After the IBAN, here is Hi’s customizable Mastercard

It is both a banking app and a crypto exchange. Behind this platform are two big names in DeFi: the former marketing director of Crypto.com and the former CEO of Bitcoin.com.
The simple fact of staking Hi’s native token (HI DOLLAR) entitles you to membership and the many features of the application.
