Being able to buy a Blank Record with credit card has made it much more convenient for new collectors to enter the space. However, with this convenience comes a delay in when we can send you the actual underlying token (up to 45 days). The problem with this is that Blanks are meant to be used! Their main purpose is to be recorded onto and we'd hate to delay this experience for credit card buyers. More info on how Blanks work in this article.
Enter "virtual" Blanks. If you purchase with a credit card you will see the blank in your collection right away, and you'll be able to use it to record to at any time. You have full control over the asset, we just don't deliver the underlying token to your address right away. This is why you may see "Not yet tradable" on some Blanks or Recordings. After the allotted time has passed, you'll receive the token in your wallet, whether it still be as a Blank or as a Recorded Edition. At this point you're free to trade, sell, or whatever else you'd like with it!
If you purchase a Blank Record with ETH you will receive the underlying token immediately and have full ownership.
