2. Detailed Introduction
Wirex is a UK-based global leader in digital money solutions. Its ground-breaking borderless payment platform pioneered the seamless integration of crypto and conventional currencies to democratise access to multi-currency accounts, crypto-enabled Visa cards, instant international remittance and industry-best exchange services.
Wirex makes the future of digital payments a reality, today. The company was the first to bridge the gap between fiat and cryptocurrency by enabling the use of cryptocurrencies in day-to-day life with the Wirex Visa card. Accepted at more than 40 million locations around the world, it allows customers to spend their digital currency online, in shops, restaurants and on public transport, withdraw funds from ATMs and earn cryptocurrency rewards on in-store spending.
By uniting conventional payment infrastructure such as Swift, SEPA and Faster Payments with unrestricted access to interbank and Over-The-Counter (OTC) exchange rates, Wirex empowers people to spend, exchange and transfer their money with freedom and flexibility. The platform continues to welcome new currencies to its existing portfolio of 10 digital and 11 fiat currencies. This includes its own native cryptocurrency, the Wirex Token (WXT), which entered the market after a successful IEO in June 2019.
Wirex provides a trusted and cost-effective service with a key focus on security and regulatory compliance. The Wirex platform is PCI DSS Level 1-certified, meeting the payment industry’s highest security requirements. With 6 offices across the world, over 2 million registered users and availability in 130 countries, Wirex has an ever-expanding global footprint.
