Wirex launches first-ever multi-currency accounts in Europe

Wirex has announced the return of cryptocurrency spending to Europe, with the launch of the first ever multi-currency accounts. Offering speedy exchange between fiat and cryptocurrencies, customers can then use Wirex’s new current account and contactless debit cards to spend their money.

Wirex is currently the only provider in Europe to allow spending in cash, converted from cryptocurrencies and has now integrated its debit cards into its multi-currency (GBP, EUR, USD) accounts to make shopping even easier and quicker than before.

Cumbersome cryptocurrency exchanges can now be bypassed for a much more secure and speedy all-in-one account, saving time and effort. The new integrated accounts provide the flexibility of traditional financial services - such as bank-to-bank transfers - with access to real Bitcoins.

Pavel Matveev, CEO, Wirex, said: “Wirex is the only provider in Europe right now to offer crypto, converted into fiat for everyday spending on cards. Transactions in stores, buying goods online or withdrawing money from ATMs just got much easier. We were the first to bring such cards to the world and now we’re the first to bring converted cryptocurrency accounts with new contactless debit cards.”
