Have you ever heard of Crypto.com? I’ve been aware of the exchange for awhile now, but just recently choose to give them a try. While watching one of my favorite youtubers Lark Davis (TheCryptoLark), I noticed a brief promo for Crypto.com that spurred my interest.
Lark Davis discussed a feature that allowed account holders to use debit/credit cards against their cryptocurrency balance. I was also intrigued by the crypto earn feature which is very similar to staking. I figured why not give them a try, I’ve pretty much tried every reputable exchange with a mixed bag of results. My mind was made up when he said that I would receive $50 in MCO tokens if I staked 50 MCO for a certain amount time along with signing up for a card. This didn’t happen as promised, but we will get into that later.
I first attempted to sign up for Crypto.com via there exchange website and soon discovered that it was not offered to the United States. I then downloaded the app and started the sign up process and successfully registered an account. Once it was time to fund the account, I ran into problems that would have caused most people to given up. Crypto.com would allow me to enter my debit card information, but every time I attempted to fund the account, the transaction would be declined. This was quite frustrating to say the least.
I attempted to use a several different cards and each attempt was declined. I then started to worry that one of my cards may have the account frozen due to too many unsuccessful attempts. Guess what, that’s exactly what happened when I attempted to buy something a couple days later.
At that point my frustration got the better of me and I gave up. I was done with Crypto.com and the regulatory problems that I was experiencing. Its a well known fact that traditional financial institutions are not a fan of cryptocurrency and some make it very difficult to transfer funds to and from crypto exchanges.
While sitting around the house the following day it struck me like a bolt of lightening. Why don’t you transfer some Bitcoin or Ethereum to them instead of fiat currency. The whole concept behind cryptocurrency is to get away from banks and their control over our money. I felt so stupid when I quickly found the cryptocurrency deposit feature and funded my account with Bitcoin.
Once my new account was funded, I started to explore the app and was impressed with its ease of use. There were plenty of cryptocurrencies to choose from and I didn’t feel as limited as Coinbase and Coinbase Pro have left me on many occasions in the past.
Crypto.com even has Cardano( ADA) listed which is my all time favorite crypto project next to Bitcoin. This told me that this exchange has foresight and will reap rewards when the Shelly Testnet goes live. I decided to purchase a few choice cryptocurrencies and proceeded to stake 50 MCO tokens with crypto earn.
Once the staking was completed, I attempted to sign up for a debit/credit card. It appeared to be ordered, but my account always stated that the status was pending and I have not received my 50 MCO to this date. On the positive note, I was impressed with the high rate of returns that Crypto.com offers.
I staked CRO tokens for 14% annual return for 30 days. They offer as high as 18%, but I didn’t want to put all my eggs in one basket on a test run. I am sure you understand the logic. Ethereum and Bitcoin don’t offer as much, but its better to be earning something than nothing.
So the big question is would I recommend Crypto.com and the answer is yes. I am a bit disappointed when it came to the the $50 bonus, but I am hoping that the process just takes longer than I expected. With that said, please remember that I am not a financial adviser and I am just another guy on the internet with a passion for cryptocurrency. Please do your own research before you make any financial decisions.
