Working remotely and traveling. How crypto.com Can be useful for your international and traveling needs.
Crypto.com is a cryptocurrency platform that offers a range of services including a wallet to store, buy, sell and pay with cryptocurrencies, a Visa debit card to spend cryptocurrencies anywhere, and a trading platform to buy and sell a variety of cryptocurrencies with fiat or other cryptocurrencies. It aims to make cryptocurrencies more accessible and usable for everyone.
As a Crypto.com user, I find this card to be rewarding in many ways. Especially if you travel internationally for remote work, a digital nomad, or simply looking for a Crypto visa card for your crypto ventures. Below is a list of benefits.
Crypto.com is a good option for remote workers because it offers several benefits that can be useful for individuals who work remotely:

Trading platform: Crypto.com's trading platform allows remote workers to buy and sell cryptocurrencies with fiat or other cryptocurrencies, providing a convenient option for managing their investments.
Overall, Crypto.com provides remote workers with a convenient and secure platform to manage their cryptocurrencies and make payments, helping to streamline the Pros and Cons

Are you a remote worker or Plan to ?
As someone who spends a-lot of time working in the metaverse, and in web 3, you now have the opportunity to work in different parts of the world. If you have a gaming computer and access to wifi, you now have the options to try this, and I know this because it is something i am currently doing. This year, I have traveled to Thailand, Hawaii, and Italy. As I am in Thailand, I can showcase my metaverse performances, and also host shows.
With crypto.com, it's been a very beneficial card to have. Since it is an international visa card. I was able to take out funds from the local Bangkok grocery Store ATM. I did have to pay a fee in BTH. Another Option you can use, is going to a Local Bitcoin ATM, (they have apps for locating these) and being able to withdraw bitcoin or whatever cryptocurrency the atm allows you to withdraw. With just these two options things are working in your favor if you want to stay in the crypto route. I am still learning how to navigate using the card, as i have moved away from traditional debit cards/Credit cards. They are still useful, but i have limited my use in these. I eventually hope to see the world be crypto friendly where you wont need to withdraw, and can just pay with crypto.
Airport Lounge Access through LoungeKey:
This by far has been one of my favorite features, and a money saver. I was someone who was an average traveler, economy style. Although my goal is to upgrade to first class, having this loungeKey access certainly feels like i am on my way there. Since, Upgrading to the Indigo card, I have totally taken advantage of the benefits wherever they are available. I downloaded to Loungekey app, and usually search which city i am traveling to. They give you the information of which terminal to head to, and then in the fine print what is included in that. For instance, I had a layover at Qatar Airport. I layover happen to be 7 hours. I could have been frustrated, but with this access, I was able to "Use Sleep and Shower" ... where they allowed me to sleep for up to 3 hrs in a Pod, that had my own TV, AIR Conditioning, pillows, Blankets, charge all my devices and then have the concierge wake me up when my time was up. I had a awesome nap and felt comfortable. I then went to the shower. where i can receive up to 1hr. to shower, they had blowdryer, organic shampoo/conditioner and soap. I was fresh and clean after a nap, then i head straight away to Al Maha Lounge Where i enjoyed open bar, and some vegetarian cuisines. I took some peligrino and waters and put them in backpack and a few snacks and was ready for my next flight. The experience alone, made me reach out to crypot.com and thank them for giving the average person who has never experience this kind a service a thank you. Really made me appreciate crypto and the doors it can open for others.
When i first started with crypto . com 3 years ago, i did start off with the free one. I wanted to try it out before i spent more money on it. over the years the platform has grown, I ended up grading the card two times. I upgraded to the Ruby, and then finally the indigo to tier 3. I hope to become a black Card holder some day. the Indigo card cost me about $4,000 worth of CRO tokens. I think within the years of traveling and using the perks of Spotify, Netflix, airport lounge, i already got at least half my money back. I think the money is totally worth it, if you are looking for comfort, connivance while traveling. Looking forward to someday, being able to use Private Jet partnership one day. Yes, it's on my bucket List.
