Gemini announces ‘Blockrize card’
Cryptocurrency exchange Gemini is acquiring Blockrize and announcing a new product based on Blockrize’s work. The company is launching a credit card that works like a regular credit card, but you earn bitcoin rewards based on your purchases. The credit card will be available to U.S. Customers will earn up to 3% in bitcoin rewards.
At the same time Curve, the London-based fintech that combines multiple cards and accounts into one smart card and an app, has secured a Series C round of $95 million. The fundraise brings the total investment in Curve to almost $175 million. Curve plans to use the funds to expand internationally, including to the US, and to deepen its European reach.
