When should I lockup CRO to secure the Crypto.com Visa card?
Locking up CRO will give you the lockup benefits stated above.
You need to lockup enough CRO for your metal Crypto.com Visa card. When the lockup is done, we will review your application and as soon as your card status is changed to "Shipped", the card will be on its way to you.
Can I increase the lockup amount (upgrade)?
Yes. During the initial 180-days lockup period, you can increase the amount of lockup CRO, by going to your CRO wallet in the app and selecting the Upgrade button.
You will be prompted to add the difference between your existing lockup and the one you are going for (so, for example, if you've currently locked up 2,000 CRO and would like to increase to 20,000 CRO, you will need to add 18,000 CRO).
The new lockup will reset the timer and another 180-days period will start. To increase your lockup amount after your Crypto.com card has been issued, please follow this upgrade process (U.S.) (Singapore) (E.U & U.K) (Canada)(Brazil)(Australia).
How can I unlock my CRO?
After the 180-days lockup period is completed, you'll be able to unlock your CRO. Simply go to the CRO wallet in your App and tap the “Unlock” button.
