Finder Crypto Debit and Crypto Credit Card Awards 2022

The Finder Crypto Debit Cards and Crypto Credit Cards Awards recognize crypto card products that offer the best value for consumers and have continued to thrive despite a tumultuous 2022 crypto market.

Finder’s banking and credit card experts reviewed more than 20 crypto card products on the market, rating each one based on over 10 criteria associated with debit cards, credit cards and cryptocurrency.

Products that rated highest in a given category earned the winning placement for our awards, with those coming close landing our “highly commended” picks.

Here are our inaugural winners for 2022.

Best Crypto Debit Card: Juno

Juno offers a great combination of flexible rewards, a strong APY and minimal fees, creating an all-around package that makes it a great choice for just about anyone interested in a crypto debit card. Achieving the card’s premium tier for rewards is as simple as setting up $250 a month in direct deposits, and you can earn up to 6% USDC yield or 3% BTC or ETH yield with no yearly limit.

Best Crypto Credit Card: BlockFi Card

The BlockFi Bitcoin Rewards Credit Card was among the first crypto credit cards on the market and remains the best example of what a well-rounded and useful crypto credit card looks like. It offers up to a $100 signup bonus in crypto and several perks associated with holding and trading crypto — features that competitors have been unable or unwilling to replicate. Spend $30,000 on your card in a year, and BlockFi boosts your rewards rate from 1.5% to 2% on all eligible purchases.

  3. Deposit methods. We considered the number of deposit methods available.
  4. ATM transaction fee. We looked at how much cardholders pay to use an ATM.
