Introducing SORA Card
A unique, self-custodial crypto debit card, built for the interoperable future
The SORA community is proud to introduce a unique, self-custodial crypto wallet featuring full compatibility with the Polkaswap DEX, seamlessly integrated with IBAN (tradfi) and debit card functionality–all in one place, in the palm of your hand!
Designed with Polkadot’s spirit of interoperability at heart and built by the SORA community, SORA Card delivers an experience exceeding even the best mobile tradfi platforms to any and every cryptocurrency holder who values freedom, ownership, and privacy. SORA Card aims to offer everything you expect from a cryptocurrency-backed card, without compromising your control over your own assets.
Spend, buy, earn, sell, stake, and trade all your favorite crypto assets, all in one place, and the palm of your hand.
Launching this year, our mission is to accelerate your financial freedom through maximum ownership and access to your assets with the highest privacy standards. Furthermore, SORA Card aims to provide the easiest fiat gateway to the Polkadot ecosystem and significantly increase adoption.
Contemporary cryptocurrency-enabled cards are integrated into a custodial wallet and linked to a centralized exchange. This means users neither control nor manage their assets and keys. Centralized decisions can impact a user’s freedom to decide what to do with those assets–just think about multi-day withdrawal freezes that often occur on centralized exchanges! Furthermore, these entities also store your personal data harvested during the KYC process and link it to your trading activity.
Users are forced to limit their freedom, asset ownership, and data privacy in exchange for the privilege of spending, earning, and buying and using their hard-earned crypto and fiat in the same wallet. Other services like Revolut are also centralized and limit crypto-based use cases.
SORA Card is a fiat wallet and debit card that will integrate into the Polkaswap DEX and the self-custodial SORA Wallet. Later on, the solution will be integrated into Fearless Wallet — the DeFi wallet for the Dotsama ecosystem. This will offer TradFi and DeFi together in one application, which will significantly improve the user experience and can grow adoption.
SORA Card will allow you to manage your own crypto and fiat assets, in a decentralized and self-custodial way, pushing the boundaries of what is possible within global regulatory frameworks.
Access to SORA Card, wallet, and IBAN will be offered by and to the SORA community, subsidized for the first 5,000 users you just have to pay usage fees conforming to standard market prices.
SORA Card will initially be available for EUR currency use, allowing access to 90 million merchants globally, expanding to other fiat currencies later.
It is our goal to increase the user base and adoption of the Dotsama ecosystem, including all its parachains. We do this by offering the easiest fiat gateway to all parachain tokens via Polkaswap, with a crypto wallet, IBAN, and fiat wallet with debit card functionality, all under your control and accessible with your private keys.
Not familiar with the Polkadot space just yet? You are still in for a treat:
The SORA network has the best live Ethereum <-> Substrate bridge (the HASHI bridge), and a new multi-EVM network bridge is currently being tested and will soon be released. Using SORA technology, SORA Card will give you access to all your favourite tokens on EVM networks, such as the BNB Smart Chain, Avalanche, Klaytn, Fantom Opera, Energy Web Chain, OKX Chain, and more!
