Monaco VISA® Card
In order to receive the Monaco VISA® Card, our customers need to download Monaco Android / iOS
App and go through a simple 3 min onboarding process, including remote KYC. We will issue and
send the Monaco VISA® cards to customers free of charge. The physical card can be used both for
online and offline purchases at more than 30m merchants who accept VISA® globally.
Every time you spend with the Monaco VISA® Card, you will be given perfect interbank exchange
rates without markups or fees. In practice that means savings of EUR30-40 on every EUR500 spent,
compared to high street banks.
You can fund your account with Ether and Bitcoin, instantly and for free. You can also use fiat
currencies, topping up your account by bank transfer or with a debit/credit card. Finally, you can also
apply for a credit limit from our App and receive a decision within 48 hours. A top-up credit limit
effectively turns the Monaco VISA® Debit Card into a credit card, as you will only pay interest on
amounts of credit that you use, but don’t repay in a timely fashion.
Spending your ETH/BTC with Monaco VISA® Card is seamless. You keep ETH/BTC balances in
your wallet, which you can view at any time in the Monaco App. Every time you swipe your Monaco
VISA® Card, we will only exchange the incremental amount of ETH/BTC that is required to settle the
fiat currency transaction with VISA®. The rest of your ETH/BTC balances remain in your wallet.
There are no monthly or annual fees for usage of the Monaco VISA® Card. Access to perfect interbank
exchange is free. Monaco will not charge fees for global ATM withdrawals within Fair Usage
Limits. There is a 1% fee for all transactions (swipe and exchange) of ETH/BTC. These earnings will
accrue in the MCO Smart Contract, the rights to which will be held by community members who
hold MCO tokens.
Fund your card with ETH/BTC
You can top-up your card with BTC/ETH and soon other ERC20 tokens. When you swipe the card, we convert an increment of your BTC/ETH/ERC20 tokens on the fly, just enough to settle the VISA® transaction. The rest sits securely in your wallet, potentially appreciating in value.
ETH-funded Purchase with Monaco
Jenny is a using Monaco Card for her travel expenses. She tops-up her Monaco account with 1 ETH.
She is in France on holidays and spends EUR 16 on lunch. She swipes the Monaco Card. Monaco
Card’s server-side processing systems apply perfect interbank exchange rates to calculate that EUR
16 equals USD 17.7410. Based on the current exchange rate between USD and ETH, provided by the
highest daily volume exchange, USD 17.7410 is equal to ETH 0.19068368.
Monaco will pass on the best-available exchange rate between USD & ETH to the users without any
Monaco will cover the cost of USD & ETH exchange rate (the maker/taker fees traditionally charged
by cryptocurrency exchanges).
No fees are applied for exchange between USD & EUR. Users will receive the perfect interbank
exchange rate without any mark-up.
This is absolutely the most cost-efficient way to
spend ETH in the world, avoiding all the bank fees!
The only fee that is applied is a 1% software license fee that accrues to the MCO Asset Contract
described in section 1.5. In this case, ETH 0.001906837 will be automatically credited to MCO Asset
Contract, increasing the value backing MCO tokens.
Since fees are paid in the token transacted in, the most popular tokens used for transacting will
accumulate to the distribution contract, helping back the value of MCO.

Monaco Dev Update — Cryptocurrency in Every Wallet, Part 2
This week marks a significant step in Monaco’s journey of making cryptocurrency more accessible to the public en mass. A little over 3 weeks ago we unveiled a portfolio of five cards and we are now approaching close to 20,000 reservations. Thank you to all our supporters for making this possible!
These are the hard stats at time of writing:Monaco Card reservations
Again, a huge thank you to all our supporters for making this possible. If you haven’t reserved yours yet, we encourage you to do so soon as shipping will be done on a first-come first-serve basis. We still have a limited number of our original 999 Obsidian Black cards available — get it via the Monaco App!
Monaco continues to push forward with a strategy of speedy delivery and user adoption. In our last update we made good on 2 out of 4 milestones for this year. In this one we will update on the remaining, plus a few extra announcements.
Card scheme approval
Our card approval program with VISA is going smoothly, however given the changing regulatory landscape things are taking a little longer than we had anticipated. Unfortunately this has forced us to push our timeline back by an extra month while our legal team works hard to finalize these deals. We remain 100% confident so please be patient while we complete this.
A note on our relationship with VISA:
As many have figured out already, Monaco is pursuing a more direct route to VISA approval than our competitors — through an associate membership rather than via a 3rd-party card supplier.
We are doing this because we believe this is what will give Monaco the advantage in an already competitive crypto-payments market.
- We will have full ownership rights over the issued VISA cards.
- We will have rights to use the VISA logo in our own branding and on the card itself.
- We will have a closer relationship with VISA allowing us to more effectively handle customer issues ourselves rather than delegate to others.
This is the main reason that our card approval has been delayed, but we hope you understand the why the wait is worth it!
Card Distribution (beta)
The card roll-out (now slated for late October) will being with an initial invitation-only distribution to a beta test group, consisting of our first 800 card reservations. This will allow us to respond to issues with the card before the 0 day release later this year.
We have made significant strides in acquiring new team members, and even finalised the lease for a new office space in Hong Kong (we move on October 25 and will be sharing photos then!). We are going to be doing a proper announcement of our new employees over the next couple of weeks (their start dates are not till at least mid-November) but we can confirm now that we have hired two new engineers.
Please note; it is worth mentioning that we will be moving off of Slack next week due to the constant spam from scammers using Slackbot and direct messaging. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and will be moving over to a new platform more suited to our use-case by Monday.
More updates on Monaco App to follow next week! Stay tuned.
