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.

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.

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.
