We’ve recently made some changes to our crypto custody provider. All cryptocurrencies available in the Wirex app are now supported by leading crypto custody platform, Fireblocks!
While many of our newer tokens were already supported by Fireblocks, we decided it was time to upgrade our remaining cryptocurrencies, as well.
This means that your tokens now have a new crypto address, which has replaced your old addresses.
In the meantime, here’s what the upgrade means for your crypto:
Sending crypto? Save as much as 67% on gas fees when transferring funds, thanks to Fireblocks’ cutting-edge Multi-Party Computation (MPC) technology.
Use just one crypto address for all of your tokens on a wide range of blockchains, including Ethereum, Polygon and Avalanche.
Choose from even more tokens and connect to even more DeFi applications via different chains. Plus, we’re adding support for new tokens and blockchains all the time, so stay tuned!
HODL with peace of mind thanks to Fireblocks’ insurance coverage of $30m.
Our upgraded infrastructure means that your transactions can now be processed without delays - even during peak hours and market rallies.
Benefit from significant blockweight savings by sending crypto with a SegWit address. Not sure if your address supports SegWit? If the address on the receive screen begins with “bc1”, you’re good to go!
