Montreal’s Shakepay has opened up their Shakepay Visa Prepaid Card to the public after a successful invite-only launch to its devoted community of Shakers late last year.
Shakepay is a leading Canadian bitcoin technology company enabling customers to easily buy and earn bitcoin through financial applications. Earlier this year Shakepay secured a $44 million Series A investment round led by US-based QED Investors.
The new Bitcoin Rewards Card will allow Shakepay cardholders to earn up to 2% in bitcoin cashback on their first $5,000 spent, settled directly to the bitcoin balance of their Shakepay account. Cardholders will then earn 1% bitcoin cashback on every purchase beyond their first $5,000.
“After a tremendous year for Bitcoin and Shakepay, we’re excited to make the Shakepay Card more widely available,” said Jean Amiouny, Co-founder and CEO of Shakepay.
“The exclusive invite-only launch to our community was a huge success, and we couldn’t be more excited to open access to the general public. We know our customers value bitcoin rewards, and we’re looking forward to offering Shakers more ways to earn bitcoin.”
