The First Credit Card with Rewards in Bitcoin, Ethereum, and More

Cryptocurrency Patent Forecast®

Blockrize just received its first patent application publication for a cryptocurrency loyalty program.

How does it work? Much like typical credit cards, cardholders would receive cryptocurrency for completing transactions with Blockrize's specialized payment card. However, the main difference between traditional cards and Blockrize's card is that Blockrize does not require the card-issuing financial institution to directly issue the cryptocurrency.

Blockrize's card will initially support cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Litecoin. The launch is currently scheduled for 2020.
