Aximetria, a Swiss cryptocurrency company, introduced AxiCheck, which checks the probability of a bank card being blocked when making transactions with digital assets.
According to company representatives, the service is based on the statistics of making purchases using cryptocurrency and withdrawing funds to various cards in 427 banks from 80 countries.
AxiCheck does not require registration or entering personal data:
“To check the card, the user just needs to indicate its first six digits. This is the issuer’s unique BIN, which contains information about the bank, country of issue, payment system, and card level,” Aximetria said.
Based on the results of the check, a bank card will be assigned to one of four types:
- “100% crypto card” – operations using similar cards are successful;
- “The card is ready to become crypto” – suitable for cryptocurrency operations with a high probability;
- “The card is only 50% ready for crypto” – there may be problems with the withdrawal of funds;
- “Your card is out of date” – it is not recommended to perform cryptocurrency operations.
In addition to the web version, AxiCheck mobile apps for iOS and Android are available.
In March 2019, the accounts of one of Tinkoff Bank’s customers turned out to be blocked after he conducted a deal to sell bitcoins on the LocalBitcoins service.
