The Uphold debit Mastercard® is a world-first debit card that can be linked to an Uphold account holding cryptocurrencies, precious metals, FX, equities, and more. Such assets are seamlessly converted to fiat currencies to be spent through the card. Anyone in the U.S. can sign-up to join the waitlist for early access to this groundbreaking debit card.

The Uphold Card is available as a physical and virtual debit card that makes otherwise unspendable asset classes usable in everyday transactions. Cardholders can toggle between 50+ assets seamlessly within the Uphold Card App, as well as tap to spend using their virtual card. 

The Uphold Card has been in beta since late 2019 – check out the feedback from program members: 

‘I just made my first purchase on @amazon using the @UpholdInc digital asset debit card. The fees are ZERO, and the exchange rate (spread) aligned perfectly with both Kraken and Coinbase. The process was seamless and no different than any other purchase. THANK YOU @UpholdInc!!!’ – Twitter User

‘Excellent program. The future is here!!! I’m with Uphold for life. Uphold will meet all of my banking and financial needs when all is said and done.’ 

Benefits of the Uphold Card include:

  • Spend any asset from your Uphold wallet: national currency like USD or GBP, cryptocurrency like bitcoin, XRP, a commodity like gold, and more. 
  • Withdraw your assets as cash at any Mastercard ® network ATM worldwide. 
  • Use the Uphold Card app to access card details, temporarily freeze your card, change your PIN, and breakdown spending by category.

“If you’ve ever wanted to buy a bicycle with crypto, or groceries with gold, now you can,” explained Uphold C.E.O., J.P. Thieriot. “The Uphold Card is a milestone for our users and the cryptocurrency industry. Here, at last, is a debit card that transforms the utility of cryptocurrencies and other traditionally ‘unspendable’ assets by making them readily usable in everyday life.”

For the first time, one debit card will allow holders to spend any asset in their Uphold wallet how they want, whenever they want. The Uphold Card represents a milestone for Uphold and will transform the utility of your Uphold account.
