Your August news and updates!

It’s the first day of August, which can only mean one thing - it’s International Mountain Climbing Day.

This special day honours Bobby Matthews and Josh Madigan, who successfully climbed the 46 high peaks of New York State’s Adirondack Mountains in 2015.

Climbing a mountain comes with highs, lows and an overwhelming fear of the unknown. It tests your patience and endurance like nothing else. Well, except perhaps the crypto market.

We’ve been busy moving some mountains of our own this month at Wirex. Want to know what we’ve been up to? Read on to find out!
