Launched in November 2018, the Crypto.com Visa Cards have grown to be the world’s most popular Visa Card program offering crypto rewards, available in 40 countries. To ensure long-term sustainability, we are introducing a number of changes to the CRO Card rewards programme, effective 1 June 2022 00:00 UTC (“Effective Date”).
A) Reduction of CRO Card Rewards
Cardholders with an active 6-month stake by 31 May 23:59 UTC will continue to earn CRO Card rewards on spending at the current rate until their 180-day stake expires. Thereafter, the revised rates will apply.
|Card Tier||Revised CRO Card Rewards||Revised CRO Card Rewards|
|No Stake||Active Stake|
|Royal Indigo / Jade Green||0%||2%|
|Icy White / Frosted Rose Gold||1%||3%|
B) Introduction of monthly CRO Card rewards cap
Depending on your current Card tier, there is a maximum monthly cap on how much CRO Card rewards you can earn when you spend on your Crypto.com Visa Card, effective 1 June 2022 00:00 UTC. For example, if you own a Ruby Steel Card, your monthly CRO Card rewards will be capped at US$25.
There is no monthly CRO Card rewards cap for Icy White, Frosted Rose Gold, and Obsidian cardholders.
|Card||Monthly CRO Card Rewards Cap |
(in USD or the equivalent amount in other local fiat currencies)
|Royal Indigo / Jade Green||$50|
C) Revision of Card CRO staking rewards
Jade Green, Royal Indigo, Frosted Rose Gold, Icy White, and Obsidian cardholders with an active 6-month stake by 31 May 23:59 UTC will continue to earn Card CRO staking rewards at the current rate until their 180-day stake expires. Thereafter, the revised rates will apply:
- 8% p.a. for Private Members with an Obsidian, Icy White, or Frosted Rose Gold Card
- 4% p.a. for Jade Green or Royal Indigo cardholders
D) Free Card Reissuance
Until further notice, the $50 card reissuance fee will be waived for cardholders who upgrade to the next card tier by staking the requisite amount.
There is no change to other Card benefits. You will continue to receive 100% reimbursements for your favourite monthly subscription services, including Spotify, Netflix, and Amazon Prime. This will be excluded from the calculation of your monthly CRO cap. Jade Green, Royal Indigo, and other higher-tier cardholders can continue to enjoy unlimited complimentary LoungeKey™ airport lounge access.
Here’s an illustration* on how much savings a Jade Green cardholder with an active CRO stake can enjoy each year:
|Card Benefits||Savings||Annual Savings Earned |
|100% reimbursement for Spotify subscription||$13.99 per month||$167.88|
|100% reimbursement for Netflix subscription||$13.99 per month||$167.88|
|Complimentary Lounge Key Access||$32 per visit|

Introducing these changes to the card program is a difficult decision. We are committed to continue exploring and forging new partnerships to unlock greater value and benefits for our cardholders such as our partnership with Dosh, a cash-back rewards platform in the U.S.
