Who are the founders of Stables? 

Stables is one of Australia’s new wave of crypto debit card providers with a twist – they only use stablecoins. The business was co-founded by Erez Rachamim, Bernardo Bilotta, Daniel Li, David Nichols, and Tony Tao. 

A product of the 2021 bull run, Stables have teamed up with Mastercard to let Aussies spend USDC, USDT, DAI & PYUSD at local and international merchants like they would AUD. 

In 2024, Stables is gearing up to expand their card offering to both Europe and Southeast Asia.

What Can You Do on Stables?


Stables’ key service is its debit card. The Mastercard-affiliated product allows customers to spend supported stablecoins at both brick-and-mortar and online retailers. The USD stablecoin card can be used both locally and internationally.


The Stables smartphone app also comes with an in-built wallet for managing your stablecoins. This can also be used to send and receive stablecoins comparable to transferring fiat from one bank account to another. These transactions presently occur on the Polygon network but Stables is working on expanding their supported blockchains. You can send it to other Stables users or to a wallet address on a supported chain. On-chain transactions to an external wallet incur a fee, but stables-to-stables off-chain transfers are free.

Bridge / Swap

Stables supports Native USDC, USDT, DAI and PYUSD deposits across 7 EVM chains and Solana. All funds are stored as USDC on Polygon, and can be withdrawn as USDC or USDT across the 7 EVM chains, with more blockchains announced to be coming soon.

For example, this means if you have USDT on Binance Smart Chain and wanted USDC on Polygon, Stables could be an extremely efficient way of converting your stablecoins and going cross-chain with them.
