According to Christian Rau, Senior Vice President of Mastercard’s Crypto and Fintech Enablement, they are happy to be collaborating with hi to support market innovation and allow these customizable cards together with the security and protection users have come to expect from Mastercard.
Specific NFT collections, like CryptoPunks, Moonbirds, Goblins, Bored Apes, and Azukis, are only supported by the NFT avatar customization. Other collections, however, may be added in the near future.
There are several types of hi NFT debit cards available (Basic, Black, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond), each with a unique set of advantages relying on membership status. Earning boosts, spending rewards, and enrollment in lifestyle subscriptions are among the benefits.
NFT customization is available to Gold members and above, allowing users to personalize the face of the card with an NFT avatar that users verifiably own, as long as it meets Mastercard’s card design guidelines.
Staking hi’s token earns user membership, which starts at less than 10 Euros.
The hi Debit Card will initially be accessible to hi members in over 25 EEA countries, as well as in the UK.
