When should I stake CRO to secure the MCO Visa card?
Staking CRO will give you the staking benefits stated above.
When your metal MCO Visa card is ready to ship, we will notify you to update the app and stake the CRO in the App - that's when you will need to stake them in order to receive your MCO Visa card.
Can I increase the staking amount (upgrade)?
Yes. During the initial 180-days staking period, you can increase the amount of staked 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 stake and the one you are going for (so, for example, if you currently have staked 1,000 CRO and would like to increase to 10,000, you will need to add 9,000 CRO).
The new stake will reset the timer and another 180-days period will start. To increase your staking amount after your MCO card has been issued, please follow this upgrade process (U.S.) (Singapore) (E.U & U.K).
How can I unlock my CRO?
After the 180-days staking 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.
Note, that by unlocking CRO you will be losing a number of wallet benefits that come with CRO staking, for example:
However, your MCO card benefits (e.g. Card Cashback (of up to 2%), LoungeKey™ Access, fee-free ATM withdrawal limits and Interbank Exchange Rates) will not be affected by un-staking CRO.
