About Bold
Bold’s mission is to accelerate adoption of bitcoin as global money. Bold is building the ultimate financial product for bitcoiners – a bitcoin-backed credit card that’s usable everywhere cards are accepted. The Bold card is collateralized by bitcoin, so its limits are higher, rates are lower, and terms are better. Bold enables users to tap into the spending power of their bitcoin without directly spending it, to maximize bitcoin holdings and minimize taxes. Bold is backed by top firms, including Hustle Fund, Rare Breed Ventures, Assembly Capital, El Zonte Capital, Bitcoiner Ventures, and Lightning Ventures.
