Is the blockchain fee charged by Wirex?

No, it’s a fee charged by the global blockchain network and fluctuates based on real-time network capacity.

Many more app updates are coming over the next few months — including a feedback feature inside the app so you can submit ideas to help us improve.

There’s even talk in the office of completely eliminating blockchain fees for our long-term customers.
