London based payments company Wirex claimed this week that it has taken one step closer to becoming the ultimate cryptocurrency platform with the launch of the waitlist for its multi currency card.
The launch follows Wirex’s record-breaking crowdfunding campaign coming to a close, raising £3.7m in two weeks.
Wirex said that its new product aims to bring cryptocurrency to the mainstream, by making it even easier for its 3.1 million customers to utilise multiple cryptocurrencies in everyday life.
Due to launch in November, the new card is linked to 19 secure currency accounts in the Wirex app, allowing Wirex cardholders to seamlessly spend multiple fiat and cryptocurrencies, anywhere that accepts Mastercard, without exchanging, or offboarding.
Wirex recently announced a next-generation product overhaul, which began with a partnership with payment solution company LHV, including the launch of five new currencies, free multicurrency individual IBANs, free SEPA multi currency transfers and zero foreign exchange fees.
Pavel Matveev, co-founder and CEO of Wirex, said: “Since becoming the first-crypto native platform to achieve principal membership with Mastercard, and hinting at the launch of a revolutionary new Wirex Mastercard card in the EEA region, there has been an overwhelming response from users wanting to be the first to get their hands on the product. It’s always been our aim to bridge the gap between the traditional and digital economy, and the benefits that the new product brings will realise this even further.”
Wirex is based in London with offices in Singapore, Kyiv, Tokyo, Toronto, Dallas, Dublin and Atlanta.
