Binance Gift Card can be a powerful tool for those who are searching for new ways of using crypto for a variety of tasks, ranging from simple digital asset transfers to crypto gifts, all the way to facilitating new business models. 

While anyone can receive a Binance Gift Card, you will need to open an account on Binance in order to create one.

What is Binance Gift Card?

Binance Gift Card is a digital product that enables anyone to send crypto with no cross-border or any other extra fees. Users can send any of the hundreds of supported cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and a number of stablecoins. In addition, users can create a gift card by using supported fiat currencies as well.

A major benefit of Binance Gift Card is the fact that they are not limited to Binance users – they can be sent to anyone via email or text, and if they end up creating an account on Binance, the original gifter earns referral commission.

In addition to intra-person transfers and gifting, Binance complements its Gift Card offering with a special Binance Code Partner program tailored for business partners, who can resell Binance Gift Cards, enable users to buy NFTs and other digital assets with Binance Code, and sell Gift Cards to facilitate P2P trading.

What are some Binance Gift Card use cases?

As briefly mentioned above, Binance Gift Card can serve various purposes, including transferring crypto, gifting, and supporting different types of business models. We’ll explore how Gift Cards can be used in more detail in the following sections. Keep in mind that these are just some of the Gift Card uses as the possibilities are truly endless.

Send crypto to anywhere in the world with zero fees

One of the most significant benefits of Binance Gift Cards is their ability to serve as a great medium for cryptocurrency transfers. Users can decide how much of a supported digital currency to send, and the recipient can redeem the Gift Card without paying any fees. For this reason, Binance Gift Cards are a great option for remittance payments, especially considering the high fees traditional financial services charge for overseas money transfers.

To further streamline the process of transferring crypto between friends and family members, Binance recently launched a Transfer Crypto hub, allowing anyone with a Binance account to send crypto anywhere in the world with zero fees. 

Start your friends or family on a crypto journey

Binance Gift Cards can be used for gifting. Truly a shocker, we know. Jokes aside, sending a Gift Card to someone who might be interested in crypto but could feel overwhelmed using blockchain services themselves, can serve as a great starting point to crypto. 

In addition, each Gift Card can be customized with different templates from the Gift Card Marketplace and sent with a special message. Moreover, once the recipient redeems the Gift Card by opening a new account on Binance, you can look forward to earning referral commission.

Reward your employees and automate payroll

Binance Gift Cards are a great way to reward employees for their hard work, thanks to a special feature called Bulk Create. While the feature can be used amongst friends and family, where the feature truly shines is in large workplaces, where creating a Gift Card for each team member individually could be very time-consuming. 

Beyond occasional bonuses, the process of creating Binance Gift Cards can be automated, which can come in handy for businesses who might want to fulfill their payroll obligations using crypto. A major benefit of using Gift Cards for such purposes is transparency and effortless transaction history tracking provided by the service.
