Naga Card recently went liveF and started shipping their prepaid crypto cards. Wirex has been around for the whole summer and they’ve consistently been ranked as #1 crypto debit card for EU and UK (read full Wirex review).

One of the main Naga vs Wirex difference is that Naga Card uses the Naga Coin for conversion of crypto to fiat. NGC is central to the whole Naga ecosystem. Wirex, on the other hand, supports direct crypto deposits – and allows spending Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple XRP and Bitcoin.

A lot of info is still lacking on the Naga website – namely about the fees for POS purchases and ATM withdrawals. Wirex’ limits have recently been increased to $15K at any time. When summed up, this limit is higher than that of Naga (120K EUR annually).

All in all, Wirex presents a more reliable option for spending crypto at the moment.
