Wirex announced the introduction of integrated cryptocurrency and multi-currency accounts in Europe. Thus, cryptocurrency spending is now being brought back to EU, following an industry-wide shutdown.
At the same time, the company has launched the first-ever multi-currency accounts offering speedy exchange between fiat and cryptocurrencies, as well as the new contactless debit cards allowing customers to spend their money easily.
Earlier this year, all card services for spending cash converted from cryptocurrencies were closed in Europe due to an industry-wide shutdown. Now, Wirex has integrated genuine debit cards into its new multi-currency (GBP, EUR, USD, BTC) accounts. These new integrated accounts provide the flexibility of traditional financial services – such as bank-to-bank transfers – with access to bitcoins.
“Wirex is the only provider in Europe right now to offer debit cards that make cryptocurrencies a part of your everyday life. Spending in stores, buying goods online or withdrawing money in ATMs just got much easier. We were the first to bring such cards to the world and now we’re the first to bring integrated cryptocurrency accounts with contactless debit cards,” – Wirex CEO Pavel Matveev said.
Since today, new Wirex accounts and cards are available in UK. France, Germany and Italy will follow closely on March 20, while Other EU countries are to add up on March 27. Accounts and cards for Asian customers are coming soon and will be available shortly after delivery to EU countries.
