A London startup is launching a debit card that lets you spend bitcoin and ethereum

“A London-startup headed by a Credit Suisse veteran is launching a new debit card that it claims will allow people to spend cryptocurrencies across the UK. The London Block Exchange (LBX) launched on Tuesday” writes Oscar Williams-grut for businessinsider.com. While LBX is one of the first companies to offer a cryptocurrency card in the UK, it is likely to soon face competition.The Visa card, which will be issued by Gibraltar-based pre-paid card provider Wavecrest, will be linked to an app that allows users to buy and hold cryptocurrencies through the LBX exchange. Revolut, the well-funded foreign exchange startup, is developing cryptocurrency trading capacities within its app and may well let consumers spend the currencies on its prepaid card.It plans to launch a sterling-to-cryptocurrency exchange and a Visa debit card, dubbed “Dragoncard,” that will allow people to spend bitcoin, ethereum, ripple, litecoin and monero across the UK. The startup plans to add more cryptocurrencies in future.
