Looking to get into cryptocurrency? Start here. When you opt-in to the Crypto Rewards program, you can automatically convert earned cashback into the token of your choosing. From Bitcoin to Ethereum and Cardano, you’ve got 10 tokens to choose from. Already earning crypto with another card? Even better - Add it to Curve and stack those rewards.
Are those features available for EEA customers? Or are they planed?
I’m very surprised - as whilst the interchange fees aren’t capped so Curve can charge vendors more, Curve themselves are in turn charged more by their customers’ cards.
Curve started off operations in the UK by not looking too closely at customer applications and gave out business Curve cards (which have high interchange fees, i.e. income to Curve) linked to personal credit cards (which have low interchange fees, i.e. outgoings to Curve) and this was one of their main income streams advertised during a funding round.
Since Curve were told to clamp down on business cards for personal users, they’ve lost this delta and income stream - every transaction on average loses a little bit of money. Unless they can get US customers adding cards with low interchange fees, they’re still going to lose cash on every transaction.
