A few years ago I got a Spectrocoin BTC / USD card which used to work ok for a while, until VISA cracked down on crypto-enhanced card providers and the whole program was stopped. Since then, I didn't use the platform much, although they also launched an exchange and an internal token called Bankera (Bankera and Spectrocoin are basically the same thing).
But the other day I saw they introduced a cool way to use your crypto on mainstream shopping outlets, specifically Amazon. The process is simple and it was already applied by others: you buy Amazon gift cards at the Spectrocoin website, then you use those Amazon gift cards on Amazon (currently working on Amazon Spain, Italy, Germany and France). Incidentally, you can buy a few other vouchers, based on their availability in the country you're based, like mobile phones top-up vouchers, for instance.
If you have a Spectrocoin account, you can go to Withdraw, and choose Withdraw to Top-up and Vouchers (at the bottom of the page). Then you select your country and see which vouchers are available for you. In all countries you should see the Amazon prepaid cards. This works if you hold BTC, Ethereum, XRP and a few other mainstream cryptos on the Spectrocoin wallet.
If you don't have a Spectrocoin account you can create one here, there are no fees, but you would have to verify your account. The link above is an affiliate link, which means that if you sign up with it, I will get 10% off of your transaction fees.
That's it, hope it's useful.
There is an ongoing funding proposal for two of my Hive-related projects, which will allow me to support some of the costs involved. If you want to support this proposal, all you have to do is to vote it using any of the two links below:
