Summer may be winding down but things are heating up here at Wirex as we head towards autumn. We recently revealed the news that we’ve hit £315 million gross revenue over the last 12 months - an impressive 160% increase. Achieving this in such uncertain times is not only a positive reflection of the Wirex business model, but shows us that attitudes towards digital currencies are changing for the better.
With a strong start to September in the bag, we wanted to share with you all the similarly exciting happenings of the past month. Here’s what went on in August…
Do you know a Rising Woman in Crypto?
The women of Wirex are on a mission to show that crypto is open to all, and have recently launched the Women in Crypto campaign in order to do so. Aiming to shine the spotlight on the females of the crypto space - consumers or employees - the campaign kicked off last week with nominations opening for the Rising Women in Crypto Power List.
The power list, which is in partnership with the Fintech Times, intends to celebrate up-and-coming women involved in crypto, blockchain and fintech, who are rarely recognised for their talent and achievements. Public nominations are now open, so if you know an inspirational woman who has contributed to crypto (or indeed, if you are one) - enter now!
On the midnight train to Georgia
You may have heard - we received our first US money transmission licence from the State of Georgia last month! The licence will allow us to provide our next-gen services to the state and signifies a huge step towards our upcoming US expansion.
Approval of this licence reflects Wirex’s dedication to compliance with money transmission regulations and regional cryptocurrency laws. We are hugely excited to be able to play a part in the adoption of mainstream cryptocurrency use in the US. Watch this space for further updates!
Wirex hits the small screen
Our first global brand campaign launched in style at the beginning of the month as our shiny new TV ad hit screens around the world. The ad emphasises our goal to make all currencies - traditional or crypto - equal and accessible to all. If you haven’t already, make sure to check it out now.
It’s been a busy few months! Watch out for some big news coming your way next month about a golden opportunity to get in on the Wirex action…
