Buying Starbucks Matcha Latte with Steem Dollars (using TenX card), in 2 steps. 教你用SteemDollar刷卡买星巴克抹茶拿铁

Some of my fellow Steemians asked me how to buy a coffee with Steem dollars. Today I'd like to show you the easiest way, in only two steps. All you need to get is a TenX credit card and transfer your Steem dollars directly to TenX bitcoin address. TenX is a credit card from a Singaporean company. There are already some other credit cards out there, such as Bitwala's card, which you can top up with bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. But the best feature of TenX is:

It stores Bitcoin (at the moment, later also Ether and Dash) in your TenX wallet address. It converts the bitcoin to FIAT only when you make a purchase.

We all know crypto markets fluctuate like crazy, so it's really amazing to use the (close to) real-time exchange rates. You basically own a real-life crypto wallet in your pocket. Cool, isn't it?

标题党了,我这里的星巴克跟国内的星巴克也一样,不支持虚拟币消费的。今天我主要是推荐一个可以存放并消费比特币的借记信用卡。

最近很多朋友问我一个问题,我在Steemit上面赚到一些钱,但是该怎么取出来或者怎么花它呢?比如我想买一杯咖啡,要是可以直接用SteemDollar多好啊!相信在cn新手区已经有很多帖子介绍你怎么把取钱取出来,怎么换成比特币或者其他加密货币了。今天我想要分享我最近一直使用的一个很简单的方法,直接用加密货币买东西。

只需要两步
首先你需要申请一张TenX这个新加坡公司的借记信用卡,然后把你的SteemDollar转到比在TenX的比特币地址。其实市面上可以用比特币和其他加密货币充值的信用卡越来越多,比如我也有一张 Bitwala公司的卡。我推荐TenX的原因是:这个信用卡是存着比特币(目前只支持比特币,以后也会相继支持以太坊和其他)刷卡的时候才会自动以(基本)实时汇率转为货币用于支付。这也解释了为什么这个信用卡有自己的比特币地址

You can see I paid 4.8 Euro = 0.00219733BTC by using the (almost) real time BTC exchange rate to Euro (2184 ~ 2197), and without transaction fees from TenX.

今天我在星巴克买了一杯抹茶饮料,你可以TenX的app上面看到我实际支付了4.8欧元,也等于0.00219733比特币。用的的汇率2184跟实时汇率2197十分接近的。而且从TenX付款本身是没有手续费的。

On a warm summer day, who doesn't want a refreshing iced coffee or matcha? Let me show you how to buy it with your hard-earned Steem Dollars, step by step.

炎炎夏日,谁不想来一杯星巴克的冰咖啡或者冰抹茶?如果可以用我们辛苦赚来的SteemDollar买,岂不是更棒了!其实非常简单,只要两步,让我手把手教你们。

  • Step 1. Install TenX app, android version at the moment, iOS version coming next month! You can request the card from the app.

首先,你需要下载这个TenX的应用程式,目前还只支持安卓版本,但是下个月就会有爱疯版啦!就是下面这个界面,下载完毕,进去申请你的信用卡。

  • Step 2. Transfer your Steem Dollars to your TenX address in bitcoin, you can find your TenX address in the app, shown below. You can use Bittrex, Poloniex , BlockTrades or any other ways.

然后,就是把你的Steem Dollars转到你的TenX里面的比特币地址了。地址点开TenX应用程式点充值就可以看到。转换有各种方法,可以用Bittrex, Poloniex , BlockTrades或者其他方法,相信在cn区这个帖子都可以找到。

Success! As you see, it worked quite well, I got a confirmation message once I successfully paid with TenX.

成功了,我刷比特币信用卡买到了一杯星巴克的抹茶拿铁!付款成功后,也收到了验证邮件。

這個超級厲害!!

·

对 推荐!

Isn't it amazing to spend crypto everywhere VISA is accepted? :)

·

Yes, I think there're still a few countries they don't deliver but most countries yes.

Yeah sehr geil! Ich warte auch noch auf meine TenX Karte :P Freue mich schon dann damit zu bezahlen :D Danke für den hilfreichen Artikel <3

·

Bitte :) I don't speak German tho, only Dutch lol.

Great! One question,how much is the annual fee for this card?

·

I think if you spend (purchase, cashout, etc) more than 1000 dollars per year, then annual fee is exempted.

·
·

Thanks for the information!

@joythewanderer, thank you for this! I didn't know the tech was this far a long already. I want to look into getting one to use in the United States. I'm wondering if there are companies already getting on this tech here. You really opened my eyes on the possibilities of SBD and the power of steemit for me has increased. (5 out of 5 #yunk!)

·

Thanks for visiting! I hope you find one in the States. I think there're many companies there busy with cryptos. #yunk it on!

大赞。不知道英国有没有这样的。

·

现在我知道的做的比较好的就是这家新加坡公司,可以寄到英国的,需要付一些运费……以后应该会有很多其他公司。

I want buy too...but... I would only do it in a local cafe shop... not in Starbucks. It help local shops more.

·

lol, I actually also prefer local cafes, I got this coupon of Starbucks buy 1 get 1, that's the reason.

·
·

Npr :)) I was just say :) But it is good that this card works :) I must buy too this card :)

·
·
·

hahaha great!

·
·
·
·

:)) good

谢谢分享,我去试试看申请

·

不客气 :P

Really cool :-)

·

I think so too! enjoy using it lately! Thanks for dropping by.

Is this card accepted worldwide? Look great,btc finally get one more stetp to the public.

·

Almost worldwide, in Asia, Europe no problem.

Excellent article. I began to follow you. Please follow me @cranium.

indeed you outlines that perfectly and i upvoted you. One question i still have on TenX, is how are they finding the liquidity versus bitcoin or other crypto. Are they exchanging you btc versus fiat at an exchange, internally or which ever other way? Let me know if you do. Cheers!

·

Thanks! Here I found in their website: TenX uses an internal bitcoin price to determine exchange rates between fiat currencies and bitcoin.

·
·

Thanks. Still doesn't tell me much how they derive the price, if and what kind of spread they use etc. Could be you are not paying the best conversion rate ever of course (as is probably their model).

·
·
·

I don't really think they use the best rate tho, even though I once watched the interview where they mentioned they gonna choose the best rate.

·
·
·
·

But no foreign exchange conversion fee does up the utility of this card as well, when considering all of the fees typically involved in a transaction such as this...

我听了你的建议 还跟我男人说了这个 他研究了下还申请了信用卡 直说好用 哈哈哈

·

他果然金融帝

Interesting. I'd not heard of that one. I'll bear it in mind

·

Thanks for dropping by and commenting! It's always nice to have more choices how we can spend our cryptos.

Haha zag aan je email screenshot dat je Nederlands was en ook nog is chinees met verstand van cryptocurrency!
Don't mind me, heb alleen even snel een account aangemaakt om als medechinees te zeggen, keep on rocking =) met je blog en je travels

·

Goed middag! Ik ben Nederlands nog aan het leren maar ja ik begrijp wel! Welkom aan Steemit en bedankt voor je bezoek :) Ben je eigenlijk Chinees? Woon je dan ook in Belgie?

·
·

我是中国人的但是我中文太好哈哈。Nee ik woon in Nederland Amsterdam 但是我有很多亲戚住在安特卫普 =). 我看到了你学了很多语言, en als je nu nog nederlands aan het leren bent dan ben je nog beter in de andere talen?

·
·
·

Ik zie het! Chinees is moeilijk om te leren eens je niet in China woont en opgrooit bent. Nederlands is niet echt mijn beste taal, ik vind die een echt ingewikkelde taal, quo uitspraak, quo grammatica. :D Ik spreek Engels en Chinees beter dan Nederlands :p Ik heb hier in Belgie ook frans geleerd. Er zijn veel franstaligen hier. Ik hou van beide Antwerp en Amsterdam.

·
·
·
·

很棒! 你的荷兰语比我的中文好多了哈哈=D.
just out of curiousity how long have you been living in belgium and where =) if there are a lot of french people im guessing brussels? and im guessing from the fact that you have also studied french, the fact that your dutch is way better than my chinese and the fact that you still use a hotmail account haha :P I assume around 10 years?

·
·
·
·
·

谢谢!你一定也会很多中文,我觉得你谦虚。
I actually live in Leuven, quite close to BXL. I love French language so I spent a year studying it full-time in BXL. But my French is not great. I've been living here for almost 5 years.... I just realized hotmail is indeed so out-dated :)

国内还没支持虚拟币消费,高额的fee有些望而却步

·

我这里的星巴克也不支持虚拟币消费的。这个信用卡刷卡不用手续费,相当于一个实体的比特币钱包。除了把钱转进卡的比特币地址需要正常的比特币转账费用。

·
·

也就是根据当前汇率 扣除部分btc 用的还是法币

·
·
·

是的,好处是用实时汇率转换,哈哈哈,哪天比特币价钱高了可以多刷几杯咖啡,价钱低了就不喝了

·
·
·
·

cn可以申请那个卡么

·
·
·
·
·

那个公司国家列表里有中国的。可以发货到国内

·
·

如果steemdollar可以用的话,是不是ERC20都可以用呢?比如我转一些BTS到TENX里,也可以实时兑换成人民币付款?

great demonstration of how to do it .. so cool to see this in action

·

You are welcome! I'm happy you liked it :D

·

Thanks for your suggestion!

I can't wait for TenX cards to be available here in the USA. Great article!

·

I hope they go available in the States soon!

awesome... cant wait to see more...

·

Thanks, mate! I will write more about things I learned in steemit.

That's really cool! Thanks for doing a step by step, makes it super easy! I honestly didn't even know that was possible ^_^"

·

Thanks! I'm happy you liked it :D

that's why i investen on tenx!

·

Indeed, the card is really great!

太讚了!! 怎麼買tenx的卡?? 官網好像沒有?

·

不客气 需要先下载APP,直接在APP上面申请

·
·

IOS好像沒哈哈😂, 所以App申請就能用?
官網感覺還是ICO當時的網頁,claim special card後 便要認證什麼txid
看來要等ios版啦

·
·
·

ios应该最近就会出来。

Cool post but I can't come over idea to drink green drinks 😲

·

lol, I know a lot of people hate matcha, they told me it tastes like grass.

實在是太實用啦~~
不知道是否全球都可以使用,目前只知道德國可使用比特幣,不知美國現在可否,晚點來去試試看:)

Incredible. How did you get the card? did you ask Tenx for it?

훌륭한 게시물, 공유해 주셔서 대단히 감사합니다.

I am interested in tenx 💳 card

buying free ?

When you say using STEEM dollars and sending that to the tenX wallet bitcoin address, do you mean trading your STEEM for BTC on an exchange and then sending that BTC to the wallet? Or do you actually mean send STEEM directly to the TenX Bitcoin wallet ?
