The size of the limit by default is set to USD 50'000 can be raised to 100.000 USD, for that you need to make a request and prove source of income.
Are you sure it is possible to rise this limit?
I asked them and they told it is fixed at 50.000 USD.

On their website they say the plastic and virtual VISA cards will be available the 1st of December,
Where did you find this information?
I already have a card since a few month with them.
Remember, the card is 1 CHF per month.

in the faq (link above) How to increase account limits?
The limit on account balance can be increased upon condition that you manage to prove that you can place the requested sum on your account. In this case the size of the limit can be increased up to USD 100'000.

It's easy to open an account via the app (or apps). The video conference is weird since you don't see the other person, unlike many other EMIs which use a third party like Go ID where you can see the other person. The lack of human connection makes it quite jarring. On top of that, the app is terrible to use compared to Bunq, Revolut, Transferwise, and other more mature solutions, and the fees aren't very attractive.

But if you want a Swiss bank account opened online, it's probably the easiest option right now.

You created an account there or where? How did it go?

Are you happy with them? Do you think in 5-10 years, would you face a problem because you have an account at that bank? I know Transferwise shut down accounts of people if they work with Russian or Ukranian banks. Offshore banks usually have negative reputation when you want to transfer your money to traditional locations or want to do business with highly regulated (aka safe) entities, which can cause issues.
