The Binance Card presents a way for people to seamlessly use their cryptocurrency for everyday purchases. The cryptocurrency is converted to fiat instantly during the point of purchase. Users can also enjoy an 8% cashback in crypto on select purchases and zero ATM withdrawal fees.

“Payments is one of the first and most obvious use cases for crypto, yet adoption has a lot of room to grow. We believe the Binance Card is a significant step in encouraging wider crypto use and global adoption, and the openness of Brazilians to innovation makes the country a great market for this release,” said Guilherme Nazar, General Manager at Binance for Brazil.

According to the 2022 Mastercard New Payments Index, Brazil is one of the top countries in the world with an interest in crypto. “Brazilians are eager to embrace crypto beyond an investment asset. Today is an exciting step in our crypto journey, which draws on the strengths of both our trusted global network and Binance’s infrastructure to support consumer choice in payments,” said Marcelo Tangioni, Mastercard Country Manager, Brazil.
