The Gemini credit card *, a long-awaited crypto credit card that open public applications a few weeks ago, stopped accepting applications.

IN Gemini site states that the company made the decision to “further enhance the customer experience” while connected status page suggests there were technical issues on Thursday. A Gemini spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Although the reason for the pause of the application is not transparent, it is worth noting that there is an inherent risk in this new genre of crypto credit cards, which can lead to technical delays and hiccups along the way. Banks, governments and credit card institutions are trying to orient themselves in developing rules and regulations for this new type of card in real time, so volatility continues to haunt some financial products integrated with cryptocurrencies.
