Since the market took a turn for the unstable, the opportunity for NFT holders to flex has also diminished. Now however, payments giant, Mastercard, has stepped in to fill the bravado-shaped void with a series of NFT emblazoned debit cards.
Partnering with European CEX, ‘Hi’, Mastercard will now offer a series of NFT-themed payment cards. Therefore, allowing holders of certain top-tier NFTs the chance to display their favourite collectibles in all their nonfungible glory. However, as if questioning the financial nous of NFT collectors, will not offer credit of any kind.
NEWS! Today @hi_com_official launches the world’s first debit card featuring NFT Customization, allowing cardholders to personalize the face of their card with an NFT Avatar. Read more here 👇https://t.co/awNVowcsuGpic.twitter.com/A5xFsHlX0w

Through the new initiative, owners of BAYC, Moonbirds, CryptoPunks, Goblintown and Azuki NFTs will all qualify. Owners of these collections will be able to personalize their debit cards subject to Mastercard’s design standards and NFT verification.
Once in possession, owners can then wield their fancy card anywhere that accepts Mastercard payments. Essentially, allowing them to initiate a purchase through fiat, stablecoins and crypto held within the ‘Hi’ account. Sadly, the offer only extends to members residing in one of 25 European Economic Areas, plus their unruly cousin, the United Kingdom. Therefore, leaving those located in the rest of the world seething with lustful envy.
