What is ANXPRO?
ANXPRO is a Bitcoin debit card issued by the blockchain company ANX International. The company is based in Hong Kong and launched in 2013. The main aim of the ANX International is to provide blockchain-based fintech solutions. ANXPRO started as a cryptocurrency exchange and still offers those services today.
The company has since then launched not only their Bitcoin debit card but also ABS, which is ANX Blockchain Services. ANX International has over 3 million happy customers spread across 50 countries. They’ve processed over 100 million transactions, and today we’re going to have a look at how their card measures up.
Since ANXPRO is a cryptocurrency exchange, they’re in a good position to issue a card. Users can set up an account on their exchange, which creates a wallet to hold their cryptocurrency. The wallet on ANXPRO is referred to as a ‘Vault,’ but functions like any other cryptocurrency wallet.
The ANXPRO app and exchange interface is intuitive and easy to use even for beginners. Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Stellar, and Ripple are among the cryptocurrency tokens its possible to trade with on ANXPRO.
The app is available for both iOS and Android, and allow you to manage your funds, trade on the exchange, and send Bitcoins. Sending Bitcoins is as easy as tapping the recipient’s Bitcoin address or scanning their QR code. They don’t even have to have a Bitcoin address — ANXPRO allows you to send Bitcoin via email like PayPal.
The wallet allows you to store frequently used addresses so you can quickly and easily send money. Finally, the app and wallet are connected to your ANXPRO Bitcoin debit card. The card works just like any regular Visa or Mastercard. You can use it to purchase items in-store or withdraw money from ATMs.
ANXPRO cards come in two varieties: Elite and Premium. Neither requires you to provide too many personal details, but you have to be in the United States. Getting your hands on an ANXPRO card is quite easy. You sign up on their website and order the card to your door.
Advantages of the ANXPRO Bitcoin debit cards
The ANX Elite card has no maximum card balance. It allows you to make unlimited transactions, both online and in-store. As an icing on the cake, the Elite card also has your name embossed.
The ANX Premium card allows you to make both online and in-store transactions. It also allows you to load it quickly, and you don’t pay a monthly fee.
Disadvantages of the ANXPRO Bitcoin debit cards
The card is only available in USD and for users located in the United States.
ANXPRO Bitcoin debit card fees
The ANX Elite card charges a flat rate of $3.50 for ATM withdrawals. In comparison, the Premium card costs you $7 or 1.5% per withdrawal, whichever one is higher.
ANXPRO looks like a good option for crypto fans based in the United States. For everyone else, it is unfortunately not an option. Quite a few card issuers have expanded their reach, however, so it’s possible that ANXPRO will eventually offer their card to the rest of us. The interface is easy, but the fees for using it are rather steep compared to other options.
