According to Nexo, the Nexo Card will be the first card in the world “spend” their cryptocurrencies without actually spending it. The Nexo card will not be designed in a way that it will not consider annual, monthly or foreign exchange fees.
“When you purchase an item using the Nexo card, you essentially make payments by using your Nexo revolving open-ended credit line that is supported with your crypto holdings, and by doing that, you are not selling any of your cryptos. This will give users of the Nexo card the freedom to spend heir crypto values today and sell their holdings whenever they wish to in the future so that they can pay back the loan”, Nexo said while describing how the card operates.
