Today is a big day for Coinbase Card. Not only are we celebrating the launch of the card in 10 new countries — bringing the grand total to 29 — we’re also excited to announce that customers can now spend using five additional assets, including XRP and BAT.

Coinbase customers in Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Hungary, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Poland, Romania, and Sweden will now be able to spend their crypto balance using a contactless Visa debit card in millions of locations worldwide.

We’ve also more than doubled the number of assets available to spend - going from 4 to 9. XRP, BAT, REP, ZRX, and XLM wallets can now be used to buy anything from coffee to Christmas shopping. These five new assets join BTC, ETH, BCH, and LTC.

Spending crypto as easily as money in your bank account is exactly what Coinbase Card lets you do. But for us, it doesn’t stop there. Spending summaries, combined with our brand new monthly statements feature, make tracking your crypto spend easy.

To get started, download the iOS or Android app today and securely sign in using your Coinbase account. Once a Coinbase Card has been requested, customers can spend their crypto through the in-app card, before the contactless Coinbase Card arrives in the mail.

JD Millwood, Head of Marketing at Coinbase UK:

“Since launching earlier this year, Coinbase Card has helped tens of thousands of users spend their crypto as easily as the money in their bank accounts. With Christmas approaching, the demand for Coinbase Card will be will higher than ever. As a result, we’ve increased the number of cryptocurrencies that can be spent using Coinbase Card from 4 to 9, and expanded its availability to 10 more countries.”

Zeeshan Feroz, CEO at Coinbase UK:

“By more than doubling the number of assets our customers can spend on Coinbase Card, as well as introducing the card to 10 new countries, Coinbase continues to help drive crypto’s role as a utility, and not just an investment."
