Following the closing of its highly successful Crowdcube campaign, payments platform Wirex has announced the waitlist for its Wirex multicurrency card. Wirex reported that the card is part of its plan to become the ultimate cryptocurrency platform. The waitlist also comes just a few months after Wirex was announced as Mastercard’s first “crypto-native” principal member in July, and will be available to customers in the EEA region.
“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.”
Speaking about the upcoming launch, Pavel Matveev, co-founder and CEO of Wirex, stated:
“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.”
As previously reported, Wirex is a UK FCA-licenced global digital payment platform that has forged new rules in the digital money arena. The company also claims it is the only platform that allows access to OTC and interbank rates for crypto and traditional currency exchanges respectively, ensuring the platform’s users always get the best deal.
