nio Card securely stores your private keys so you can make payments. It also stores your Bitcoin address to receive payments.



You can securely copy your Bitcoin payment addresses onto nio Card from your smartphone using Bluetooth. Once stored your card will act just like a normal contactless payment – but way more secure.

Taking payments is also easy with our Bitcoin Kiosk app.
