1.3. Preferred Cryptocurrencies. You will be required to select the order of your cryptocurrencies in your Wallet as your default spending Cryptocurrencies (“Preferred Cryptocurrencies”) before you can use your Card and can update your Preferred Cryptocurrencies at any time. When you use your Card, you authorize Purecoin to facilitate your sale of your Preferred Cryptocurrencies, the proceeds of which you authorize Purecoin to use to fund Card Transactions in Fiat Currency.

1.5.1. Sale of your Preferred Cryptocurrencies in order you have selected. If your first selected cryptocurrency is not enough for the settlement of the Total Purchase Price (as defined below), you will be charged the second selected and so on, until the total amount of the Purchase Price plus the accompanying fees and charges described in the Cardholder Agreement, this User Agreement and Purecoin Terms and Conditions (together, the “Total Purchase Price”) is converted at the prevailing trading rate on Purecoin’s platform (“Exchange Rate”) (the “Total Transaction Price”) from your Wallet; and
