The month of December normally consists of a scramble to find the perfect gifts for coworkers, hosts, friends, and family. You either brave the long lines in stores or navigate supply chain delays online, and frequently end up settling on another generic candle.
This holiday season, we’re introducing a new crypto gifting experience that allows you to send family and friends crypto assets like Bitcoin and Ethereum along with a personalized digital card. The season of (crypto) giving is here.
The gift that keeps gifting
Crypto gifts educate, excite, and have the potential to increase in value (there’s also risk that they decrease in value). Plus, all crypto gifts come in a personalized digital card featuring up-and-coming, crypto-forward artwork.
Give a crypto gift right from the app or coinbase.com/gifting. Simply tap Send a gift from the menu on the left hand side — all you’ll need is the lucky recipient’s email address. You can gift 100+ crypto assets to recipients who already have a Coinbase account and can gift 5 assets (including Bitcoin and Ethereum) to recipients who are new to Coinbase. There is no fee to send a crypto gift.
Perfectly packaged with a digital card
Your gift is delivered in a digital card featuring a piece of unique artwork by an up-and-coming artist. Pick a piece, write a personalized note, and give the lucky recipient a taste of crypto culture.
