Curve's linked credit card is now available to consumers, allowing users to link all of their card accounts to a single app and connected Curve MasterCard, which they can then use to control which real card the Curve card makes payment from.
The app features several other services above the offering of a regular bank card. Besides being able to switch cards at will, you can get notifications for transactions, spend abroad without incurring fees and benefit from end-to-end encryption on every purchase. If a fraudulent payment is detected, Curve automatically locks down the card that was used to make it. Curve's been trialling its platform with beta users for several months. Founder and CEO Shachar Bialick told TechCrunch that around 100,000 people have used the app so far. The company has another 50,000 people signed up to its waiting list. These members will begin to be approved this week now the app has entered general availability.
