We’re excited to announce that the 3 million users of the Crypto.com platform now gain access to the $ERD token.

In effect, Elrond supporters from 100+ more markets can now become part of the ecosystem, and gain significant utility via the MCO VISA card to spend ERD everywhere.

"Convenience is the key that will lead to unprecedented growth for the Elrond ecosystem. 3 million users can now acquire, exchange, and transfer ERD tokens in 100+ markets via Crypto.com, making this one of the simplest ways for US and other communities around to world to join the Elrond ecosystem." said Beniamin Mincu, Elrond CEO.

Crypto.com is one of the most popular platforms for buying and selling cryptocurrencies using fiat. It has more than 3 million users thanks to its intuitive interface, easy access to purchasing options with fiat and its VISA debit card, which can be topped up using crypto and has up to 5% cash-back.

The move is important because more first-time users can onboard Elrond’s Proof of Stake economy, have access to Earn passive income options and the MCO VISA debit card.
