Ah, January. The Monday of the year. It may not be everyone’s favourite month, but we’ve certainly managed to cram a lot into it. From podcasts to new partnerships - let’s take a look at everything we’ve been up to since we last caught up.
From the margins to the mainstream
Our Founder and CEO, Pavel Matveev, spoke to Soaked by Slush about the evolution of crypto.
Listen to the podcast on Spotify to hear Pavel’s thoughts on crypto, competition and company culture.
Fee-free February is now live!
Don’t say we don’t spoil you - Fee-free February is now live! That means zero credit and debit card fees when you buy crypto in-app from now until the end of February.
Buying top cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, litecoin and ether through Wirex has never been quicker, easier or better value.
Don’t waste any time –
Some Stellar research
Over the past 6 months, we’ve been conducting research into our customers’ views on cryptocurrency, together with our longtime partner, Stellar.
The report shows some surprises. Did you know that only 25% of respondents have heard of stabelcoins? Or that 57% are aged over 45?
A huge thanks to everyone who participated in the survey - your answers have helped us form a clearer picture of crypto’s role in the future of money.
2020 in numbers
Want to know how many bitcoins we gave out last year? Curious as to which currencies were Wirexers’ favourites? Or which fast food restaurant came out on top?
We’ve got the answers for you in our 2020 facts and figures. Take a look to find out more about what Wirexers got up to last year.
Visa principal membership
We’ve only gone and done it again. Wirex has become the second ever crypto-native company to become a principal member of Visa.
This huge achievement will help us kick off our ambitious plans for 2021, by allowing us to issue our own cards, offer new innovative products and apply for additional licenses.
You can find out more in our blog post.
