Oh really.
I don't need 500USD.
Just wanna test say 50bucks.

Anyone tried TW/IR?
There should be some kinda fees involved using the above two platform


500usd is for swift transfers. You can try instarem/transferwise, no minimum amount. Some are trying revolut to transfer in as well, and have successfully transferred with no fees

InstaReM has some slight fees - you can view it on their website. Tried it with no issues, and deposit takes around 1-2 days.

First deposit takes longer though (~3 days).

why would anyone use such a card which requires staking is really out of my mind.

The drop in MCO token price is not enough to cover your Netflix sub, whatever cashbacks and whatever MCO gives you as rebates... lol. Don't be Penny Wise but Pound Foolish.

Anyone who took the Black card staking back in Jun will see a substantial loss of more than 50% in token price which I believed no amount of rebates, cashbacks or free subscriptions can cover. I am talking abt more than $150k loss here

Indeed. I certainly don't recommend getting Black Card unless the price is USD$0.50.

People who do this are people who can stomach volatility.

What pop-up are you referring to? I do not see it at the app home page, or I might have missed it if it is a one-time only notification.

Yup, really depends when you entered and how long you can stomach the volatility. Staking has to be held for a minimum of 6 months, so its a paper loss till then. After 6 months, you can unstake and sell the tokens and realise the loss, or hold on if you've faith in the project. Crypto markets are volatile so what the price will be in the next few months is anyone's guess

You cannot top up EzLink at the machine. Only can do it with the Ezlink App.

Yup, needs 3DS for the ezlink app to work. You can tap it directly for transport but can't top up ezlink for now. Still waiting for 3DS!

just got the card, staked.
and applied for spotify.

But still not sure what to use the card for..
any ideas?

just realise need a min 500usd to fund the card?
Good for spending at places (Gov, hospitals,ezlink...)where cashback is excluded by other cards.

Good for spend in foreign currency up to your limit without extra charges. If your cashback is 2%, add the forex charges + VISA/MC charges by other cards 2.5-3%, equivalent to 4.5-5% cashback if you use other cards.
Only problem now is you need to have min 4.5 MCO (given as cashback) to sell, but they said they will remove the minimum soon.

MCO can take a backseat while Grab MasterCard is the king now.
