By September, the card will be available in physical form too. More than 30 crypto coins, including BTC, ETH, and XRP, are currently offered by the company. It is the country’s first crypto payment card.

Mentioning that the thousands of customers have already signed up, Jordan Michaelides, Coinjar’s Head of Partnerships stated:
“We’ve already got people tagging us on Instagram that they’ve paid for their [groceries] with the card. I think the retail-led environment has been there for ages and we’ve finally got a solution to fix that problem we had,”
