New Debit Card Offers Real-Time Bitcoin Conversions in UK

August 13, 2015         Written By Bill Hardekopf

Bit-X has introduced a new debit card in the United Kingdom that promises real-time Bitcoin conversions for its users. The cards can be used anywhere debit cards are accepted, including online stores, ATMs and most major retailers.

Several Bitcoin debit cards have come to market over the last couple years, but Bit-X claims their card is unique. Users can add or pull money from their accounts in many different formats. As part of the company’s promotion, they are currently offering this conversion service with no trading fees through the end of August. The debit cards must be designated as Euro or U.S. Dollar, but they can be used and ordered from any country in the world.

Another unique feature of the new Bitcoin debit card is that it can be used even if you do not have a verified account. Transaction types and amounts are limited for unverified account holders, giving people the opportunity to access their funds before their accounts are confirmed.

While Bitcoins are not quite as popular in the United States, the fact that these cards can be used around the world also gives Americans the chance to convert their cryptocurrency in real-time. Those looking for an alternative to the numerous mobile wallets preparing to hit the market may turn to Bitcoins for their financial transactions.
