Title: Bitcoin credit card?
Post by: pretendo on May 05, 2017, 04:47:10 AM
I remember hearing something about a bitcoin credit card. Like, one that you pay for everything with fiat on credit, and then you pay off your bill in bitcoin. So you never have to hold fiat if you don't want to.

What's the best/most reliable credit card that does this?

Here's the link of 2017 Bitcoin Debit Cards Review: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1410577.0
You can decide yourself which one you think to suit you well and pick it up, There's also some bitcoin debit card issuers which are recently released its service and haven't mentioned in the sites, but yeah, pick the well-known issuers I recommend.

Well, those are debit cards. I want a credit card.

What specific country do you live. Maybe you should try coins.ph because they offer a virtual card that almost same to credit card that allows you to pay your bills using your bitcoin, But this only applicable on asian countries. ;)

I can see problems with this. Bitcoin is unregulated and therefore there could be issues when someone refuses to pay his bill.

Sorry for my mistake.
But, I'm afraid bitcoin credit card is not available, it's clear that for the legal bank to approve the application of credit card issuance is kinda strictly selective and as the problem have been mentioned by Emoclaw which possibly occur and there's no way a company could handle this and the company (if do exists) will seem to set requirement as strict as bank. But well, let's hope some guys come up with this information.

This is an absolutely ridiculous idea. Bitcoins represent a solution to everything that is wrong with credit cards. Why would you do that? It's a downgrade.

Also, those function more like debit cards. A Bitcoin "credit card" is not really a thing because credit cards need a centralized bank to run transactions, and Bitcoin is decentralized. You can buy gift cards or preloaded credit cards using Bitcoin, but there's no way for you to have a legitimate "Credit card", as that implies you have to pay the amount you spend in a bill to a collection agency. Your question is badly worded.

Like, one that you pay for everything with fiat on credit, and then you pay off your bill in bitcoin

This is really confusing. What do you mean by this? You pay with fiat and then pay again with Bitcoin?

Long back​one of the signature campaign provided its users with free bitcoin cards on registration. It is same as the debit card that we use with limited access to stores. I haven't come across any credit card issued with bitcoin as the value stored. Possibly in future we may get the service when banks directly starts accepting bitcoin.

I am currently using Uquid's virtual credit card service and I don't have issues with it. One can top up the credit card with bitcoin and spend the amount in fiat currencies. I was concerned about acceptability on the social media sites for advertisements but it worked fine. They charge $1 flat monthly charges and it is reasonable in my opinion.

I am curious how this works? Do they charge you interest on the outstanding amount and how much is this per month? Is this linked to any of the bigger Credit card companies, like VISA or MasterCard? Do you pay in bitcoin or in Fiat? The business model must be very strong to survive Bitcoin volatility or are this being pushed onto the consumers?

In a months time, 1 bitcoin's price can rise or drop with a significant amount.  ???

OP want credit card not debit card like uquid provides. And i don't think there is any service out there that deliver credit cards where you can settle your credit card loan with bitcoin. Don't have idea why OP is asking about this, anyone can exchange their btc to fiat and pay those bills in fiat.

I'd say either Wirex or Xapo.

Maybe Coinsbank, but I have never used them myself so I can't really comment on their quality of their product or anything like that. I've only touched Xapo which has worked for me every time if you are willing to provide some ID, and Wirex is one of the oldest anonymous CC providers around, you don't even need to submit your ID.

They were called e-coin before they rebranded.

If you want to pay your bills, look onto localbitcoins. In my country there are always offers to pay your bills for bitcoin on there, and for a pretty good price as well.

Yes, I don't think bitcoin credit cards exist. It would be too risky for the provider/payment system because of the bitcoin's volatility, and there will be no anonimity as the provider will have to know you very well to be sure that you'll pay back.

I think you understood wrong about XAPO because they never allow you to spend first and then you can pay them instead you need to load bitcoins first and then you can use their debit cards for purchases or you can even withdraw fiat currency from ATMs. But remember each and every transaction using these cards will have some fee and sometimes it may be quite high you're doing a small amount transactions. I use this card for urgent cash withdrawal from ATM's but never purchased anything online yet, and you can also use this card to your PayPal account.

Bill repayments done in bitcoin... Well not anything that I'm aware of, every single service I know requires you to prepay.

I wouldn't say that Xapo is the best way to get your coins into a prepaid debit card... What you said about ID, people are usually reluctant to provide their ID in the bitcoin sphere because that's what bitcoin is designed against in the first place. With localbitcoins you have a high risk of getting charged back.

The fees for using Bitcoin debit cards are pretty hideous usually.
I have an unactivated Bit-X one lying around somewhere, I might use it some time, but there are fees for activating, and everytime it is used, or if it isn't used!

I don't know how exactly a Bitcoin credit card would work. You want to amass debt, then pay it off with Bitcoin?  Apart from the fact that that seems to be against the tenants of Bitcoin, I don't think that banks are involved enough in Bitcoin to make it a viable option in the near future.

I haven't heard of any Bitcoin credit card but I'm actually using a Bitcoin virtual card. Actually it is a VISA Card that can be found on my online wallet. My wallet provider has tied up with VISA to allow them to create a virtual card. I'm loading it with Bitcoin then I can use to purchase online.

There is no bitcoin debit card because those wallets are what they are, a bitcoin wallet/exchange, not a bank, or something else with the ability to deliver credits.

Bitcoin credit card is just like giving loan for that we need lot of security measures if not the users will not pay back, and that is why i think no one have started the Bitcoin credit card system.

There are no trusted bitcoin credit cards as of now as the merchants may risk their money is the user does not pays back the bitcoins.
Maybe till such a service is available you may stick to using debit cards that need to load up the balance before hand.
btw, I use spectrocoin debit card.

Maybe you heard about the project calledTokencard? It is a debit card. (http://tokencard.io (http://tokencard.io))
The team is developing a card which enables online payments, PoS transactions and ATM withdrawals. The Bitcoin is automatically transferred into dollars, on the value of the actual Bitcoin price. I believe they had their ICO a few days ago.

Whatever; I don't believe that there is a change that we will see a big player on the financial market introducing a creditcard of Bitcoin in the near future. I don't think Financial institutions are dying to create a creditcard like that- at least, for the time being.  ::) For the past years banks are getting more and more familiar with Bitcoin. Furthermore, I question the expectation that risk of people not paying back with bitcoin credit is higher than people with regular VISA/Mastercards. The blockchain improves this transparency. Hope we will see something like this in the future, because it is quiet interesting....  ;D

I agree with what you have said. I will be really glad if there will be a bitcoin credit card available for us to use. It will be surely convenient and less hassle for people. But I guess it will be hard to process this kind of ideas nowadays. Companies need to be secured about peoples background informations if we're wanted and going to push this.

Post by: hankyulpark on May 05, 2017, 06:01:57 PM
I know some companies that provide this service, but as prepaid cards (you have to keep a balance there). In two of them (Wirex and Xapo) you can keep your balance in BTC and spend it on the go. On Advcash, you can deposit your BTC, but need to exchange it for fiat before you can use it.

Actually, when someone uses their credit card to buy stuff and make a payment for the merchant, the merchant itself will receive full payment because all is already paid by the bank and the credit card owner will be charged in form of credit periodically. Therefore, the merchants are risk-free, the one which will burden the risk of the uncomplete bill is the bank.

I also do not have any such cards available for bitcoins but the OP question of credit card is really a good idea. Credit card means you can get bitcoins on credit and they you pay after a month. This will be really helpful for those who need bitcoins urgently or you can get advance bitcoins and get them increase by trading etc.

Credit cards need a reliable source from certain legal bank, if implemented in bitcoin will not be maximal and not legally enforceable, I think it will be very brutal and irregular. True if you prefer to debit card because logically more useful and can be in top up and withdraw.

There will never ever be a long lasting bitcoin credit card provider. If there is one, it is running a scam.

When there is a credit, there must be interest. Nobody gives away his money for nothing. If a bank gives you money, they expect a profit in return. This can't work with bitcoin because bitcoin's supply is limited and the price is too volatile. Bank can lose all of its shit while lending bitcoins.

I must say as well that I do not think credit card system with bitcoin will work.
The companies want to make profit, and they want tomake sure profit.
The only scenario that works for the companies are the prepaid credit cards.
You upload bitcoins, they convert it into fiat and you can pay until no money is left.
I have tested it once, and it worked as promised.

Not really, if the bitcoin credit card provider also asks for KYC how different will this be to a bank offering credit cards? The problem will likely be when it provides the service without guarantee that they will be paid, like if it will be anonymous. We can always use bitcoin virtual credit cards anyway if we really needed a credit card.

There are plenty of alternatives.  I know coinsbank and having used them for a while i found it a very solid alternative next to my mastercard. Offcourse there are always things to improve (i.e. the high fees) but in the end it's doing it's thing.. Being a bitcoin credit card

Maybe it will be possible to have a bitcoin credit card but bitcoin is not consider to use as  debit card by bank. Bank is always looking for their security when it terms of debit their only accept a fiat. But its a good thinking to have bitcoin credit card.

Since something like this is sti very risky I don't think that companies like Visa or Master Card would be interested to support Bitcoin credit cards. And debit cards are different story.

Yeah this is really cool idea and despite of it's difficulty, I think there is a ways on how creditors will be obliged to pay for their debts if ever we have this bitcoin credit card. There will be a strong pre requisite prior having a btc credit card, due to an anonymous identity of those customers that might scam the credit card obligations on payment dues. Those bigger companies will take time to study bitcoin first before they implement this such thing in order to avoid future circumstances to happen.

Involving banks actually destroys the whole concept of bitcoins being decentralized. The bank will start to regulate bitcoins and will have to control your coins if they are get to involved.
It is highly unlikely to happen to get a bitcoin credit card cause someone will have to regulate the coins. More over people will get scammed very easily due to how bitcoins work. Debit Cards are the only option currently available.

This is not a bad idea, but I'm afraid it can be applied, because bitcoin transactions need a certain amount of time to be validated. If that still exists, we can not apply bitcoin to the credit card. Also, bitcoin is a very valuable coin, what if you were robbed? It is dangerous!

You may have mistakenly assumed that there is no such type of credit card as Bitcoin. If so, it will completely overcome Bitcoin's slow transaction status

What do you mean? Did you mean that when people pay in bitcoins then the prices suddenly went up before he was able to pay, that would be a problem?

I think the better analysis here is that the bitcoin credit card will convert bitcoins to fiat as you pay with it. Then it is directly debited from your card. Well this is generally a debit card now.

charge super high fees for paying another currecy that dollars or even for withdrawing money from an atm.
There are even super high charges for making a bitcoin card , the best thing to do is just withdraw your bitcoins to cash and make you local credit card payments with those cash

Bitcoin credit card is not available right now, and even IMO it will be very difficult to even make it available, as to provide a Credit Card, the applicant has to assure that he is capable of returning the money. And to verify, government support and help of some kind of Banking/Financial service who will supports Bitcoin will be required.
Japan and few others who legally accepted Bitcoin can only provide such kind of services I think as of now.

Exactly, people should know that digital currency is not necessarily Bitcoin because there are a lot of fiats that are digitally loaded on a card and are allowed to be spent without carrying physical cash on you. There's actually no credit card with Bitcoin, maybe a debit card with Bitcoin but I haven't come across that yet.

I donít think there are bitcoin credit cards, just think about it, the name itself implies that you could receive credit for it, but do you think any bank is going to give you credit if they do not know who you are? So the only cards that exist are bitcoin debit cards.

Bitcoin debit card is still very much possible but not credit card. The reason for bitcoin in the first place was borne out of the failure of the banking system which cannot be unlinked to the fact that people get to spend more than what they have as a result of credit card thereby throwing the whole world into financial crises which I believe might face bitcoin if that should happen considering the fact that tracing people to redeeem their debt will likely be impossible.

Yes bitcoin debit card is possible but credit card it is impossible. If Bitcoin banks open then it is possible. Yes, we have many banks in our country, and they are suffering a lot to collect the due amount of the credit card holders. So if Bitcoin credit card comes means everyone will apply and use, but no one will pay credit card bill. Because there is no banks to control this bitcoin money.

I'd say either Wirex or Xapo.

Maybe Coinsbank, but I have never used them myself so I can't really comment on their quality of their product or anything like that. I've only touched Xapo which has worked for me every time if you are willing to provide some ID, and Wirex is one of the oldest anonymous CC providers around, you don't even need to submit your ID.

They were called e-coin before they rebranded.

If you want to pay your bills, look onto localbitcoins. In my country there are always offers to pay your bills for bitcoin on there, and for a pretty good price as well.

I would be careful with localbitcoins.  A lot of people are getting in trouble with the law for running an "unlicensed money transfer service". Having someone pay your bills for you by using localbitcoins could be against the law in your state. All depends of course on the local laws.

Bitpay has a debit card you ca  load and make payments with. It lets you hook it up to many accounts.

Monaco card i think is coming out with a 10% rewards card(current bid for one is 200,000USD).

Basically I got the credit card from spectrocoin.com like a few weeks back and it is working great. To be honest I expected a cool design though it was just a simple prepaid visa credit card.

What it seems that they do is that they buy prepaid cards for your name and ship them to your address? Then you just deposit your bitcoins to their website and exchange it with the current exchange rate. What they do then is they load your prepaid card with fiat not with the bitcoins (basically you use fiat not bitcoin then) so it can be used in all the shops that accept cards.

To be honest I don't feel like I'm spending my money in a better way than just doing it with fiat. It would be the same thing as just trading my bitcoins on an exchange and loading my regular credit card.

I haven't seen a card like this, and I don't think many payment remitters would be willing to offer a product like this. It's too easy to simply get a credit line on a regular credit card, which will most likely have a higher limit, and pay the bill after the fact in bitcoin. You could even use a bitcoin debit card to pay the bitcoin credit bill, if you didn't have a way to convert the btc.to fiat.

A credit card that you can pay off in btc doesn't really have any advantages over a regular credit card, they would be the same instrument.

Credit Card for bitcoins from my point of view would be dealing with a lot of issues so I think it would impossible for now. This is probably because bitcoins not that regulated properly since banks don't have a control over bitcoins. This is also because flow of bitcoins cannot be monitored that easily and for that reason you will find it hard to scan every credit card users identity unless some people are willing to do so or they decided to set people on this kind of job. On the other hand having a debit card would be a much better option and already have been done by other online wallets.

To be able to create a bitcoin credit card, there should be a private company funding such, and that also defeats the purpose of bitcoin eluding banksters as they will be creating a similar service integrating bitcoin as well. Debit cards do exist, though you need to load it up every time you want to spend it in stores that accepts Visa or Mastercard as payment.

There is not too much of a difference because in essence you are doing the same, you are converting your bitcoin to fiat first, so its no wonder it does not fell any different to you, but at least you have a debit card that you can use almost anywhere and you donít have to carry cash.

We already have some Bitcoin Debit Cards on the market and this is so feasible because you have to deposit Bitcoin into your own wallet provided by the issuer of the card. Now, with credit card, I am sure nobody has yet thought about it because you can have a big problem with volatility...meaning what you borrowed today may not be the same value tomorrow because Bitcoin right now is exploding to say the least.

Now, if the idea is to borrow Bitcoin so you can invest the same somewhere then maybe you can just borrow fiat money and buy Bitcoin and in that way you are not being hampered by the great volatility issue of Bitcoin.

I am not expert on this matter though so this is just my simple idea...and that is a disclaimer.

I think bitcoin credit card is a nice idea to all bitcoin users because you can withdraw your money instantly and easily.

I guess in the near future there will be a credit card that can use of all bitcoin users.

The thing is that the OP wants a legit credit card - one that you can take out loans from.

This is probably not going to happen with any bitcoin implementation because bitcoin is irreversible and credit cards are not. So a person can get cash advances easily, using perhaps stolen credentials. There is no way the credit card company can do anything about it. They can't reverse it because bitcoin blockchain is not reversible.

Also you have to consider that people using stolen docs to open accounts is going to be a huge problem. How will the company issuing these cards ensure that everyone is legit and will pay their dues? There is nothing preventing them from using fake ID cards etc. to open an account and scam. That's why bitcoin debit cards are popular but no credit cards out there.

Definitely possible in the near future. If people are able to get cards with multiple currencies, then definitely BTC is possible. However, due to the ever-fluctuating conditions of BTC, it's hard for people to implement such credit systems in Bitcoin due to its volatility. But once it's more stable and there's more control, then I guess it's possible then.

If the problem is because of the volatility of bitcoin. The issuer could simply just set USD as their main currency and for every transaction to make it simple and resolve all of these matters.
The only main reason of why bitcoin "credit card" hasn't been existed yet is because there's no guarantee that people who use the "credit card" will want to pay back without make some fraud requests or even just drop the bills blindly.
We're not talking about debit card but the real "credit card" ones which don't require you to load the cards but to pay the bills based on agreement and within time intervals.

because bitcoin is decentralized i am not sure in the future there are service bitcoin credit card
to payment something, but actually that is good chance business.

Bitcoin credit card is just like giving loan for that we need lot of security measures if not the users will not pay back, and that is why i think no one have started the Bitcoin credit card system.

According to my credit card bitcoin is a good solution by providing loans for many purposes and also as a means of security if the user will pay need not bring. but still we have to limit its use so that you are not surprised when paying the invoice

Before choosing any of those companies/that offer these services read the reviews from people that are using it recently.

Wirex/E-coin is a good service too, the users sometimes are having issue but they have a thread here and are active in solving the users' issues.

The risk is so enormous , the benefits to the crediting issuer would need to be a predatory rate to be worth it, so it probably will be hard to find credit like this in crypto.  Removing the centralized banking system does reduce the need for a lot of the usual credit card style spending though.  Credit reports and credit bureaus have their grip over the people they indebt, even worse then the hard hand of traditional banks.  I just don't see a social security number and credit report as a part of my crypto-coin world.  Curious to see how your results we're in the hunt though!

Bitcoin can see or can use only on the internet. Using bitcoin credit card in anywhere else was a good idea but how to do so? Bitcoin is unregulated and no one can control bitcoin, it is unregulated virtual currency. Bitcoin price also dynamically in every minute, sometimes in just a second. Bitcoin debit card needs an enhancement and makes it better one from other credit cards. It is also hard to make it and to implement in every nation. Must study on this one to make it successful.

I remember hearing something about a bitcoin credit card. Like, one that you pay for everything with fiat on credit, and then you pay off your bill in bitcoin. So you never have to hold fiat if you don't want to.

What's the best/most reliable credit card that does this?

What specific country do you live. Maybe you should try coins.ph because they offer a virtual card that almost same to credit card that allows you to pay your bills using your bitcoin, But this only applicable on asian countries. ;)
Virtual card will become a shadow of physical credit card if you are going to look at it physically. But they are both useful in online payment, like shopping online, travel online, billings payment, and I don't know if credit card is the as virtual card in coins.ph maybe in some other forms of aspects.

Definitely possible in the near future. If people are able to get cards with multiple currencies, then definitely BTC is possible. However, due to the ever-fluctuating conditions of BTC, it's hard for people to implement such credit systems in Bitcoin due to its volatility. But once it's more stable and there's more control, then I guess it's possible then.
As bitcoin is going to its higher level it will not take so much long that bitcoin cards will  be introduce to us.
As bitcoin is being so common now a days and almost all banks are accepting it and thatís why we can hope for bitcoin card in very real soon.

I guess debit card was possible actually we already have that in our country a virtual card which you can store a bitcoin in the card. But i guess bitcoin credit card have no basis if there are company going to do this they need information in their clients if they can pay there credits.

Here if you will try to join the bitcoin or another cryptocurrency with the fiat then you should be clearly need to understand that the services for the fiat currency changes from country to country because all the countries have not same fiat currency .
So if you are looking for the best bitcoin credit card then it will be more better to ask in your community about it because they know very well ( if any person will be in this forum who used from your country then may be he can tell you ) .
Here you need to mention your country .
Here I myself from India and can use some bitcoin credit card system but I don't think that they are trusted because thier trust are small thinkable , but I tried only once and after I don't need at all .
Here I am regularly using zebpay wallet where I can make payment of most of my bills directly and I don't need also to long ago because the service is instant ( than why I should go for the credit card like system ) .

C3 (CCCR) will be a great option, doing an ICO right now (my review of their ecosystem (https://acecryptura.com/cccr-ico-crypto-credit-card-review/)).
