The card was originally announced only a few weeks ago, on February 24th. Back then, DigiFinex and Blucon held a press conference during which they revealed it. At the time, Da Hongfei, the co-founder of NEO, was one of the participants of the conference held on Zoom.

Apart from NEO, the card will also add support for a handful of other coins, including BTC, ETH, DASH, DFT, and BEP.

DigiFinex is a custodial exchange that focuses a lot on NEO: It offers spot trading for NEO and GAS, and it even offers margin trading for NEO. It reportedly has around 4 million users, which it services from its offices in China, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, and Australia.
