The US fintech startup Karat has unveiled its Black Card for the creators who make a living on YouTube, Instagram, Twitch, etc, according to TechCrunch.

The new credit card enables holders to use it for their business-related expenses. When creators are approved, they receive a $250 bonus that can be further applied to any purchases of electronics or equipment.

The card also offers 2% to 5% cashback rewards on purchases along with advances on sponsorship payments.

To assess the creditability, Karat focuses on the size of a creator’s following, their current revenue, and if they’re business savvy.

It’s not just the number of followers you have, but what platforms. I would rather have 100,000 subscribers on YouTube than 1 million on TikTok because on TikTok, it’s all algorithmically driven

We’ve reported that Visa has partnered card provider CPI Card Group to issue the Earthwise High Content Card made of nearly 98% recycled plastic.
