What is Plutus?
Plutus consists of three aspects:
The Plutus App is an Android and iOS app for managing almost every aspect of your Plutus Account. Every deposit you make rewards you in Pluton, a loyalty token which is a fundamental part of an upcoming customer reward system.
The Plutus Debit Card is a feature that makes it possible to pay at over 40 million merchants both online and in-store right away, provided that they accept debit cards or contactless payments.
The PlutusDEX is a one-way peer-to-peer exchange. The way this works is that PlutusDEX users can escrow fiat currency such as GBP or EUR to purchase Pluton and Ethereum from other users in the Plutus ecosystem.
What are Plutons?
Plutons are digital ERC-20 tokens issued on the Ethereum blockchain. Their value will be decided entirely by the users, independent from the control of Plutus and other centralised entities.
Why choose Plutus over other competitors?
Our main difference from competitors is that we don’t store your cryptocurrency while we provide a decentralised platform.
We have some great incentives to use our service, where you will receive a Pluton reward of up to 3% each time you spend using the card.
We also offer a fee-less subscription model based on staking PLU - you can learn more about it here.
How do I open an account?
