How to setup a Bolt Card (NFC card)

There are a number of different ways of configuring your laser eyes bolt card for use. They mainly vary from being easy to set up but requiring you to give up your private data and trust custodial services, or being slightly more technical to set up, but with much more privacy and security.

As always with Bitcoin the choice is yours! If you use a custodial service we recommend you do not put more money on it than you would hold in your regular wallet!
