Abra, a full-service crypto platform, has partnered with American Express to offer a cryptocurrency reward credit card.

October 6, 2022

Mohammed Badi, the president of Global Network Services at American Express, and Bill Barhydt, CEO at Abra, sit with CoinDesks’ lead anchor Christine Lee to announce the Abra crypto card rollout and to discuss why it is important to the crypto space.

Barhydt defines it as “the first U.S. market-based product that allows you to earn unlimited crypto rewards on any purchase you make.” In addition to unlimited crypto rewards, the Abra card offers all the perks of an American Express card.

This panel occurred on Friday, June 10, 2022, the second day of CoinDesk’s Consensus 2022 festival in Austin, Texas.
