Social Trading Platform eToro To Launch A Debit Card in Q2 2020
December 10, 2019

UK based multi-asset social trading platform eToro is planning to launch a debit card in the second quarter of 2020.

On Dec. 9, Business Insider reported that the digital asset trading platform’s 12 million users will be able to spend their earnings via a debit card. The service will reportedly launch in the UK first.

Millenials Prefers Investing in Crypto In Times Of Recession

A survey cited by eToro on generational investment conducted from July 18 to July 31 among 1,000 online investors in the United States suggested that 40% of millennials would prefer to invest in crypto assets in the event of a recession.

Guy Hirsch, managing director of eToro U.S. added:

“We believe that if a recession were to occur, we’d see shrinking stock portfolios and growth in other asset classes like crypto, as well as new fractional ownership models. Historically, these investment opportunities have been limited to high net worth and institutional investors, but innovation is unlocking these opportunities for everyday investors and clearly, these results indicate that the demand is there.”

EToro’s global head of PR & communications, Amy Butler, confirmed that the company is indeed working on a debit card launch, but declined to provide more details at this point in time.
