The Hash Card
To sign up for the Hash Card subscribers need to visit hashcard.io and complete a very simple, 3-minute onboarding process, including remote KYC. Once this is completed the Hash Card will be issued and distributed free to customers. A physical card may be used at more than 30 million merchants globally. It can be used both online and in bricks and mortar premises for offline purchases.
Precise interbank rates are guaranteed when using the Hash Card. No fees or additional markups mean that, in real terms, the cardholder receives a saving of up to 7% when compared to high street banks. Hash Card accounts can be instantly funded, at no charge, with Ether and Bitcoin. From Q4, 2018 Fiat funding will also be available to load the Hash Card. Using the Hash Card to fund purchases is simple. Via the HashApp you can view the ETH/BTC/ETC/USD balances in your wallet. The only exchange is the exact amount of cryptocurrency required for the purchase currency exchange.
Example – ETH-funded Purchase with Hash Card
Mary, a day trader closed her XRP/ ETH place to enjoy a 12 ETH profit. Mary immediately transferred 5ETH to her Hash Card and booked into her favourite luxury spa in Paris. She did not need to wait for the exchange to send a traditional wire/SEPA transfer. The funds were instantly available for her to use on her Hash Card.
The Hash Standard Card will be the initial release. This card is available to anyone except Chinese nationals although the card itself will be accepted in China. Plans are currently in hand for multiple level cards including Gold, Platinum and Black in Q3 2018. Each of these new cards will have a lower transaction fee than the standard card.

Our projections for on our share of the crypto card industry and the expected userbase and volumes in the next 5 years. Our projected figures are backed up with market research conducted by Statista.com and the University of Cambridge. Estimates are based on an average spend of USD3,750 per year / card. In a 2016 report from the Boston Federal Reserve, 0.87% of US consumers are estimated to have owned cryptocurrency in 2015, which equates to approximately 2.8 million people in the US alone.
Coinbase and ARK Research, using their own user data, estimate that in 2016 approximately 10 million people around the world owned bitcoin. By tapping into data from study participants and making the assumption that each individual, on average, holds two wallets, we believe there are currently between 2.9 million and 5.8 million unique users that actively use a cryptocurrency wallet. All these individuals are potential subscribers for Hash Card. You can check ICO stats for more information about their current status.
