Wirex is a UK-based, FCA-licensed global leader in digital money solutions for individuals and businesses. The borderless payment platform is built on state-of-the-art technology that integrates both cryptocurrencies and traditional fiat money to facilitate the everyday spending needs of individuals and businesses.
Wirex was the first company in the world to bridge the gap between digital money and traditional fiat money by making cryptocurrencies spendable via the contactless Wirex Visa card. This industry-first allowed people to spend their crypto in everyday shops, restaurants, travel and withdraw money from ATMs anywhere Visa is accepted.
In February 2019, Wirex launched the industry’s first business account that allow companies to buy, sell, exchange and make payments using cryptocurrencies and fiat money on one platform in the name of their legal entity. This is another example of a Wirex world-first and illustrates the way that we are pushing boundaries and bringing the tokenized economy to the masses.
