EverUp prepares UK card for crypto-gamified prizes

The debit card, which already has more than 5,000 people on its waiting list, will enable consumers to spend in fiat with a chance to earn cryptocurrencies and NFTs with every swipe. Crucially, the prize-linked debit card will enable and encourage consumers to store their loyalty rewards as value rather than spending them, which is a significant shift from the status quo.

• • • Successfully raised £1.05 million from several angel investors • • • • More than 14,000 registered users in the UK • • • • A significantly high app engagement time at circa 30 minutes per user per month• • • • £16,000 worth of gift cards sold since mid December 2021 to date•

Commenting on the business’ traction to date and vision, CEO and co-founder, Giuseppe Caltabiano of EverUp, said: “The world of NFTs and cryptocurrency can be intimidating, complex and inaccessible for the average consumer. We are here to change that by developing a suite of prize-linked financial products that incentivise consumers to engage with their finances on a daily basis. It is only by making financial products fun and accessible that we have a fighting chance closing the wealth gap and creating a financially inclusive society.”
