My experiences getting a new card..

XMLGOLD
After sending them BTC and paying for the card, going through a tedious KYC procedure, finally being approved, when asking for the delivery status they sent me this:

Dear Customer

We draw your attention to the suspension of the issue and maintenance of Prepaid Mastercard.
This decision was made by the issuer of Wave Crest Holdings Limited unilaterally and became an unpleasant surprise for all of us.

Closure of cards will occur in several stages:
1. Starting from 01/24/2018, applications for the issue and refilling of cards are no longer accepted.
2. Withdrawal of funds from cards is available until 23.03.18.
3. In the event of withdrawal of funds in ATM, new limits will apply: USD 1,000 / EUR for the SEPA region, USD 500 / EUR for the rest of the countries.

In the near future, we will have new cards, and all customers will be replaced for free with new cards.

We can either send You refund for the card You bought, or You can wait for a new card that will be free for You. New cards are expected to be ready during next month.

Wagecan
Also have to pay upfront, after 2 weeks still trying to get through the KYC procedure.. Documents get rejected for various reasons (not in color, not in english, no QR code on it..etc..)

ADVcash
Also were using wavecrest.. They still accept BTC transfer, but when you want to load your card: Transfers to Advanced Cash USD cards are temporarily unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience.


TenX is promising new cards, so is XMLGold.. I have my doubts...  Maybe Bankera will succeed now that they own a bank..

I think I found a solution: https://revolut.com/r/ivorboma  (reflink)

KYC went pretty smooth. Delivered in 1 day (from UK to NL)

Card looks smooth.. Only your name on the front, number and other info on the back.. Chipped and NFC.

Here's some images:

You can't send Bitcoins to Revolut and withdraw cash from ATM.
And you can't send cash and withdraw to Bitcoins.

 -- Yes, I think what most people do is sell their BTC on gdax, then SEPA transfer euros to the Revolut, then either spend or withdraw to their normal bank account.  It's supposed to provide the interbank exchange rate for EUR to GBP for example.


Are there any debit cards that allow you to send your own BTC and load it to the card, then spend in stores, or withdraw cash at ATMs?  I think Spectrocoin (Bankera) may do this - How do their fees compare to other cards?  - https://spectrocoin.com/en/bitcoin-debit-card.html

I think an ideal card shouldn't charge for ATM withdrawals or POS transactions, and ideally there should be no limits on withdrawals or transactions.

If I understood well your question Mistertango is the card you are looking for. You can load it with Bitcoins from your own wallet, exchanger or something, it's exchanged to fiat currency immediately and then you can spend it in stores and on ATM. But still there is limit for monthly ATM withdrawal.

Why do you think so?

I have read reports that revolut blocks payments coming from crypto currency exchanges, namely kraken.

Did it work for you?

thanks man for having suggested me another useless card, another useless company who has my id cards.

you cannot top up with BTC; and of course you discover this at the end, they keep the topic very confused on website I think on purpose.

I know atleast two bitcoin debit card providers that are not affiliated with wave crest holdings.
1. Bitpay card https://bitpay.com/card/
2. Shift card https://www.shiftpayments.com/card

Don't know why you actually searching for bitcoin debit cards not issued by wave crest holdings.

Well maybe because Wave Crest Holdings is not reliable since they closed all their cards?

P.S. BitPay is also provided by Wave Crest Holdings.

My trust score has been ruined by fake negative reviews by lying users. Click on my "trust" and then "reference" to see for what exactly I got them.

Bitpay's American cards still work fine.

I'm looking for a GBP one. I'm not confident there'll ever be another one. This is a major pisser as it's so convenient for a hellhole like the UK with very limited choices.

If only Circle could be bothered to keep going.

I'd love to know what Wavecrest were doing wrong. They've thrown away a lot of business and it strikes me as very stupid to provoke Visa into giving them the boot.

Probably it was a silly reason used by visa and mastercard to shutdown crypto cards.
