Our CEO, Steve Schnall, On Why Bitcoin Rewards Checking
Why did we create Bitcoin Rewards Checking?
Quontic exists to break from the traditional banking mold and offer its customers something that is unique. With most checking accounts, banks earn “interchange fees” every time a customer uses its debit card and they typically offer nothing to the customer in return. Instead, Quontic is essentially passing these earnings on to its customers in the form of Bitcoin.
What Makes Bitcoin Rewards Checking so groundbreaking?
Our Bitcoin Rewards Checking account has no monthly service fees and is the first debit card in the US which rewards consumers with Bitcoin. As compared to other rewards – airline miles or credit card points – Bitcoin rewards has the opportunity to appreciate. Also, Bitcoin Rewards Checking gives those customers new to cryptocurrency the opportunity to earn free Bitcoin simply by banking with us and using their debit card.
