Gemini launches crypto credit card with bitcoin awards

Cryptocurrency exchange Gemini is launching a credit card with cryptocurrency rewards in association with newly acquired crypto startup Blockrize. The Gemini Credit Card will allow consumers to earn up to 3 percent back in bitcoin, or other cryptocurrencies on every purchase they make.

Ahead of the credit card’s official launch later this year, Gemini has opened up the Gemini Credit Card waiting list. More than 10,000 Blockrize waitlist customers along with Gemini’s own customers will be provided with early access to the credit card.

“The Gemini Credit Card will make it easier for any consumer to invest in bitcoin and other cryptos without changing their existing behavior,” said Tyler Winklevoss, CEO of Gemini. “Rather than deciding how and when to buy crypto, customers can do so when making their everyday purchases. We’re excited to welcome the Blockrize team to Gemini and work together to continue to mainstream crypto.”
