipe. It’s no surprise that the BitPay Card has been a hit with the US bitcoin community and the prepaid card world, winning a Pay Awards 2017 Judge’s Choice Award.

Today’s news makes the BitPay Card the first prepaid Visa® debit card available for BitPay users in both the United States and in major bitcoin-using countries around the world. With a growing bitcoin user base and a bitcoin market cap of $36 billion, the BitPay Card is poised to become a powerful spending tool for bitcoin users.

Bitcoin users who wish to order the BitPay Card can apply at bitpay.com today.
