From silly trinkets to the hottest trends, Binance expanded its Gift Cards selection for 2023 to include over 238 unique holiday-themed designs. The presents will range from Binance Merchandise and Cash & Savings Vouchers to rare holiday-themed Binance Smart Chain (BSC) non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

Launched in 2021, Binance Gift Card enables anyone to get a crypto gift without having to worry about fees, or barriers to entry. Over the past year, the exchange worked tirelessly to develop the ecosystem to make the crypto gifting and transfer experience via Binance Gift Card more seamless.

On top of that, Binance is hosting a series of promotional events, including Mystery Boxes and a Secret Santa promotion with rewards worth a total of $70,000 in select tokens.

There will be 36,000 new users exclusive gift card available for this promotion, which will be running until Dec. 28, 2022. Each eligible recipient will get a Secret Santa exclusive gift Card worth up to $5. To redeem the gift cards, recipients must access the platform’s official gift card website.

“The recipients will be selected randomly, with 6,000 new users receiving $5 each, 10,000 users awarded $2 each, and 20,000 users collecting $1 each. Users can claim their winnings on the Binance app or website, and to redeem the gift cards, recipients must access the platform’s official Gift Card website,” the announcement further explains.

Meanwhile, the Secret Santa promotion will be joined by a Mystery Box event running from December 19 to December 25. During this event, each Binance Gift Card will include a Mystery Box containing random rewards. Users can purchase a Mystery Box for $1 for a chance to multiply the value of their participation fee. Once the event ends, they will be able to claim their respective rewards from the Mystery Boxes.

The grand prize in the Mystery Box event on Binance is $2,000, with second and third-place winners receiving $1,500 and $500, respectively. However, Binance will allow users to recover their participation cost (entry fee) by opening the Mystery Box within the specified time frame and participating in other seasonal events throughout December.
