Gemini, the New York-based cryptocurrency exchange, has planned to allow cryptocurrency holders to spend crypto and receive Bitcoin (BTC) cashback rewards on Mastercard credit cards.

It has been reported that the credit card will be released in conjunction with Mastercard and will be issued by online banking institution WebBank.

However, it is expected to be released this coming summer and has reportedly received over 140,000 sign-ups from waiting for customers already.

The report said that Gemini joins major cryptocurrency exchanges like Binance and Coinbase in launching a crypto credit card as holders seek a way to utilize their coins in real-world situations. The Gemini card will reportedly offer users 3% cashback on dining purchases, 2% on groceries, and 1% on other purchases. The rewards will reportedly be paid back to the user in real-time, at the very moment the transaction takes place.

Linda Kirkpatrick, the president of Mastercard’s North American operations, said that the financial services firm was happy to provide more choices for customers by enabling cryptocurrency payments and rewards.

She added:

“Our work with Gemini builds upon this position, connecting consumer needs with next-generation assets and delivering a ground-breaking experience that redefines the future of card rewards and benefits.”

Likewise, Tyler Winklevoss, the co-founder of Gemini, said that crypto credit cards were a good way to give users a point of entry to the cryptocurrency space without them having to alter their existing spending habits.

Thus, he added:

“As more consumers look to enter the crypto ecosystem, the Gemini Credit Card gives them an easy point of entry and an effortless way to earn crypto as a reward without changing their daily spending habits. Mastercard continues to evolve and meet both industry and consumer demands and commit to the crypto space. We’re excited to partner with them on our first real-time crypto rewards card, further helping to bring crypto mainstream.”
