Why Buy Bitcoin and Ether Crypto as a Gift Card?

We've all been there. Scratching our heads, looking for the best gift, but struggling to find something unique.

The gift of a cryptocurrency card is unlike any other. The most distinctive difference from a traditional gift card is that the value may grow over time. Additionally, there are no gift card fees for inactivity. Your cryptocurrency card can be used at stores that accept the digital currency loaded onto the card, can be held short- or long-term for its value and exchanged back to US dollars via a crypto exchange, or you can add the crypto onto a digital wallet at any time.


Which Cryptocurrency Would Make the Best Gift?

The most established, accepted, and widely traded cryptocurrencies this year were Bitcoin and Ether. Bitcoin is considered by many to be the original digital currency. From the beginning of 2020 until November 24, 2021 (the date this article was written) Bitcoin has seen an increase in value of 674% vs the US dollar. While Ethereum is up in value more than 3,000% vs the US dollar during the same timeframe.
