Crypto app hi and Mastercard have launched the world’s first debit card with NFT avatar customisation, allowing cardholders to personalise their card with an NFT avatar that they verifiably own.
The card will initially be available to hi members in over 25 countries in the European Economic Area (EEA) as well as the UK. Membership is obtained by staking hi’s token.
hi’s upper tier members will be eligible for NFT avatar customisation from a limited range of NFT collections including CryptoPunks, Moonbirds, Goblins, Bored Apes and Azukis.
The hi debit card will be issued by London-based payments company Moorwand.
“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.
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,”
says Sean Rach, Co-Founder of hi.
“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,”
says Christian Rau, Senior Vice President, Crypto and Fintech Enablement at Mastercard.
