Nexo Card is linked to the instant crypto line of credit backed by Nexo. It allows users to spend without selling their digital assets. The funds come from the user’s available line of credit, but the wallet remains intact – the cryptos in the wallet serve as collateral to spend their value at merchants. Users can have one or more cryptocurrencies and stablecoins as collateral and pay up to 90% of their crypto value via Nexo Card.
