Monaco VISA Raises $3 Million in 3 Days, Announces Instant Cashback Program

May 24th, 2017 Zug, Switzerland. Monaco Technology GMBH, the company behind the revolutionary Monaco VISA® Card and App, announced the world’s first Cryptocurrency Cashback program today. Holders of Monaco VISA® cards will be entitled to up to 10% instant cashback rewards at participating merchants.

Kris Marszalek, Founder of Monaco Technology, commented: “The Monaco VISA® Card & App gives users the ability to spend, send and exchange money at perfect interbank exchange rates, saving them EUR30-40 on every EUR500 equivalent spent. We’re doubling down on this strategy to increase the level of savings they can achieve even further by announcing the world’s first Cryptocurrency Cashback rewards program.

After a transaction at a participating merchant, Monaco VISA® Card holders will be instantly credited up to 10% of the transaction value to their Monaco App wallets. The credit is in MCO, the native currency of Monaco Technology, which will be tradable on various exchanges starting 19 JUN 2017. Users will be able to easily convert MCOs to Bitcoin, Ether, as well as USD, EUR and other fiat currencies.

Combining perfect interbank exchange rates and instant cashback could potentially bring the savings on a single transaction to 15-18% for our customers. It’s simply unheard of.”, continued Mr. Marszalek. “The credit for the idea belongs entirely to the Monaco user community. We’re listening to what our users want in the product and executing at a rapid pace. If there’s a merchant you would like to see participating in the program, please join our Slack channel at, where users are currently contributing and voting on a list of merchants to bring to the Monaco platform.
