bitmama crypto Cards

Bitmama, a Nigerian blockchain company has announced its latest product – Physical Crypto Cards making it the first cryptocurrency wallet in Africa to launch physical crypto cards. This also comes just three months after Bitmama successfully launched virtual crypto cards

“International payments for the average African is a complete hassle. This was quite evident during our team’s recent trip to Nairobi, Kenya for the African Tech Summit. While we paid for our flight tickets, visa fees, Airbnb, Bolt rides, and literally all forms of online payments with our Bitmama’virtual crypto cards, making the in-store payment was difficult as our local naira debit cards kept declining on POS devices and ATMs due to the $100/month FX spending limit on local cards, which has been recently lowered to $20/month by several local banks in Nigeria.” Akinbola Asalu, Chief Operating Officer at Bitmama stated when Speaking on the launch of Bitmama’s Physical Crypto Cards.

“Hence, we had to resort to holding physical dollars, which is tough to source, in order to convert to local currency at a BDC. Needless to say, this was the experience of the majority of international travelers at the event, who kept stopping by our booth to ask for physical cards. By popular request, we are again pleased to say that our physical crypto cards are here and have come to stay. Anyone can request and use these cards.”

As the first mainstream African blockchain company to launch physical crypto cards, this furthers Bitmama’s ambition to onboard the next billion crypto users by building lifestyle crypto products and pushing the narrative of crypto beyond trading.
