Which Deposits Are Impacted by Direct To Bitcoin?

When you toggle on Direct To Bitcoin then your conversion percentage will apply to all of your deposits going forward until you disable the feature.

What are the fees?

At the time of launch there are no additional fees for users for bitcoin purchased through the Direct to Bitcoin feature, including Spin and Spin+ users.

What are the minimum and maximum amounts?

The minimum amount of bitcoin that can be purchased through Direct to Bitcoin is $10; the maximum amount is 100% of your deposit amount.

If the minimum amount of $10 is not met on the next deposit then no conversion or purchase of bitcoin will occur and 100% of deposit will arrive into your Fold Account as USD.

The bitcoin is converted once the initial deposit has settled into your Fold Card.

What Happens if I Have Insufficient Funds for My Conversion?

If your balance is too low to cover the designated conversion percentage when a deposit arrives, Fold will notify you. The conversion will occur on the next deposit that brings your balance up to a sufficient level.
