Review

The Coinbase Card is a Visa debit card you can order from Coinbase UK for customers in the UK and EU. With it you can use ATMs and make payments anywhere Visa cards are accepted.

If you have an account at the Coinbase cryptocurrency exchange, the Coinbase Card lets you spend funds in your Coinbase account, meaning you can spend the cryptocurrency in your Coinbase account like you spend your other money.

You'll need to download the Coinbase Card app for iOS or Android to use your card.

Coinbase is authorised as an e-money firm by the UK regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). But its crypto exchange isn't operated from the UK and isn't on the FCA's register of crypto firms which have passed its anti-money laundering checks.

Pros

  • Link the card to your Coinbase account and activate it, then you’re good to go.
  • The card is accepted anywhere a standard Visa debit card is.
  • It’s just like a standard debit card, except for crypto. You can even tap and go with it.

Cons

  • High fees, ranging from 2.49–5.29% per transfer.
